Harnessing My Inner Child’s Imagination

PRESENTED ON SEP 30, 2015
IN TOKYO @ VOL 128

“I’m always living in the imaginary world of a child, even more so now because of my kids.”

In "Harnessing My Inner Child’s Imagination" from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 128Roy Husada, co-founder of Rival Schools, a design studio in Vancouver Canada providing UX consulting services for start-ups, shares the story behind making the award-winning Brambleberry Tales, a series of original stories in the form of interactive apps. Blending inspiration from his own children along with the oral stories of the Indigenous People of Pacific Northwest, his team’s goal was to preserve a disappearing oral tradition while making a book both little kids and big kids (like himself) would appreciate.

Bound to catch the imagination of your children, or spark your own inner child, Brambleberry Tales takes interactive story-telling to a whole other level.

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Friday, October 16th, 2015.
