Miga’s Secret

Miga’s Secret is an illustrated and animated nursery rhyme, accessible through a set of seven concertina picture books and an interactive mobile application.
I’m working on this self-initiated transmedia project on and off between jobs and I’m happy to finally present an elaborated concept. The concept contains 7 small-sized Picture Books (leporello fold), 1 App for mobile devices, 7 looping Animations with amazing soundtrack, 21 Miniloops + Riddles and a smooth combination of digital and analogue media.
To come true Miga’s Secret still needs professional support and love from an experienced publisher and finance for further development and implementation. On this page you only get to see some snippets. So make sure you check out the Miga’s Secret Website to learn more about this project.

Miga’s Secret addresses four of the five senses by cleverly combining analogue and digital media.
Even if the battery is down, the concertina books offer loads of challenges and inspiration.
