Bluemarker was started 18 years ago by graphic designer Janette Afsharian.  Through collaborating with colleagues and discovering new talent Bluemarker has worked on over 150 projects that include websites, games, apps, Leapster, DS and more.  Over the last 5 years Bluemarker’s projects have been nominated and won awards of excellence.


Our work extends across non-profit, independent, corporate, artistic, and extensively in children’s digital properties. Thanks to our clients like PBS Kids, Scholastic, and Little Brown, and Company,  projects from The Muppets, iSpy, Bones, and Harry Potter to Cyberchase and Space Racers, have been on our desktops. We’re also venturing into original content development kicking it off with our hit kid’s app Dino-Store.


Small, medium, or large projects Bluemarker is interested to hear about it.  You can text, call, or email Janette to talk potential ideas, budget, and schedule.  If your project appears to be a good fit for Bluemarker, planning can get started.  We are also happy to give you recommendations to others if you need something unique and we know that right person for you.   Email, text or call 917-841-7347.


We’ve done a lot of work for amazing companies but when we set out to do our own content we could only have dreamed of a reaction like this one: “I am a Speech Language Pathologist working in a school in Oregon. I just wanted to tell you we love your Dino Store story app. All of my students love it, especially one 7 year old student with autism. Your story has helped to open up his world. He came to me not talking or interacting very much (except for screaming) and one day I just turned on your app for him thinking he wouldn’t pay very much attention to it. It was his first “story” that he connected with and because of your app he now connects with me and he is making progress with his communication skills. He especially loves the baby dinosaur flushing the toilet. Thanks so much for creating it and I just wanted to let you know how much you have impacted the life of a child.”

We are now applying for grants to expand our original content apps. If you are interested in helping us expand through funding, writing proposals, or providing educational insights contact us at design@bluemarker.com
