I recently discovered (and have become obsessed with…) the all American, ultimate monster pie-cake, the Cherpumple. After watching Charles Phoenix’s charming video, I needed to find a way to incorporate this quirky dessert into my work immediately.
Using Flash and Illustrator I give users the opportunity to explore and learn about the infamous, triple layered wonder, the Cherpumple. This project for SCAD began as a simple homework exercise and is now growing into a more elaborate Flash project. The goal is to create an interactive application to move through “rooms” using a fixed navigation and “keys” to gain access to sections of the design.
The user gains access to the “rooms” by “blowing out” a birthday candle allowing you to bite right in! The “rooms” are a series of graphic illustrations and typography that visually guide you threw the dense icing, cake, and pie layers. Nom Nom Nom. I hope to have this touched up and published post finals– keep a look out! …till then I encourage everyone to take on the Cherpumple challenge and actually bake the thing.
