This fun and relatively simple Ecard greeting for the Holidays was designed in Adobe Illustrator and animated in Adobe Flash for use on websites, in an e-mail campaign and also as video for use on YouTube and other video based social media sites.
A high resolution or resolution independent (vector) print version could also be created so that you printed holiday greeting card matches or supplements your animated or interactive flash holiday card.

If you are on a Flash enabled computer or device you can click on THIS LINK to see the final animation. Since it was completely vector based the file size of the .swf file is very light (58K).


If you are on an iphone or a non-flash environment or device that does not support Adobe flash here is a YouTube video of the animation to give you an idea.
Please bear in mind that the image quality here is compressed and it does not reflect the clarity and high definition of the actual vector art and flash animation.

From the initial conceptual phase coming up with the ‘Fox’ character and evolving the Fox over several iterations, through scribbles and layouts to the final artwork as digital vector files in Adobe Illustrator CS5 I worked closely with the client to establish the a character with the right feel and then later create various poses, stories and comic strips featuring Mister Fox.
