Starbucks “Pick of the Week” App created by NMU Art & Design Alum


har•mo•ny 2 is a beautiful puzzle experience of color and music blended in perfect harmony.  I created the game in early 2014 to provide a sequel to the original game as it was received so well.  Also to work with Hammock who are immensely talented musicians who create some of the most beautiful music you will ever hear.  While minimalistic aesthetically, the game contains significant depth as color palettes are grouped together based on style, and captivating music by Hammock is harmonized with the mood and style of each set of palettes.  Apple has even gone so far as to refer to the game as a “mélange of sound and stimulus”.
