Animated eCard

eCard for the bored worker

After a long week of work, people are often plagued with ennui (at least, I know I am), so I wanted to create an e-card for co-workers looking to cut loose. The GIF is a generic party invitation with the obvious phrase, but the contrast between the smiley’s initial appearance and subsequent excited face is supposed to represent a transition from slightly bored to pretty stoked. The transition from day to night translates to an end-of-day, “it’s Friday” mood. While shifting the backgrounds was a new experience for me, animating the smiley with individual frames was the most fun – I wanted the facial expression change to seem natural, after all.
