kinder pinguí is a chilled chocolate bar by international food company Ferrero. The product is represented by blue penguin that appears in TV-spots an on the product packaging. MESO Web Scapes was asked to develop an innovative website concept, at a time when the company was not really using their product websites as promotion platforms.
We created a groundbraking website hosting a multiuser world of penguins, complete with chat, edutainment and games for children and parents, which was a very unusual approach for the company.
The style of the website tries to create a charming and playful feeling, with cute little characters, beautiful illustration, with a strong influence by Christopher Fellehner of the renowned illustration team Labor, Frankfurt.
Currently the website design and technology is even adopted for the Russian branch of Ferrero kinder pingui, where it should help to promote the product in the huge Russian market. Go ahead, little Pinguí!
These are characters of the penguins we developed for use on the kinder pinguí website
