Content & Context Editor for Gabble (since February 2013 to December 2013):
 
Gabble
Gabble is striving to build a universal visual language to power next generation 'text-to-image' apps.


In this role I organise the visual database for the site, apps and games. I have also helped organise a Gabble hack day to make use of the site's API as well as being involved with suggesting and developing applications and games using the Gabble database.

Pikipik, released in October 2013, was our first picture/meaning game. I helped develop the app and wrote and edited the questions for the game. It can be seen here: https://itunes.apple.com/app/pikipik/id718771698
