The Igloo product offers 11 Sky channels and video-on-demand without the need for a contract. Instead customers choose from a 30-day ‘channel pack.’

Rather then focus on the hardware box, which delivers content, Interbrand Australia creative director Mike Rigby says ‘our idea was to create a new species of creatures called Igloo, who are eager to breathe new life into homes across New Zealand. They love to entertain and even speak their own language (Iglish).’

Rigby, who led the project with Interbrand creative director Chris Maclean, says the Igloo characters ‘dress-up’ as on-screen personalities and by speaking Iglish – which consists of any word with a double O’’ in it – evocate a verbal identity for the brand, which is ‘witty irreverent and distinctly Kiwi.’

Igloo creatures have been designed to entertain, explain package options ‘and help to make the set-up process easy and fun’ says Rigby.
