Prophets creates animated Christmas jumper for Carrefour market
Wednesday, December 21, 2016 —
All unforgettable parties have 2 essential things in common: excellent company and delicious food. Precisely the two things that Prophets is pulling out of the bag on Carrefour market’s festive end-of-year website.
If you want to surprise your friends or family after an unforgettable 2016, simply send them Carrefour market’s animated greeting card by email or on Facebook. The animation – a Prophets technological achievement – will show your own personalised New Year’s message as a moving knitting pattern on cheesy Christmas jumper.
Expert knitting lingo
Samuel Joos, Prophets Lead Developer and knitting expert: “The animation on our Christmas jumper was made entirely in HTML5. We achieved the traditional knitted effect with a number of pixel shaders, similar to how an Instagram filter works.”
In addition to the knitting feature, the festive Carrefour market website www.onvergetelijkefeesten.be also offers a food section with loads of inspiring content: festive recipes paired with the perfect wine and videos on how to present your dish in a delicious way.
Carrefour also had a surprise in store for customers who had sent the animated ecard before the 18th of September. They got a chance to win a Fuji Film Polaroid to capture their unforgettable festive moments in pictures. So this week, 50 lucky ones will find this Instax camera underneath their Christmas tree.
