M+M Mobile Entertainment is a a collaboration between Malichansouk Kouanchao and her husband Mike Davis. The two designers began developing mobile applications which would both entertain and educate. Our first application, Mighty Match, is a classic memory game built with Mike's illustrations and original theme music, perfect for kids and their design-enthusiast parents. We have teamed up with the incredibly talented programmer Joe Beuckman to continue developing several new applications which will allow users of all ages to explore and experiment with music and art and much more.
Malichansouk (Mali) Kouanchao is a designer and artist born in Savannakhet Laos and living in Minneapolis, MN. Specializing in user experience design for web and mobile platforms, Mali has worked on numerous online projects for U.S. Bank, The University of Minnesota, and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota. As a fine artist, Mali has exhibited her paintings and installations in several galleries and museums across the country and has been the recipient of several artist grants including the Bush Artist Fellowship in 2010 and the Jerome Travel Grant in 1999/2003. Her childhood in Laos is the basis of a children's book, Mali Under The Night Sky, written and illustrated by Youme Landowne and published by Cinco Puntos Press in 2010.
