In a fragile economic context – in which (kids) apps have to come free or heavily discounted to the consumer – I’m not sure that everyone is aware of the amount of work and creativity required to make an app in general and “All my Love (for You)” in particular…
Ouch, this is an introduction that sounds like the beginning of an opinion piece!
It’s not. Indeed, I would have then chosen a more provocative title… with double entendre – e.g. “When you’re passionate (s), you do not count” – and a more rhetorical style.
But no, no… it’s not the objective of this post. I will allow myself to quote Dominique Maes who has once again found the right words to describe our collaboration: “A peaceful journey.” Because it is indeed a journey into the text, in the form, in the process of creation and communication.
This is an ambitious journey (and maybe a little megalomaniac at time) which requires thoughtful preparations and permanent care. Nothing laborious but a careful work and attention to details that require the ability to challenge and re-invent oneself. Hundred times on the job, back to work! And forward, always forward because “All my Love (for You)” is an artwork in constant expansion.
And that’s what we did last Sunday between the pear and cheese … we gathered our small team together: Dominique himself, the iOS developer, the little hand working on photoshop (me) as well as mini – and adult – testers …
Dominique discovered then his latest illustrations installed in the application (do not look for them, they are being developed and therefore still hidden). We saw him nod, take notes and rub his hands … And here, we should have been wary of those tell-tale signs… because, when opening our mailbox this morning, it was a bit like he had not slept a wink since Sunday! Indeed, we’ve just received his notes and new artworks that will further enhance the book app.
So, you should soon be able to discover the new pages of the book. We will keep you informed of the events very quickly…
Indeed, it is a journey that we would like to continue in pleasant company, in your company. This is why we try to let you know of the work-in-progress but also to engage in a dialogue with you through this blog and our Facebook page.
We look forward to hearing from you as well!
