READING RACER by SeaShells Education
Reading Racer started as a cooperative learning experience through Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute and Entertainment Technology Center (ETC), funded by SeaShell's Education based in San Mateo, CA. The game involves reading aloud into the iOS device, measuring speech recognition and reading precision targeting early struggling readers. I was hired as the art lead, working under our VP of Product/Producer during my final semester of learning at the ETC. I continued to work as an independent contractor after graduation remotely from Pittsburgh, PA.
Some of my responsibilities included: Concept Art, All 2D Assets, 2D Animation, UX/UI Mock-Ups, Content Curation/Management and Branding.
