Happy Awesome Studios

I led a multidisciplinary team in the creation of Brightly, an app that automatically monitors your exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays based on the UV index at your location. By detecting when you are outdoors, Brightly is able to track your UV exposure over time and give you a “report card” for sun smarts.

As creative director, I worked with designers, an illustrator, writers, a dermatologist, software developers and marketing managers. I helped develop a simple user experience which we iterated on until we had a releasable app. I also completed production tasks such as exporting assets and updating HTML web views.
