New Lakes International Comic Art Festival "App" offers artwork rewards
Heading to the Lakes International Comic Art Festival? Get the Festival app on your iPhone, iPad or iTouch - and grab some artwork rewards as you explore Kendal.
Created by Mobetrics, a Cumbrian mobile technology and app development company, the app, designed by Joe Lethbridge at Cactus Creative, will enhance your Festival experience by providing event information, assistance in finding venues.
With Bluetooth enabled, the app also offers the option to collect artwork on your as you go along, by artists such as Duncan Fegredo, Aimee de Jongh and Christian Ward, among others.
This is the first phase and the Festival is looking for your feedback on what will make the app, and the Festival, even better!
Based in Cockermouth, Mobetric's work designing apps for IOS, Android and Blackberyy includes Stolen Lives, a learning resource featuring an illustrated comic book, which builds upon extensive research into the use of visual content and mental exploration to aid learning as well as employing the principles of transformative learning techniques.
