Primary Skigit

Primary Skigit

A Primary skigit is a jet-setter, a leader, a ground-breaker …master of their domain! It’s a persuasive, charismatic skigit that others can’t wait to plug into and the source of every Superskigitt. The Primary skigit creates a lasting impression with the ability to grab viewers and not let go, no matter how hard the try to shake loose.


Plug-in Skigit

The Plug-in skigit is a way for you to connect with other skigits that depict a common thing, idea or theme. It’s a way for you to either start or become part of a group of like-minded skigits. The rule of thumb is, if you like it and endorse it… plug-in and join the group.


Superskigit

Superskigit

The amazing Superskigit! The Primary Skigit appears out of nowhere, suddenly plug-ins start to attach themselves and the Superskigit emerges, a potentially unending train of connected skigits with a Primary at the helm! … a bit much? We don’t think so.
