KMi has a long track record of co-designing innovative demonstrators and it’s always rewarding when we hear back from our collaborators about how our prototypes have evolved and continue to influence practice.

In a recent article on the whitefox blog, Natalia Kucirkova, a Senior Research Fellow at University College London, talks about the challenges of designing the Our Story app for iPad, the original version of which was the outcome of one such KMi collaboration in 2011. Natalia says she is particularly grateful to KMi’s Paul Hogan for his contribution to creating the app.

The latest version of the app, which enables young children to create and read digital picture books on handheld devices, was redeveloped by a commercial developer in 2015 and is available on the ITunes store.
