Those close to Bottle Rocket know our story started with a few sketch pads from Office Depot and the passion to build something amazing. We keep that tool close, by always having sketch pads around our office to get our ideas down on paper! We have iPad and iPhone versions that we have passed along to many of our clients and partners.
Recently we heard an amazing story from our friend Richard Smith at IBM. Richard’s 6-year old son Cole is a MASSIVE Star Wars fan and had an idea to create his own iPhone game! Cole used Bottle Rocket graph paper to sketch out his ideas.
It is evident by his designs, he had a clear vision of what he wanted and was heading in the right direction! In Cole’s game, players choose a good guy and a bad guy to fight. Check out his sketches:
Cole was to share his project at his school’s science fair and enlisted Bottle Rocket’s Partner Channel Manager for a bit of advice before submitting. After talking to Darin about the idea, Cole felt a boost of confidence and entered his game into the contest.
Out of 80 entries, Cole’s game was one of fifteen projects displayed around town!
We’re expecting more great things from Cole. Give it a few years and he may just turn into a Rocketeer.
It’s always great to see the things we are most passionate about extend beyond a glowing screen and inspire others… especially children!
