Astroleap began as a challenge to create an app targeted at girls ages 10-14, to gather interest in exploring a career within the STEM fields. Through research, my partner and I decided to integrate the practice of these subjects with space travel.

Shortened from the Latin word ‘Novaturient,’ meaning the desire for something new, Novatur is a low-budget travel, culture, and lifestyle inspiration magazine. Each issue of the monthly publication centers around a different location of the world, to give the reader a personal look into the region’s culture. The print version of Novatur inspired me to extend the brand by using the Origami Engine software to create a digital iPad version of the magazine.
