Art Direction, design, illustration

I had the opportunity to lead the art direction and illustration for Kano’s Harry Potter Coding Kit. I worked closely with the creative, product, and Warner Bros. teams to ensure a great experience when building and coding your wand.

We illustrated a massive library of environments, characters, maps, and objects to be able to tell the rich stories from the Wizarding World, but through a Kano filter.

Software assets

We decided to use maps of iconic locations - Diagon Alley, Hogwarts Grounds, Hogwarts Castle - as navigation devices for users to jump between challenges and to track their progress. Custom Lesson Cards were made to introduce coding challenges, alongside Wizarding World objects, trinkets, and creatures to create with.

I am deeply impressed at how beautifully the team at Kano has brought the wizarding world into this kit. They really understand and love Harry Potter. I was blown away by the range of spells and Harry Potter-related graphics available to work with. I had so much fun just discovering all the objects you can interact with…

Every kit comes with a booklet that guides you through the build, page by page, step by step, and demystifies the technology behind the magic. We also designed a Spell Motion poster and stickers.
