Animated Holiday Card with Company Logo

A really fun project was this animated Holday Greeting card to be sent to the customers of my commissioning client.

The briefing required a nice, hand-drawn cozy looking winter scene. We opted for an inviting winter chalet in the woods surrounded by snow covered trees and featuring the AN2V logo.

The artwork was painted on an iPad Pro M1 in Procreate 5 software and rendered as a timelapse video.
The video was converted to an animated GIF so that it could be used and viewed in e-mails directly on all devices.

The client was delighted with the final result and I was quite pleased with it also.
