Whatever Broadband for Kids.
is the world's largest software company, expanding quickly into
realms beyond its traditional PC Software business. In 1995, it
created a broadband application test deployment for children using
Microsoft's Tiger network and server technology. In collaboration
with (Colossal) Pictures, our team created the architecture
and UI design for several broadband applications for the channel.
Our work drove focus group adoption, we designed a proprietary screen
font for the network, created an on-screen keyboard for use by children,
and developed children's online game, messaging, and quiz applications.
