Aqua Colour App officially launches today! Proceeds go to the Vancouver Aquarium.

Written by . Filed under Drawings, Design, Press, Blogging. Comments Off on Aqua Colour App officially launches today! Proceeds go to the Vancouver Aquarium..

Very excited and proud to be part of another amazing initiative. This time we are helping the Vancouver Aquarium continue to raise funds to keep their doors open.

Our very good friend Alex Beim that runs the award-winning design studio, Tangible Interaction invited us to join forces with them, The Vancouver Mural Festival, and Ocean Wise to help contribute to the new Aqua Colour App.

The app is a free download for iPhone and Android – an interactive, digital colouring book for tablets and phones inspired by the Vancouver Aquarium. Simply use your finger or stylus to select colours and brush sizes, fill and shade areas, add stickers and save or share your work.

We are proud to be contributing our art alongside other mega talents like Joanna Ambrosio, Alison Woodward and Ben Tour.

We live very close to the Vancouver Aquarium so naturally, we often take our daughter there to learn and have fun. The Vancouver Aquarium plays a very important role in our city and we can’t imagine not having it around. Being able to use our skillset to help raise funds for the Vancouver Aquarium is heartwarming and empowering.

The app is downloadable on the App Store and Google Play and proceeds go to the aquarium.

Happy to see our People Powered illustration for Powershifter become a face mask.

Love seeing our art reincarnate into so many different forms. This was initially a wall mural project we were commissioned to do for POWERSHiFTER a few years ago and today it’s a fun face mask.

Now available for purchase. These masks are hand made here in Vancouver BC and all net proceeds will be donated to WHO to assist in the battle to find a vaccine for the Coronavirus. Please allow 2 weeks for delivery.
