Here’s a little video we cooked up at imago for this holiday season. May the new year bring you tons of inspiration, creative work, satisfied clients and just enough off time in between.


The video has been created entirely in After Effects, with just the tree shape drawn and imported from Illustrator. It has been designed and animated using exclusively AE’s shape layers and ended up as a mere 700K file (as opposed to typical project taking up dozens of gigabytes of data).

It also was a speedrun – it took just under 8 hours to create (thank you TV for the boring re-runs forcing us to get off the couch).

Concept & Design: Cigdem Keresteci
Design & Animation: Quba Michalski
Music: Doctor Octoroc

The video is also available for download in 720p MP4 format. You can also view it at imago site, Vimeo and YouTube.
