The domestic appliance manufacturer, Zanussi, is offering Internet

designers the chance to show off their work online in a virtual gallery

located on its soon-to-be-launched site.



The interactive gallery, in keeping with Zanussi’s ‘appliance of

science’ slogan, will feature 16 of the best European examples of

design, animation, games and the use of sound on the Internet.



Each piece of work will be displayed for a month and the company is

hoping that young designers and students will make it a focal point on

the World Wide Web for displaying and viewing next-generation Internet

technology.



The site, developed for Zanussi by the new-media outfit, DNA

Communications, launches on 1 September. It will also feature both

customer service and new product information from the company.



Visitors to the site will be asked to rate the work in the gallery, and

the most popular will be awarded a pounds 1,000 prize.



Chris Perry, marketing director of DNA, said: ‘The site allows us to

help position Zanussi as the owner of a unique content that shows the

best work being developed on the Net. If you want to see animation or

play online games, this will be the place to come.’
