Alaska company makes Apple's Top 10 list with "Alaskanisms"
Palmer, Alaska— Following last week’s launch of their iOS Sticker Pack, Alaskanisms, Alopex Interaction Design was shocked to wake up last Tuesday to see themselves at #7 on Apple’s Top 10 Paid list.
“I was stunned,” Says Kyle Fox, Director of Alopex. “I woke up to a text from Zane, my illustrator. He had taken a screenshot and at first I thought he had Photoshopped it himself as a joke. It’s a surreal feeling to see something that you produced competing for downloads with companies like Disney—and winning!”
With several hundred downloads in the first 12 hours, the majority of which were in Alaska, there was enough velocity to propel Alaskanisms to the national stage for a few days.
“It’s a testament to the passion and power of the Alaska community. We really didn’t expect to actually break a couple of hundred downloads, let alone make it onto a Top 10 list!”
Alaskanisms is available right now, on the iOS App Store for 99₵. Alopex also encourages artists who are interested in turning their designs into Sticker packs to reach out to them. “Alaska is full of talented artists, and we made Alaskanisms as kind of a proof of concept. Building more sticker sets with different styles is something we would love to do,” says Kyle.
