Up Syndrome (Sounds, Colors, and Shapes) is a special kid's early communication hybrid app for iOS and Android.
We believe it is going to be useful for kids two years old and up.

This is first app in a series of educational applications, which planned to be created for special kids.
All the applications will be published by Yonatans NPO – which was created especially for this case - to host the similar experiences.

Logo concept

The logo based on two letters – U (Up) and P (uP) - UP, which accompanying with few small details creates a happy face.

The textual content uses basic messages and wording, which will be finally formularised at the later stages of development, based on chosen style (expressions).

First design test

Looking for the right mood - design language. Later, when I started to test the typeface on digital devises I faced a very disappointed me fact – I could not make the types look same as on image.
This was one of the reasons, but not only, to create a second version of the app.

It is hard to express how important a typography for the design, how deeply it can affect the composition.

First design test

At the really final stages of the development process the team (hmmm.. this was actually me) has decided to enlarge the functionality as well to improve the design language of the app.
We agreed to push publication of the app until new version – v2, is created.

Thank you for your time!
