Windy & friends was originally a series of books illustrated and written jointly with my creative partner Judith Steedman. The books were successful and called "playfully ingenious" by Publisher's Weekly. Sunny, which featured a CD with original music (produced by Brady Cranfield) featured music by Dan Bejar of Destroyer and Nick Krgovich, was featured in Virgin Records.
In 2014, we developed our books into a series of apps produced by Loud Crow & TwoFold Films, taking on the roles of art directors and directors (jointly). We also created the stories and worked on all stages of development, including UI design, writing and set design and production.
The apps, which are still being released, have so far been honoured with:
· iTunes Editor's Choice (three times)
· iTunes top ten Best New Apps
· iKids Kidscreen award "Best Learning App, Smartphone" 2015 and 2016
· Parents' Choice approved (twice)
· Bologna Ragazzi Digital award shortlist
· Appysmart award
This spring, our character, Sunny, appeared on the cover of Small Wonder.
