Holiday Card "Thanksgiving"

Another one for American Greetings. This time I designed everything and storyboarded the action. We went through a few options with the style (see below) until we finally settled on the Retro 50s kind of feel. I think they made the right choice.


The animation was handled expertly by Heather Dunn who did a great job capturing the whole feel of the piece. Go check out her stuff.

EDIT: The link is working now hope you enjoy!

  11. Hello,
    When I design custom invitations, I offer to design custom postage for my clients to complete the look of their invitation package. The party starts when the guests open their invitations, so setting the tone of the party with the invitation is important. But even before the envelope is opened, the first impression the guest has of the invitation is what’s on the outside.
