Description

Bloom Digital Media is a full service digital agency with a focus on games for health, health promotion, youth development and playful learning. Based on a strong background in strategy, design and youth development we know how to communicate with young stakeholders to create the products and experiences they want and need.

History

From Digital Literacy to Game Design

In 2006 Bloom Digital President Miriam Verburg founded the Digital Literacy Project, a community-based media training program created with support from Heritage Canada and the Government of Quebec. We developed a model of engagement and participation that included university departments and leaders from often isolated community organizations in the planning process each year, so course content, and scheduling suited diverse needs. Following three years deeply immersed in fostering the development of media skills in youth, Miriam was bitten by the gaming bug, and developed an all-consuming passion for the potential of games to help young people explore their capacity for emotional growth, resilience and well-being.

Bloom believes that gaming is an unprecedented opportunity for designers to offer interactive experiences that help people develop a healthy sense of curiosity and compassion for their mental states and personal growth. A game can be a journey, quest, story, or even a mystery: All are fantastic metaphors for the process of growth and change that result in a more resilient and healthy state of mind.
