JCPenney approached me to create an experimental holiday card last month. I came up with this card which displays a simple animated gif animation of snowflakes (with an exuberant typographic message inside). Here is a video showing how it works: http://kellianderson.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/snowflakes.MOV

You need to stop being so insanely good. You're making the rest of us look real real bad. :(.
but seriously. this is awesome. beyond words.
More awesome work Kelli!
Wow! That is awesome! Glad you posted the video of this. Nice work!
This is sweet, but the movie and shot are completely different?
Oh yes, sorry- I will explain in further detail in the post, but basically--- that still shot that you are seeing there shows the backs. The animation window falls on the front side. (The animation print isn't much to look at in a still shot- just looks like noise.)
And thanks for the enthusiasm guys!!
It was really great seeing this in action at your AIGA talk a few nights ago! Also just saw you in the CM screening of Girl Walk :)
Keep up the great work.
Wow! What a clever lady you are Kelli! I love these a lot. Probably will go in to JCPenny just to see them when they come out.
Inventive and well executed! Great job, Kelli.
Thanks Alonzo- I love Tightrope (and the arrows are so damn cool) Thanks for coming to the talk earlier this week. (Sorry I didn't say hi a CM, no coffee yet today so my brain isn't working…)
Matt- they were just an internal-communications thing, so they won't be in the retail store, sadly. The communications department sent these out as their holiday card :)
Sucha great style
Bummer... well... I'll hunt one down!
Matt, I made a similar happy new year card (using animation) email me and I'll send one to you :)
I saw a similar card recently, still brilliant!
Ha- I must have a European doppelganger. The animation technique is a very old idea. But 2011 twas the 'year of the animated gif' (…or something) so it is back in the zeitgeist!
Ah cool, I didn't even know that!
