Chris (in the same room as!) Stephen Fry at Lovies

The glitterati of digital geek chic were partying at the Lovies in London last week. Including our very own MD; Chris as Splinter won not one but two prestigious Lovie Awards. ‘Lovie of the Year’ Stephen Fry, was honoured in recognition of his innovative, engaged approach to Twitter and personal website. The Lifetime Achievement award went to Professor Heinz Gerhauser who created the MP3.

The Lovies applaud the cream of Europe’s web and interactive design. Splinter were recognised for our Famous People games designed for BBC schools. We were chuffed to have also scooped the People’s choice vote in the Education category, with over 80% of the vote.

In the web category Splinter achieved a bronze award alongside the likes of JK Rowling’s Pottermore, the British Heart Foundation, The Sunday Times and Moshi Monsters sites, Gold went to the London 2012 Olympics and Crome Weblab.

What ho! A Lovie award for Famous People!

Lovie award Famous People

Following on from the recent good news about the BIMA’s, we had some more ace news that the Famous People games we did for BBC Primary History have been awarded a bronze Lovie Award in the Education category. We’re in some esteemed company, judging by the winners list, so massive thanks to the Lovie folks for the award.

And on top of that, there’s a People’s Choice vote, so if you have a spare minute to cast a vote our way, that would be legendary!

Achoo! Splinter get a Flu Jab with Liverpool Community Health!

Gary Andrews LCH Flu Campaign

A recent flu campaign created by Rachael Boden, Sarah Parsons and Kevin McCann from Splinter for Liverpool Community Health NHS Trust (LCH) has gained national coverage from ‘The Drum‘ and ‘Click Liverpool‘.

A fun time was had by the Splinter Team creating the concepts and slogans, and by the end of it we came up with a lovely 50′s style campaign which was made even better when LCH staff bravely volunteered to be photographed for the campaign. Matt from Dupe Creative took brilliant photos for us to use and the results speak for themselves.
