The Purrrfect Match: An Interactive Story about Finding Love in Today's Society
“The Purrrfect Match” is a senior thesis project that I created to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from the University of Notre Dame. It is a humorous and fictional story that satirizes the stigma placed on single individuals by our society. “The Purrrfect Match” follows the life of the main character, Marie as she searches for her true love and attempts to avoid a lonely life as the “crazy cat lady.” The plot focuses on the relationships with thirteen men that Marie has at different points in her life. Each of these relationships is influenced by a different outside source. Each of Marie’s relationships is flawed in a different way and these flaws are emphasized through humorous conflicts involving the different men and Marie’s ever-increasing number of cats. For this project, I wrote the story, digitally illustrated all of the elements, animated the illustrations in Adobe Flash, designed the interface and made the story an interactive iOS app.
