Developing a Brand-Building Strategic Partnership

Gen X and Millennial moms are hanging out online, with their babies on their laps. So the brand demonstrates commitment to cognitive development with an application designed to stimulate baby's mind throughout the critical first year.

Delivering a Meaningful Brand Experience to Mom and Her Little One
n ethnographic study. We found that new moms spend plenty of time online - with their infants on their knees.

Using this as our source for inspiration, we decided to provide parents with a way to stimulate mental development using the Wee Gallery art and created the Wee Gallery app. The app is designed with a deep understanding of infant development gained through research and partnering with experts. The app also evolves with baby - from Slideshow mode for newborns to puzzle mode for older babies - based on how to best stimulate their cognitive development.
The application was built in Flash to provide a high definition experience. Because this was a deeply engaging experience, the team utilized full screen to really immerse mom and baby, sound to engage baby's auditory sense, animation and simple motion to stimulate baby's focus and ability to track. 

An alternate version was designed for mobile devices and for when Flash was turned off.
Fun facts entertained moms and emphasized the criticality of good nutrition's impact on infant development.
