HOW DOES IT WORK?

The InstaFlorist Mobile Game App allows ANYONE to custom create any virtual flower arrangement or bouquet and select (one, more, none or all) different: SHAPES, STYLES, SIZES, COLOR SCHEMES, FLOWERS, FOLIAGE, OCCASIONS or VASES instantly, regardless of floral design experience. The choices are yours.

  • Our embedded floral frameworks replicate professionally designed arrangements perfectly and are programmed into our mobile game app according to the core principles of professional accredited floral design: Line, Balance, Color and Shape.
  • Those floral frameworks are then analyzed and programmed into our app's floral grid matrix system. Within our proprietary floral grid matrix system, there is an embedded virtual app grid.
  • InstaFlorist uses our own stem identification technology on top of the embedded virtual app grid. It is the only app of its kind that designates and identifies floral stem: types, lengths, angles, positions, colors, aesthetically correct groupings, styles, sizes and other characteristics.
  • The app user can freely and professionally design/play with an unlimited number of beautiful virtual arrangement compositions perfectly and instantly, all within the supported guidelines of our app's pre-programmed "design rules."
  • Since every professional flower arrangement follows the core principles of floral design, they likewise follow specific flower groupings and are broken down into those floral groups accordingly. InstaFlorist does the same the thing digitally.
  • The app's proprietary thumbnail groupings maintain aesthetic quality, balance and harmony. Thumbnail flower groups are arranged by specific priority. PRIMARY FLOWERS are the most important flowers or signature flowers in any arrangement. SECONDARY FLOWERS support the main flowers and are usually fewer in quantity, COMPLEMENTARY FLOWERS are typically accent flowers and so on.
  • The InstaFlorist app understands these essential flower groups and breaks down every arrangement accordingly, (pre-loaded or created from scratch) into the thumbnail image flower groups (on the left side of the app's screen.)

Key User Functions:

SCROLL-SELECT from (one, more, none or all) clickable thumbnail flower groups, located on the left side of the app screen. PRIMARY FLOWERS are always located atop of all the other flower group thumbnails (they are the most important flowers, your favorite or signature flowers of any floral arrangement) they will always be your first flower selection, then all other thumbnail flower groups follow suit: SECONDARY FLOWERS, COMPLEMENTARY FLOWERS #1, COMPLEMENTARY FLOWERS #2, ACCENT FLOWERS and FOLIAGE.

If a player chooses to select from only two flower groups (for example) the app recognizes this and automatically uses the appropriate quantity of only those flowers with foliage. If a player chooses to select from only the PRIMARY FLOWERS group (for example) "red roses," the app recognizes that particular selection and only displays a "red rose arrangement" with foliage. Depending on how large or how many roses you would like in your "red rose arrangement" (a dozen roses, two dozen roses or more) is determined by selecting the ARRANGEMENT SIZE button. There is a minimum of (02) flower group thumbnails to select from, all the way up to (06) available flower group thumbnails (including FOLIAGE.)

TOUCH-SCREEN color select ANY flower groups' (available) colors, i.e. instantly touch-screen a group of "red roses" to "pink roses." NOTE: Touch-screen color selecting any flower of the same group, will change all of the same flowers, in that group. If roses are available in red, pink, and white (for example) then touching any rose in your main floral arrangement image will color-change all roses to each available color instantly, each time you touch the screen. This is especially prevalent for users/players using tablet devices.

  • Players may decide to modify an existing virtual game flower arrangement from the app's library of pre-designed compositions.
  • Players can start with just an empty vase. Then have fun building their own arrangement from scratch by adding Primary Flowers, Secondary Flowers, Complementary and so on.
  • Users/players can learn about the meaning of specific flowers and colors, including respective birth flowers with InstaFlorist's tutorial feature.
  • Do some flowers only go in some groups? Yes, our design rule protocol prevents the player from using "Leatherleaf" as a Primary Flower or using long-stem roses in a short "bubble bowl vase" style arrangement for example.
  • What does the invisible embedded grid do? The embedded virtual grid codes and identifies each flower's position perfectly... so the user/player can be an amazing virtual florist extraordinaire!
  • What combinations can you come up with? It's up to your imagination!

WHAT WILL WE DO WITH THE FUNDS?

Finish full BETA development of our multi-patented mobile game app on the iOS (web-based) platform and Android's OS platform, with our team of programmers and designers in Silicon Valley, CA. We will continue to work closely with our crew of accredited master floral designers, photographers and graphic engineers in our floral symposium and digital photo studio facility in the East Bay, CA.

Technical Overview:

  • Hardware/software requirements
  • Performance analysis
  • High-level design stage
  • Detailed design stage
  • Code and test iOS/Android OS applications
  • Perform user and system tests
  • Perform initial integration tests
  • Begin performance tests
  • Go to production
  • Launch iOS/Android OS versions publicly and in The App Store (April 2013)

Phase 1. Perform Project Analysis: Detail the app's project specifications, requirements and scope of its functions and features. (COMPLETED)

Phase 2. Ancillary Software and Requirement Gathering: Gather technical requirements for the iOS platform (web-based) confirm all necessary functions. (COMPLETED)

Phase 3. Project Management: Assemble and designate development team's roles, assigning tasks to designers and programmers. Assign individual roles, then strategize and prioritize executable tasks for development. (STARTED)

Phase 4. App Development: Actual development of the BETA FULL-VERSION application begins. Closely analyze and monitor the developmental phase. Construct all required functions and app features according to the project analysis order. (PENDING)

Phase 5. Testing: Rigorous application testing is performed to ensure a bug-free, perfectly functioning application is delivered to the end user with 100% interactive quality and efficiency, and extract 3D images as well as use 360 degree roto-scanning technology to program each flower arrangement's stem values and detailed characteristics into the app. (PENDING)

ABOUT US:

My mom and I are both from Oakland, CA and the creators of our mobile game app InstaFlorist. We are fans of Kickstarter, creativity, art, technology and all things having to do with mobile game apps. My formal background is in Marketing and Software, while hers is in Fine Arts, Floral and Wedding Design. Some years ago, she and I had an idea for a virtual floral game. We began writing all of the fun ideas that we wanted to include into the program. We really liked the idea of building a game app that allowed the user to be able to play with different elements of a virtual bouquet instantly like: flower types, styles, colors or the vases, then view the unlimited compositions that resulted and even randomly spin different combinations. Players could even be able to enter their virtual masterpiece creations into virtual flower shows, against other players for points and rankings!

We have completed the alpha stage flash demo version of our game app, as well as the intensive specification and detailed features and functions packet and are now graciously hoping for funding to complete the final completed beta version of our dream project! It is a pleasure and privilege to introduce our InstaFlorist multi-patented game app to Kickstarter and its awesome community. We are genuinely grateful for everyone's support and encouragement. Thanks Again! Carlo & Elizabeth

Risks and challenges

We can expect that the main issues we will face in completing full-beta version of the InstaFlorist mobile game app is the great detail involved with so many design game possibilities and scenarios. It is a genuinely complex and aesthetically detailed game whereupon first order logic and appropriate floral design rule compositions must be administered according to the actual design rules of professional accredited floral design. However, we have already achieved these design rule requirements and contingencies having successfully developed our initial alpha flash demo and proof of concept versions. We have likewise completed our technical specifications sheet, including the game functions and features development plan. We are once again, currently working alongside our team of highly-skilled programmers, designers and florists to monitor every step of quality performance and plan to conduct multiple rigorous tests before launch. And, we likewise plan to post all exciting developments and advancements of InstaFlorist on our Kickstarter profile as they occur.
