Peanut-ize Me

I thought this assignment was pretty entertaining for my Strategic Presentation class. We used the Peanutize Me website to create a Peanuts-style avatar for ourselves. The purpose of Peanutize Me is to serve as an advertisement for the latest Peanuts movie to release in 2015. The avatar creator allows the user to cycle through various choices for things like skin color, hair style and eye or mouth shape to tailor the Peanuts character to your liking, more or less. It’s a funny little app that allows you to export your character as either a profile picture or desktop wallpaper size to use. The layout of the site and the avatar creator is extremely simple and straightforward, with a simple but effective design scheme. While the choices for the physical features of the avatar were pretty in depth, I felt like the selection for clothes and other items for the character were limited. I would have liked to see some sort of music-related theme to go with the character (Schroeder had the piano, right?) but overall I thought the app was pretty cool. It allows the user to express their own creativity through the eyes of a great artist like Charles M. Schultz, who created a timeless masterpiece in Peanuts. View my Peanuts counterpart below:
