In the sequence, symbols of ordinary dating life mix with over-the-top, genre-spanning imagery, reflecting the unique narrative device used in the series.
DK is proud to support and contribute web development/design to the The Art of Saving a Life campaign commissioned by our client, the Gates Foundation. The Art of Saving a Life is a collection of stories about how vaccines continue to change the course of history.

These stories are told by more than 30 world-renowned photographers, painters, sculptors, writers, filmmakers, and musicians to impress urgency on the global community to reach all children with the life-saving vaccines they need. Read about the campaign in the New York Times.

Arrange Letters. Spell words. Blow stuff up. Repeat.
Pro footballer Richard Sherman launches Letters of Boom, a simple, addictive word game that combines both the brains and brawn of the dynamic Pro Bowl cornerback. Letters of Boom is available exclusively through the App store on iPhone for $1.99 at http://AppStore.com/LOB.
Letters of Boom challenges players to use smarts and speed to master fast anagramming, make strategic choices, and leverage bonuses for high scoring. In true Sherman form, the rules of past word games are thrown out the window. Game play features Bonus Letters, Multipliers and Alarm letters that add twists and turns that will satisfy both casual gamers and word game lovers alike.
“I’ve always loved word games, but there has never been anything out there that felt hard-hitting or extreme for me,” said Sherman. “I’m excited to be one of the first professional athletes to deliver an action-oriented word game.”
Digital Kitchen worked closely with Sherman on creating all aspects of the game.
“We are excited to bring to life a mobile game that only Richard Sherman himself could imagine,” said Anthony Vitagliano, Executive Creative Director, Digital Kitchen. “His spirit, intelligence, and tenacity are all represented in the experience.”
