Extensive story boarding to ensure the journey through the App told the story the client wanted and made the most of all interactive content available. With over 10 bespoke animations and extensive interactivity, we exceeded the client’s expectations and the App was well received. Client gave feedback that ‘its one of the best pieces of work we’ve seen’.
