Timing Is Everything
In partnership with The Playful Learning Lab, we collaborated with OK Go to transform their wildly experimental, painstakingly timed, STEAM-heavy music videos into an engaging digital playground for K-12 students. With only 8 weeks til launch we set to work designing and building, even as engineering professors fine-tuned lesson guides and the band wrapped principle photography.
Designed to help educators translate heady technical concepts into grade-appropriate teachable opportunities, the design of OK Go Sandbox expertly balances the band's bright, high-contrast aesthetics with thoughtfully intuitive, teacher-tested user experience.
Never Really Done
Since 2018, the Sandbox and our partnership has only continued to grow with 4 new music videos and lessons, an Art-In-Space contest, improved sorting and filtering capabilities for educators and the debut of Ask OK Go, a section where the band answers questions from some of their youngest fans—students.
