Mojave Interactive Strikes Gold At The 8th Annual Horizon Awards Competition.

Mojave Interactive was honored with two awards at the 8th Annual Horizon Interactive Awards competition, including a Gold Award in the E-commerce/Shopping category for "The Ungiftables" CafePress campaign. "The Ungiftables" also took home the Silver Award in the Flash category.

Online PR News – 21-May-2009 – – 'The Ungiftables' ( introduces the world to seven humorous characters who should be immediately recognizable to anyone who’s shopped for gifts. They are your critical mother-in-law, an emo nephew, or that nosy neighbor who are seemingly impossible to find the perfect gift for. When visiting the site, users can interact with these characters, who come to life with quips and comments that often echo with 'I’ve heard that before' familiarity.

Customers use a simple slider bar to answer questions about their giftee, and then navigate through a number of gift suggestions. The site was built to highlight that when it comes to shopping for the tough-to-please people in your life, CafePress has the perfect gift for any ungiftable.

"We wanted to cut through the noise of the cookie-cutter gift lists that come out every holiday and never seem to help," said Robert Gourley, Creative Director at Mojave Interactive. "Our goal was to encourage pass-along in a crowded and competitive space. The bottom line is, it’s tough to get noticed around the holidays and we needed to stand out and deliver the brand message. Which is exactly what ‘The Ungiftables’ did."
