Holiday card I created for Skookum Digital Works using animated SVG. CSS only. Illustration by the fabulous Mel Shields.

The scene represents North Carolina's varied landscape, from the mountains to the sea with the Charlotte skyline in the middle.


  1. very good design work! love it.

  2. What software did you use to create this?

  3. @runamuk0 Mel Shields created the vector drawing in Illustrator. I exported it as an SVG and hand-coded the animation. The techniques I used were inspired by Rachel Nabors' presentation about creating an animated HTML5/CSS3 music video. Definitely check it out if you haven't!
