Leila Ismailava is an entrepreneur based in Los Angeles, California. She launched a startup called Stardust AR and asked SLON Media to help with the development of an interactive AR fairy tale book The Dreams of Ariadna.
To create an interactive book with illustrations describing the hero’s story and to develop an augmented reality mobile app based around the book.
The Dreams of Ariadna is a fairy-tale for children that helps them to learn and improve cognitive skills through having an interactive experience. The augmented reality technology combined with a narrative story allows kids to become a part of a fairy-tale world.
Leila Ismailava invented the story of a girl named Ariadna and the SLON Media Team helped her to design the book and to develop an app.
A team of 4 worked on the project. We started with the visual concept and graphic arts and prepared the book design and all the illustrations for the story. Leila and our illustration artist worked on sketches and with the 3D art department, where they are embodied in a three-dimensional model.
In the next step, the 3D assets are given movement by the motion designer. The final stage is editing and bonding motion models with an app and special marks in the book using an AR tool. After several months of work, the app was uploaded to the App Store.
