The helium tank is our mash up of ideas + art + design + events and everything in between. Work that makes us smile, art that’s all around, events that we hope you’ll join us, or words we’re stitching together. The helium tank is a big window into who we are.
helium has once again joined forces with renowned artist Chuck Fischer for another iPad app. Our last rendezvous with Chuck led to the development of interactive book apps for A Christmas Carol and Twas The Night Before Christmas with an additional Snow Globe app to market the former.
Art & Healthy Living is a collage based iPad app for a younger demographic that promotes nutrition. The concept originated from New York City based Studio In A School’s program to educate kids on healthy eating. Students currently use fruits and vegetables as inspiration to draw or paint works of art. However the need for a mobile component to this program became essential to getting it out to a wider audience.Chuck Fischer has crafted custom fruit and vegetable elements along with interesting shapes and patterns.
helium is now developing an exciting interface and design that allows the user to interact with these pieces to make original digital collages within the style of a still life, superhero and portrait.
Not only does the app allow the user to make great artwork, but it also teaches the importance of eating healthy. As various fruits and vegetables are selected, facts about each food item appears on the screen and is stored in a personal page where the user can review the benefits of their choices.
We are excited to be part of a project that is not only creative, but educates youth on a healthier way of life and supports a truly groundbreaking program.
