Age is Just a Number! Part Deux

Friday, February 28th, 2014

We’re very pleased to announce that we’ve expanded our age-specific range!

Our new designs have been introduced to offer our members more than one option for each age group up to the age of ten, featuring animals and colour schemes to appeal to girls and boys.

For children celebrating their fifth birthday, Katie’s Cards offers a dinosaur themed ecard where different species bob to the music before a big ‘5’ appears in the centre of the frame. Alternatively, senders can choose a design of jumping pigs which is accompanied by a big pink ‘5’ to say ‘Happy Birthday’.

We wanted to create at least two options for each age, one which used colours and animals that might be more popular with boys and another that might be preferred by girls. After the popularity of our pink and blue versions of the Cake Game ecard, we thought it would be a good idea to expand our age-specific range in this way.

The Cake Game is an existing interactive ecard from our Birthday category. The platform game involves triggering booby traps to stop the attacking cake monsters attempting to get their hands on the birthday cake. ‘Attack of the Cake Munchers’ has also featured on GameNet where it has achieved over a million plays.

After a few weeks story-boarding and animating, the result gave us designs that are quite versatile. They’re not necessarily just meant for either girls or boys but they achieve what we set out to do – which is offer greater variety for our members to send on that all important milestone birthday.

Check out our other age designs featuring mischievous monkeys and bonny bunnies, plus more in our birthday ecard category.

 

Age is Just a Number

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

When birthdays are just around the corner, kids love telling anyone who’ll listen how old they are.

And although this changes ever so slightly as we get older, we want to share in the excitement of your little one’s milestone birthday with the introduction of our age-specific range of ecards for children.

If you’ve been following our blog, you might recall when announced the introduction of this new selection and the sneak previews and sketches we uploaded during the design process.

Well, we’re very pleased to announce that this range is now up and running in the birthday ecard category and available for members to preview and send.

Take look at the third in our range of age specific ecards which uses simple shapes and block colours for the greeting, as well as a catchy soundtrack:

The ‘3rd Birthday Fish’ ecard features a school of brightly coloured fish as they swim into frame, letting out air bubbles as they go. One of the bubbles contains the number three, which grows in size to create part of the ‘Happy Birthday’ message.

Since added, the age-specific range for children is already proving popular and we’re now looking to extend this range to cover ‘special age’ ecards for both teenagers and adults in the very near future…

…Meaning, soon there will be no escape from those annual reminders of just how old we’re all getting!

Until then, we hope you enjoy taking a look at the new designs.
