Dreamworks - Monsters Vs. Aliens Monster Creator App & Ratings Site

Role: Creative Director, Designer
This was another hugely successful project while I was at Curious Oranj. To support the Dreamworks Animation title "Monsters Vs Aliens", we partnered with Manifest Games to develop a full Unity3D application called the "Monster Creator" where users could create their own monster in Dr. Cockroach's lab, send it to friends and also place it in the Monster Gallery where visitors could vote for their favorite monster. The application featured a high level of possibility in the monster creations as well as fun taglines and "voices". Facebook users could also use it to create their profile images and share with friends. The application was featured in 19 languages and quite popular across worldwide territories. The design was led by Barry Hamaguchi and the flash development was lead by Andre Yi. Designer Nick Ignacio spearheaded the localization effort. I worked with Stuart Hall and our partner at Manifest Games Matt Scott to develop the concepts. I also did quite a bit of writing for the project and managed the design team at Curious Oranj. As always, I jumped into design and production whenever possible. Check out the live site below.
