Giftster is a trusted, free gift registry with over two million members, featured on Forbes, TechCrunch, and The Huffington Post.
My task involved crafting an illustration for the app's share extension and animating it based on the initial sketch. The animation serves as a captivating loading screen, enhancing user engagement and reducing bounce rates.
I designed the illustration using Adobe Illustrator and transferred it to After Effects to initiate the animation process. Reviews and file management were efficiently handled through the Lottie Files Platform, ensuring a smooth collaboration throughout the project.
The result is a 15-second seamless looping animation with three different wrapping paper styles. This variation adds interest and prevents monotony during the 15-second display.
Primo optimizes IT for small to medium businesses, boosting efficiency across applications, devices, personnel, and security.
For their animated logo, I created four versions, refining based on valuable input from the Primo Team. We chose an animation where the logo transforms from 9 triangles into one, resembling a cursor—a nod to our digital essence.
Crafted in Adobe Illustrator and animated in After Effects with selected plugins, we used the Lottie Files Platform for feedback and previews. This ensures easy file management and allows clients to download the animation in various formats or embed it directly on their website or app.
The result? A sleek, seamlessly looping logo animation that serves as a dynamic loader for our website, showcasing our brand while subtly emphasizing our digital focus.
La Haine
Lahaine, a Bavarian fashion brand, seamlessly blends Arabic design with modernity, creating uniquely crafted pieces that embody a culturally enriched style.
My focus was on developing an online store that resonates with Lahaine brand's essence, ensuring customers experience a seamless and enjoyable shopping process.
Inspired by existing clothing designs, I collaborated closely with the La Haine Team to not only meet but exceed their expectations. The website was designed and developed on the Webflow platform, an industry standard.
The website seamlessly combines an elegant appearance with a smooth user experience, reflecting my commitment to quality.
