Julia Anseele, Dog Stories

bachelor digital design and development

This project deals with the important topic of education around the proper handling of dogs. Communication between dogs and their owners is often underestimated and this is especially a concern for parents with young children. Education of general knowledge on how to handle dogs would lead to peace of mind with the parents. To find a solution to this challenge I have visited an animal shelter in Ostend, and I have learned more in 3 hours than a week of researching best practices on the internet. How could I make sure that children would be able to acquire that general and actually simple knowledge like the information I had gained? I tackled this through creating the concept of an app in which children can read unique stories (based on facts) combined with educational exercises.
