Animax just helped Healthy Lifestyle Choices with a creative design and character development initiative.  We developed a whole new cast of characters, a story bible and other assets that the non-profit will use to help empower youth with the knowledge and skills practice to make healthy choices for a lifetime.  In the coming weeks, the new characters will start being integrated into their nationally distributed curriculum materials.  HLC’s aims are to address issues that are currently getting a lot of media attention – everything from conflict resolution to bullying to healthy eating and exercise to substance abuse.

It’s always good when Animax gets to help good.

As even Hitachi, puts it “Today’s IT infrastructure can be a complex and often accidental architecture made up of servers, switches and storage devices from multiple vendors.”  Animax just helped to make it a little more understandable in a series of animated videos.

betty-white-smokey-bear

Animax has been working with the Ad Council for the past few months on the social media campaign for the wildfire prevention icon, Smokey Bear.  In just a few months, we’ve helped Smokey double his Twitter following, increase his Facebook fans by 50% and double views on his dedicated YouTube channel.  Along the way we had some nice mentions about the social media effort itself.

It’s been helpful to have some nice press-worthy events to promote like the big one today.  Emmy-winning actress, comedienne, and animal-lover, Betty White, became an honorary Forest Ranger.  Probably the highest point for her in a year where she’s been riding the highs of SNL, Facebook stardom and all the other well-deserved accolades.

Overall it’s gone so swell, that we’re staying on board for awhile more.  Go Team Smokey, Go!

UC and Crohns

Animax helped Starlight with a front-end and back-end update to the UC and Crohn’s site.  The site helps teens better understand the physical, social, and emotional implications of having the diseases which can be pretty rough to live with.

Sometimes Animax clients are a little shy and don’t want us talking about our work with them. So let’s just say we worked on another popular kids virtual world recently developing new features for it.  We also worked on an iPad app for kids.  Kids play with the “darndest” things these days.
