Graphic designer Stefan Bucher, the man behind online illustration/graphic design Blog, Daily Monster, is adapting his famous inkblot creatures to the iPad and iPhone. In an interview with the AIGA (professional association for design), Bucher discusses the interactive character-building application, the Daily Monster Monster Make app, which is currently available for $0.99 in iTunes.
Collaborating with Dominik Wei-Feig to develop the app, Bucher says that the Monster Maker app “lets people use their iPhones and iPads to create their own Daily Monsters from a treasure trove of inkblots and Monster parts created exclusively for the app.”
“Not only that, but they can have the monster deliver messages with customizable speech bubbles, pose for photos with their monsters, post the results to Facebook or Twitter, or put it on mugs and T-shirts with the new Zazzle button,” says Bucher to AIGA. “Our goal is to let everybody have as much fun making monsters on their iPhones and iPads as I do making them on paper.” Read the rest of the interview here.
