Liz Pichon is the author of the best selling Tom Gates series which has sold over a million books in the UK and is translated into 36 languages.
An illustrator and children's writer, Liz Pichon is not only the creator of the hugely successful Tom Gates books, and winner of multiple awards including the Blue Peter Book Award (Best Story), and the Roald Dahl Funny Prize (7–14 years), she also has an impressive back catalogue of children's books titles.
We were delighted when she approached Eighth Day to design and build her new website that will act as a showcase for all her work, and will sit alongside the official Tom Gates site, produced by her publishers, Scholastic.
The project was something very different for us and gave us the perfect opportunity to embrace our inner Tom Gates, doodler extraordinaire, and create a super-fun, colourful website with custom animations based on Liz’s drawings. Check out the "impressive homework button" which when pressed changes the screen to appear like you're hard at work!
We are currently having great fun implementing sound to the website. Watch this space.
