Color snap

Project Game concept and pitch sheet, self-initiated Role Idea, visual design, layout

The game idea for color snap is simple: Find a color with the camera of your phone and snap it. Players get points on color-accuracy of their snaps. The game poses an engaging and playful challenge between friends and can be played wherever you and your friends are at. The development of the game concept and the above pitch sheet was guided by guest lecturers from one of Finland's top mobile game development houses, Rovio, as a course work in my bachelor studies at in Digital Art.

The center for restoration of old wood buildings is as much an educational division at the Turku University of Applied Sciences as it is a source of information and tradesman knowledge. My logo design won a student competition by conveying the reuse and restoration of buildings in a clear and elegant emblem. The co-operation was extended into designing and coding a website with information about center and its activities.
