The application uses videos that the parents think are the most appealing to their children as a persuader to catch the children’s attention (can choose from different platforms: cellphone library, Vimeo or native Akuarella Video. iPad Version supports YouTube).

“The most interesting task in this project was to prepare a cartoon illustration of a teddy bear with a magical camera that mesmerizes children to make a cool photo. Although the app is used by adults, we wanted to keep the atmosphere for kids fun. In the illustration, I used the colors of the application – the tone of pink and blue. Orange was a complementary color for the blue background to get attention to the teddy bear, which is the main figure. The teddy bear has been used in applications and marketing materials.”


The application includes a set of frames and stickers that can be used to decorate photos. We tried to match them on different occasions (e.g Birthdays or Christmas) and encouraged them to create. We have also added stickers for birthdays, balloons with inscriptions, balloons, flowers, bows and drawing animals.


When you finished editing the picture, you can share it on different social media platforms and on all the applications that you have installed on your smartphone.

The main colors of the application were chosen based on the title and theme of the application. To emphasize the creative atmosphere of the application, we put in the background the design of watercolor paints, and the main colors used to associate us with young children pink and blue. We chose bright shades that give a cheerful atmosphere of fun.
