We Tell Stories : Tomouthy Audio Interactive Website

Interaction & Visual Design

A project that I had been thinking about for a while when Jeremy Ettinghaus approached me to help him develop an online interactive experience for kids. We both agreed there was a poor interactive offering online for kids, and wanted to raise the bar. Tomouthy was written especially with sound and audio in mind, and it made the perfect narrative to use in a creative educational context, where kids could choose to add their own audio to the story. It was designed for kids age 6-9 in mind. A favourite feature was to record your own sounds, showing how important it is for kids to feel authorship over their experiences and to be able to create something uniquely their own.
