Telling their story through play: Poki wins Red Dot Design Award
Amsterdam, The Netherlands - August 17th, 2018
Poki is delighted to announce today that they have been awarded the prestigious Red Dot Design Award for Communication Design 2018 for their new, playful company site. Winning over a 24-member jury and competing alongside thousands of projects from around the world, the Red Dot Design Award is presented to projects that display the highest levels of design quality and creative achievement.
As an online platform for games, “playful” is in Poki’s DNA. But beyond that, they’re on a mission to create the ultimate online playground to serve players, game developers, and advertisers alike. So the question arose: how to tell Poki’s story and communicate this playfulness to such a mixed audience?
The result is a site that fuses the concept of a company website with a web game. It’s a truly playful touchpoint that’s also smart, friendly, and a little funky – just like Poki.
The site is the product of a successful collaboration between Poki’s design strategists, game tech engineers, and agencies Resoluut (NL) and Evermade (FI).
Time to play, friends!
