College package design project:
Tasked to create a game or city out of paper with a strong concept behind it.
Engage yourself in this immersive environment known only as Beat Street. The finial resting place for your beloved musical instruments that just couldn't beat the decaying effects of time. When your faithful instrument bites the dust they are reborn to live the rest of their lives making music in the utopia known as Beat Street. Your instrument is transported to a town where they can live the rest of their lives doing what they love, creating music.
Construct your city, organize and interact with it any way you can possibly imagine. Inhabitants of Beat Street can interact with each other, be on the street, buildings, there are endless possibilities!
One summer I had an internship with "Friends With You". During my time there they were approached by Nick Toon’s to create a spot for them. I was tasked to create some music characters. When I can back for school and found out about the paper city project I thought it would be a great opportunity to put this characters to some constructive use and then "Beat Street" was born!
