A Festive Creation: An Animated Holiday Card to Remember

As we celebrate the holiday season, I’m excited to share with you a project that truly captures the spirit of joy and togetherness. I had the distinct pleasure of working once again with AN2V, the Association Nationale de la Vidéoprotection. Established in 2004 by Dominique LEGRAND, AN2V stands as the foremost authority on videosurveillance and videoprotection in France. Their commitment to facilitating the exchange of experiences in the field of security technology is both impressive and inspiring. AN2V’s unique approach, bridging the needs of public and private users with the expertise of security technology companies, sets them apart as true innovators in their field.

Now, let me take you on a journey into the heart of the holiday season. I am delighted to introduce you to an elegant and captivating animated holiday card I had the pleasure of bringing to life. This enchanting card features the newly designed 3D version of AN2V’s logo, representing the evolution of their visual identity, which I had previously crafted for the client. Picture a serene winter night, where a charming chalet stands amidst a blanket of snow, surrounded by towering pine trees. Warm light spills from the chalet’s windows, casting a gentle glow on the pristine snow below. In the foreground, a beautifully adorned Christmas tree adds a touch of festive magic, while a welcoming wreath graces the chalet’s door. AN2V’s logo rests gracefully in the snow, bathed in the soft radiance of the holiday season. What sets this animated card apart is its timelapse transformation, evolving from intricate black lines into a vibrant, heartwarming scene that captures the essence of the season.

As a freelance illustrator, graphic designer, and animator, I specialize in crafting custom explainer videos and holiday greeting cards that add a personal touch to your celebrations. Whether it’s for your company, work team, club, or family, I can create unique and memorable pieces tailored to your specific needs. With a keen eye for detail and a passion for artistic expression, I’m dedicated to making your vision come to life. Additionally, if you’re looking to incorporate your logo or even recognizable portraits of people based on photographs, it’s no problem at all. These can be seamlessly integrated into static designs or brought to life in captivating videos, or we can create both at the same time. The possibilities are endless, from classic printed cards to festive wrapping paper and innovative marketing gifts. I can transform your holiday greetings into memorable, creative expressions, suitable for sharing on social media and the web, ensuring your holiday messages shine bright in the digital age
