Role

When was the last time you learned something new? Was it in a classroom? Upon doing an assignment? When did someone tell you how something needs to be done? Most likely it was none of these, but a time you enjoyed doing something so much, you couldn't stop doing it, till the time you got better at it. That's why at SplashLearn we believe that learning & fun go hand in hand. We get excited by knowing that millions of 3 to 10-year-olds come to our product every month to have fun playing our carefully crafted games and end up learning Maths & English while they are at it.

While designing for kids has its own challenges, getting a parent to consider an education product for their kids is a very different ball game considering the number of products available. Creating motion design for parents will be especially challenging owing to the little time and attention they have scrolling through their social media feeds, juggling between work, kids, and life. Challenge accepted?
