Timo Dries Executive Director
Fox & Sheep (SHINE)
The creation of SHINE and what to consider when attacking a T-Rex with a torchlight
In 2018 Fox & Sheep wanted to try something new. They left their comfort zone made of cute characters and bright colors to set out to a new adventure: a mindful app for the whole family that doesn’t feed on the player’s dopamine levels.
Timo will offer a deep insight into how Fox & Sheep approached this project, and most importantly, into what worked and what went horribly wrong.
As a kid, Timo always wanted to work for Disney. Later, he discovered his love for music and neglected his drawing skills. Today, he is Executive Director of Fox & Sheep, responsible for the idea, vision, look & feel as well as the realization of new, innovative digital products for kids.
He is leading a team of award-winning artists, developers, and sound designers, driving them crazy with weird stickman mock-ups and home recorded humming choirs.
Throughout his years at Nickelodeon and Wooga, he developed a deep passion for user experience & usability. Besides that, he’s pretty good at Super Bomberman 2 on the SuperNintendo.
