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.
