Christmas Illustrations and Animation

I have recently been working on Christmas illustrations and animation. I worked with Adobe Illustrator to illustrate a smiling reindeer, snowy background and a sleigh. I then worked with After Effects to combine this and used the position tool to move the objects around. I finalised the piece with some Christmas themed music. This was for APC Pure and their products are falling from the sleigh. Below shows the outcome to one of my first professional animations.


For my first University project we was given the brief “TRANSLATE”. This could be for a place, a celebration, a campaign, anything that could communicate a place, persons or companies manifesto. I found it really hard to think of who my Manifesto could be for as I was unsure as to what my own was. I decided to do the brief for Hyde which is a local community near by where I live. I decided to create a piece of design to make people want to come back to Hyde as it was once well known for the markets. I decided to create the campaign that Hyde was bringing the well known markets back and used the following manifesto: FREE PARKING FOR ALL, COMMIT TO THE MARKET, LESS SURFING MORE SOCIALISING and FOOD & ENTERTAINMENT {MORE THAN} FACEBOOK.
