At Anaga, my studio for the last 15 years, we're fans of retro gaming and came up with the idea to create an open-source pixel art creation app. Unlike existing ones, it wouldn't be limited to a single device or operating system.

In this project, I was responsible for designing and building an interface that adapts to all types of devices and screen formats, and creating a complete library of icons in pixel art style. I aimed to blend the ease of use and cleanliness of a modern interface with a retro aesthetic.

We made the app using Nuxt3 and vanilla CSS. I translated the designs into code and programmed many of the user interface interactions. I also handled localization and the creation of sample art. A challenging aspect was considering the different ways to interact with the app: keyboard and mouse, or touch screen with gestures and stylus.

The next steps will be to create a cloud hosting service and develop the animation module.
