Sandspiel is a virtual sandbox that lets people of all ages play, paint, and experiment with real-world elements—sand, water, fire, plants, wind, and more. Inspired by sandplay therapy, the natural world, and the early web, Sandspiel offers a gentle sanctuary for psychosomatic expression and healing.
Since February 2022, I’ve been supporting Sandspiel  across product and brand. My work so far has included re-designing the core drawing experience, developing a fun visual identity, and ideating ways for people to program new kinds of cellular automata.
