Ben is the 3en Network robot designed to promote a mailing system, which unfortunately never got off the ground but I couldn’t miss the opportunity to talk about Ben because he’s just so cool.
Ben was designed as an icon and a maskot for the 3en Network to show different positions in accordance with the different areas, functions and tools the original mailing system was to perform.
He’s a little bit Wallee in essence but with a twist of his own personality. His antenna lifts and swirls and flashes when he gets excited about sending out mail, signalling the mail is on the way. His secret hideaway revealer gathers up junk mail and gives him a nice feast (as we all get lots of junk mail). His wings mean he can fly around in speed, delivering your mail as fast as he can. And finally his glowing warning band to show when there is an alert.
This little guy was a delight to create, always liked him, just a shame he’s not out in the world, saving, sending and giving joy into peoples mail box.
