MonkeyGram was as easy as putting on a puppet show – you picked a background (or photo), added a few characters, and pressed the record button. MonkeyGram recorde your voice as you moved your Zombies, Spies, Superheroes, and Cheerleaders around onscreen and turned your message into an animated cartoon video. You could even customize your characters with your friends’ Facebook photos.
These are sketches from the early, early stages of Monkeygram's formulation. The final application began to bear some resemblance to some of the later tests in this exercise, but the focus for this project was ideation to be fleshed out further by another designer.
Character design and ideation. Traditional sketchbook drawings, digital painting, vector illustration with photographed and found textures.
