EARLY LEARNING LANGUAGES AUSTRALIA

Millipede for the Australian Federal Government & Department of Education & Training

The Australian Government funded the ELLA program Trial to test the effectiveness of providing preschool children (ages 3-5) with exposure to a language other than English.

Millipede was commissioned to lead the learning design, language recording, creative direction and technical build for the program, as well as a system for tracking and displaying the Trial data. 

The success of the original trial has seen it expanded in 2016 and 2017 to further childcare centres and additional languages, with a projection to ship nationally in 2018. 

 

Visual Design

ELLA is a wonderful project to be apart of. It's extremely collaborative and brings together a team of designers, animators, developers, learning designers, producers and kids! The style of The Polyglots universe had already been set when I joined the project back in 2014 and I was responsible for the following:

- Character & Background Design 

- Asset & Prop Design

- Character Rigging & File Prep for Animation (Adobe Animate)

- 2D Character Animation
