Lexia Reading Core 5:


In 2012 I completed animation on Lexia Reading Core 5, Lexia’s "research-proven, award-winning and most comprehensive technology-based reading skills program available."

Working with product development to design animation for leading edge K-5 Reading Software, Lexia Core 5, for browser and mobile deployment, incorporating UX feedback and best practices. I was part of an Agile/Scrum project team working remotely alongside Curriculum Experts, Project Managers, Programmers, and Designers.


Here's a new preview page on their website: Lexia Reading Core 5 Lexia Reading Core 5 is available on iPad, Android, Browser and Desktop.

Some examples of Adobe Illustrator animation art from the Illustrator to Flash pipeline I used for Lexia Learning Systems' Core5 Reading project:
