Kids! Draw funny animals!
Parents! Help your kid start drawing, and learn the alphabet!
Expand your iPhone/iPad, all you need to get started is pen and paper, and the app.

Our goal with Drawnimal was to expand your device by using simple tools like pen and paper. Drawnimal motivates the children to draw around the device and encourages them to think outside of the box. The app helps them to leave the digital screen with a simple physical interaction. It shows the children how to draw the main features of animals. The funny animations motivate them to learn the alphabet.

“The idea was born while my daughter and I played with an alphabet book. This book showed us how to build an origami-animal out of a paper letter. I wanted to bring a similar analog and funny learning experience to our daily digital devices.”
- Lucas Zanotto, designer/animator
