Behind the Scenes

A colleague of mine embarked on a business endeavor to grow an app for simplifying the gift-giving process. In the end, the project was abandoned, but I still had a blast creating this animated video to inform people about the app and its features. I hired Sarah McVane to design characters and help me get the illustrations started and she did an amazing job!


As with most projects, I like to begin with rough storyboards to get a sense of the story progression. Once that is locked in and the client is happy, I move on to full designs.
