Objective: Create a real-time education application for people to engage other learners worldwide. (This project was in 2014 before YouTube Live.)


Approach: There are many educational tools however none at the time that successfully tackled the vital element of interactive learning. I chose to create an online application called Hooky that focused on learning new material while sharing one’s experiences using FaceTime. Using FaceTime was the essential real-time element for the app that built a more connected learning process and community. 


I used Viking Rune symbols to design the logo because of their similarity to pirate symbols hoping to create a sense of nostalgia for the users. I tweaked the font Panton by combining it with the Viking Runes and used the color green to represent education and learning.
