Hendi – Sign language app

During late spring, early summer of 2017, the graphic designer Kine Skjerpen and I made the design for an app focusing on learning sign language. The app is mainly aimed for children without hearing loss to have a better understanding of the language as well as learning to be able to communicate with deaf people. It is also aimed for deaf children as well, so that they can learn more, and for the third target group, teachers and parents that can encourage children to use the app as well as learning and using it themselves.

It was made as an exam project for my bachelor studies in graphic design.
We made a promotion video, app icon and poster. All is in Norwegian.

For the English speakers: The point of the game is to travel around in Norway with the character Hendi to learn different words in sign language. The words you learn is related to the place you visit and walk through, and you also have quiz’s to see if you remember the words. You can also compare your score to others on the score chart on the app. With the points you gather, it makes it possible for you to unlock different areas of the country to continue the game.
