Inspired by the award-winning children’s picture book “Today I Am”, we created the partner iPad app to add value to the beautiful content. From Curious to Furious, from Sad to Shy, “Today I Am”, shows all the emotions a young child encounters. It includes 20 words to help your child identify and understand common emotions. Each emotion is paired with a charming little fish showing a particular feeling, along with its name in lettering that expresses the same emotion. Dive into “Today I Am” to meet the most dazzling fish that spark laughter and empathy.

We were fascinated and delighted by the vibrant artwork of the book, and sought to find ways to get kids further engaged through the app. ‘My Words’ introduces a child to over 60 feeling words to expand their emotional vocabulary. We also sought to create a fun learning tool that would also benefit parents, so we added in the ‘My Feelings’ feature that allows a child to keep a daily record of their emotions. A parent can keep a track of this data, observe trends and use it to start important conversations about emotions. Although we had to navigate around constraints regarding the original art, we came up with an art-and-craft themed app that introduces children to emotions by drawing on their penchant for exploration.

To see the app in action, check out the demo video.

Our values are the daily beat to which we jive.

Our Story
Tusitala was born in 2010, with a focus on telling transmedia stories. We’re based in Singapore, perfectly poised to represent the breadth and depth of Asian content available in the region. With the world increasingly looking towards Asian stories, we’re both excited and proud to be where we are!

The name Tusitala harks to an island in Samoa, where author Robert Louis Stevenson spent the last years of his life. The locals of the island fondly nicknamed him Tusitala, which means storyteller. In our work, we embody the essence of a storyteller: using different mediums and techniques to deliver a powerful message to our audiences. Only, we take it a step further by introducing the exciting potential of technology.

Our logo is a kitsune – nine-tailed fox, native to Asian folklore and legend. In Chinese, Japanese and Korean folktales, the kitsune is an enchanted animal – magnetic, intelligent, powerful, and able to take human form. From the complexity of the symbolism, we derive simple principles that we stand for – potency, wisdom and creative rebellion.

(This creativity, we must disclose, often vanishes when determining where we should go for lunch each day)
