Storypanda Mobile Publishing Partners with Vancouver Film School to Change Children’s Publishing

Wallers Wild West by Amrit Pal Singh and Hasan Habib

A press release was sent out last Monday (February 25, 2013) from Storypanda, announcing a partnership with VFS. As anyone who attended the recent Digital Design Talks Childish Charms would know, there is a long standing association between the program and the interactive storytelling company by way of StoryPanda’s Art Director and Digital Design grad Simon Vieira. Now we can add two more Digital Design grads to their team: Amrit Pal Singh and Hasan Habib. The two graduates from Digital Design’s 21st class have worked together on producing two books for Storypanda that reimagine classic tales. The first of these, Wallers Wild West has just been released for the iPad and is available at the App Store.
