5 star wins yahoo award

Filed under: animation, character design, illustration, multimedia — jonbirch @ 1:15 am


great news for me and mike phillips of ‘paperhorse’, the sites designer (i provided character design and the sites animations).
in 2006 this site was given five stars in ‘internet user’ magazine… now it has won the ‘yahoo, website find of the year’ in it’s category.
me and mike are dead chuffed! the client, the charity ‘send a cow’, as you can imagine, are stoked!
you can vote this website ‘peoples choice’ by going to and clicking the link at the top of the page.
this site is a great example of keeping the characters really simple. budget limitations and time constraints have lead to the character designs and animations being minimal and direct. but, i hope you will agree, this has in no way reduced the impact and value of experiencing the site. infact, the site probarbly works all the better for this simple approach.
see what you think.
