LIGHTSEEKERS

STYLE GUIDE • BRANDED DOCUMENTATION • PROMO IMAGES • packaging & print production


Lightseekers is PlayFusion's original IP, comprised of a mobile game, physical toys, as well as a trading card game. As the brand grew, we needed a style guide to provide to licensees and other partner companies who were working with our assets. 

See full style guide here: LS 2017

Project Dates: 2016-2017


I designed promotional images for social media, as well as marketing ads to reach a targeted audience. 


In October of 2016 we launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the initial round of toy and card development for Lightseekers. I designed the layout of the Kickstarter page, as well as images for the subsequent updates after the project had ended.

Project Dates: 2014

For iOS: Ookii Squiggles & Find Little Dot


To promote our app Find Little Dot, I created 10 short (15-second) promo clips to be aired in-between segments on the BabyFIrst TV channel. The simple animations were created in Flash and After Effects. Here are 4 of the clips:
