The Brief

NIGALA is the Northern Ireland Guardian Ad Litem Agency.  Guardians ad Litem, managers and admin staff all work for the NIGALA.  NIGALA needed an app that enabled its service users to fill out information regarding their family and who they see as their family. This information is then used by the guardians and courts to get a clearer understanding of what would be in the user's best interests. Although the app was developed by Sugar Rush Creative, Animate Studios created all the illustrations which involved redrawing the current illustration provided by NIGALA.

Illustrations Before

Look and Feel

Animate Studios decided to make the new illustrations very vibrant and as the primary output was digital rather than for print, we had a greater choice when it came to colours.

Illustrations After


Many of the illustrations had label and text.  We used a clearer font and masked the artwork with a thought bubble so the user could see that the Judge would be considering all options.
