New York, NY â€“ March 14, 2007 – Raketu Communications Inc., the global Internet communications, information and entertainment company, today announced it has partnered with Emmy nominated animator John K., co-creator of The Ren & Stimpy Show, to develop the Raketu family. Based around a futuristic cartoon character called Raketeena, John K. worked with the marketing team to develop a cartoon sitcom family that showcases and explains the benefits of Raketu’s products and services, including voice over IP (VoIP) calling, ipTV, mobile VoIP, and IM/SMS.
“We have a unique position in the marketplace today in that we deliver multiple web-based communications and entertainment products from a single application,” said Greg Parker, president and CEO of Raketu. “The creative challenge was to showcase and communicate our broad service offering in a way that was easily accessible to consumers. John has helped us through animated characters to dramatize key elements of our product offering explaining themin a fun and entertaining way.”
“I have been hunting for a forward looking sponsor to work with for years,” said animator John K. “I have always wanted to work directly with a sponsor to produce my cartoons and have my stars pitch their products. This was the model that built television but has since been abandoned. The Internet is the wild frontier of communication and entertainment so I took my quest there Raketu is all about pioneering new and better ways to get and share information. I have worked with Raketu on giving them an image and personality worthy of their product and it has been a fantastically creative and fun experience.”
