Our app for parents will include a virtual "house" that users can explore. Each room of the house will have objects that the user can click on. When they click on each object, they will receive a speech and language activity to do with their child.
This design competition is to establish the style of design that we want for the entire house. We want the winner of the design to continue to work 1 on 1 with us to continue to design the entire house and other features in our app. Think of this as not only a contest for one project but also for an ongoing working relationship that will be dozens of hours of additional work. We will want the winner to also draw other rooms besides the bathroom (details below), such as a kitchen, dining room, bedroom, outside of the home, outside park, etc., as well as additional objects inside each room. We also hope to lightly animate objects in the future.
What we want to create artwork for: the virtual bathroom.
Imagine that a user is 'walking' through a virtual house by clicking on doors to transition from one room to another. The user has just clicked on the bathroom door, and the virtual bathroom shows up on their smartphone screen. The user now sees a bathroom that is full of objects, such as (but not limited to):
-A bathtub with a rubby ducky on the side
-A sink with soap, toothbrush, and toothpaste
-A bathroom mirror
-A toilet and toilet paper
-A stack of a few books
-A hanging towel
The design is therefore a snapshot from the view of a person standing in the bathroom, and allows that person to see the entire room. The user will also be able to zoom in on their phone to different parts of the room in order to interact with smaller objects (e.g. a rubby ducky or a toothbrush). These objects should be roughly life-sized.
Please see attachment: Example bathroom drawing, for examples of what we are thinking of. These are just to give you a sense; the "Preferred design styles" attachment is a better representation of what kind of design we like. However, the design style is flexible.
While the app will be used by parents, not by children, we still want the design to be:
Please see attachment: Preferred design styles, for examples of types of clean and colorful design that we like, however the design style is flexible.
The most important thing is that the design looks fun to interact with. It does not need to look too realistic but it should clearly be a bathroom. Additional comments:
-3 dimensional preferred, although a good design that is 2 dimensional will be considered
-Portrait orientation, approximately 3:2 ratio, to be displayed on a smartphone in high definition. This is flexible.
-The user must be able to click on individual objects, e.g. on the toilet. Ideally each object in the overall design is vectorized and can be added or removed from the design (for example, we can decide to show or to hide the rubber ducky that is sitting on the bathtub).
