A Home for I-dudette and I-dog

November 21, 2006

Hurrah! Proud to announce that I-dudette and I-dog are adopted by Kelley Parks from Call Federal Credit Union.  I-dude now has some company. CFCU has great plans with the character I-dude. Today i saw some presentation stuff and really liked what i saw. I-dude will come to life and develop into his own world. Can’t wait to see it!

Meet I-dog .. the friendly dog

November 17, 2006

Alright! I-dude finaly dared to look over the hedge to see if I-dudette was home and yes .. she was … he didn’t see her dog anywhere, so I-dude walked into her garden and up to her house to finaly ask her to go out with him on friday night … lucky for him the dog was inside when she opened the door … so his pants is still in one piece. She invited I-dude inside her house and they talked a bit … when suddenly the dog appeared … 8-( … as soon as I-dude saw him he wanted to get out … but … he could resist … the dog looked at him for a while and then sat down next to his feet  … ooh … that seems to be okay he must have thought … well … I-dude thinks it will take some time before the dogs becomes his friend … but so far so good … I-dudette and I-dude will go out for the first time … we’ll see what happens …

Here’s the picture from I-dog … the friendly dog …

I-dog … The friendly dog …

Meet … I-dudette, I-dude’s next door girlfriend.

November 17, 2006

Haai there, let me introduce I-dude’s new girlfriend to you .. Her name is I-dudette … at least untill he found a good name for her or a place in his home. I-dudette is the great looking girlfriend from next door. Lived next to here for quite a while already, but I-dude never dared to look over the hedge and talk to her … untill now … He asked her out .. and she said yes … Great! … He hesitated a long while to walk over to her house and ask her … she has a dog you know … a friendly dog once you know him .. but before that … he rips your pants in a minute when you walk into their garden. Not something he wanted to try … untill now … 😀

So here she is  … I-Dudette!

 I-dudette .. I-dude’s girlfriend from next door.

Hope you like her … i know I-dude does … 😀

After the unexpected succes of the project for Kelley Parks from Call Federal Credit Union my creative fluids kept streaming in my blood … and I couldn’t stop thinking how nice it would be if I-dude gets a family … so … after hours of designing … the family has arrived. I-dude will be acompanied by I-dudette en I-dog.

Pictures will follow soon! 

Meet Red’s New Friend : I-dude

November 10, 2006

Today we finished the new deal with good results!

Like i told, we were approached by the American Company … Call Federal Credit Union

Kelley Parks, Vice President Marketing & Business Development from Call Federal Credit Union asked me to make a new design for their website, collateral material, advertising and promotion on billboards, TV, etc.
After several proofs we finished the design … the character is called “I-dude” as long as CFCU doesn’t have a real name for him.

“I-dude”  Character for Call Federal Credit Union

In a reaction on the final design, Kelley Parks said “We are very excited about “i dude”.  We plan on using him in lots of ways at the credit union.  We’re going to have someone dress like “i dude” and go into the community.  We will have him animated on our website and possibly incorporate him into our image somehow.  Its very exciting and I’ll keep you posted on the progress.  Right now we are still calling him “i dude”, but he is a representation of our inner voice and the good that is inside of us.  We will use him to empower people to do the right thing.  He’ll be responsible for sayings like “i can do anything!”  and “i can be anything”  Your little character will do lots of good in this world.”

I think “I-dude” will have found a good home at CFCU and i am looking forward to see him devellop into his world.
The cooperation with Kelley was real nice and hopefully our project will lead to another in the future.
Thanks Kelley!

Regards, Red and Eric.

Red meets a New Friend

Haai Again, some Exciting News to share!
As I … and Eric of course … were working our  butts off, we were approached by an American company … just lets call them CU for now … telling us that they very much liked my Character … 😀 and they kindly asked if I was for sale …  For Sale … hmmm … Before Eric could answer that question i wrote a “NO” in the returned mail … how on Earth could i leave Eric … my creator, designer, companion, my travelguide around the internet … I talked the idea out of Eric’s head .. (easy to do … ) So, we kindly wrote back a polite “No”, but we offered to create a new character, specificly designed for that company … they accepted our offer and we are now in the process of designing a new character!
 Boy, this is fun to do! As Eric can’t do it alone, i come up with some ideas and Eric puts them on the drawing board. We have send out a first proof today .. hopefully they like it 😀

 We’ll keep you posted!
