In 1991, the computer game SkiFree was released by Microsoft along with the operating system Windows 3.0a.

The winning idea came to light when Sandy was laying down in bed following a brainstorm session. She switched on the light, ran into the studio, and began to sketch out a full body-height owl graphic that stretched over the size of the two skis. Skiers will clip their ski boots into the Owls’ sharp claws and carve through the fresh powder on the mountains.PellveticaView full article at Pellvetica.com →
