Project Description

Connected Christmas

For several years, I created whimsical Christmas illustrations showing a high-tech Santa operation using tongue-in-cheek humor that references the marketing jargon of the tech world. The illustrations were used as Christmas cards and posters for FW.

For Christmas 2012, I depicted Santa’s North Pole Network Operations Center with data visualizations of Naughty/Nice metrics and forecasting future trends in child behavior. Out in the field, the Elves are equipped with mobile devices to monitor hot cocoa pumps and keep connected with Santa.

The illustration was created and rendered in 3D with post-rendering adjustments in Photoshop. I used InDesign for the layout and printed the image as a folded 5×7 card as well as a framed poster.
