To celebrate good Friend Sam Jarman’s imminent wedding and for a bit of fun on the stag, John and I designed him an epic board game called Jarmanji. The board game featured 34 squares for each year of his life and 34 cards with questions and challenges based on the specific year. We also had a stack of fail cards with forfeits and designed T-shirts for everyone.

Having worked on PopJam for more than a year I’m proud to announce its release on both IOS and Android. PopJam is a fun creative community where you can share drawings, photos, stickers and audio messages with friends! The app is aimed at 7-12 year olds who customise their profile to express themselves. Users can follow channels and friends to find funny pictures and interesting challenges. As lead designer on the app I developed the first prototype with a small team of 4 in our own time and then went on to define the branding of the current app. I’ve designed the UI for both IOS and Android, the logo, website, marketing, various sticker packs, and helped define the products core features. I’ve also been involved in user testing, and channel content, specifically the ‘game’ and ‘art’ channels. Find out more about the app here then download it and add me, whatwhat and whatwhatjohn.
