"Grow your own virtual garden."
The design challenge for this project was to develop an app for children with a real-world application. The solution enables its users to grow their own garden virtually and learn about plants, while also providing an opportunity to create their own real terrarium. The name “Gnomology” comes from the words “gnome” and “biology,” showcasing the use of gnomes as creative direction. The logo and icon are designed to appeal to children. While the logo is quite simple and inviting for optimized readability, the icon uses a bit more detail to match the whimsical style and illustrative style of the app. The colors used enable an organic look that is representative of this being a gardening activity.
The app utilizes touch screen and imagery for the children to play. The garden is directly interactable and clicking on the different objects in the environment will lead to something else.
