My first iPhone app, after learning the fundamentals of iPhone development from the Stanford University iPhone course (via iTunes).

This goal led to designing an app for teaching the alphabet, but in a way that would be interesting and educational for parents, too. The design uses typography and photography based on three periods of design history: Arts & Crafts, Bauhaus, and early Modernism expressed in the designs and branding of the London Underground.
