The original idea

The basic idea was creating a postcard box set product by a series
of illustrations, which had as main reference the nostalgic feeling of a local person living in old Greece. 
Three scenes from ordinary daily routine from a cafe,
a market flea and a barber salon.

About the illustrations

After sketching freehand with ink pen on paper, the illustrations were scanned and coloured in Photoshop, as each illustration has its own palette.

The stickers

Each of the stickers has its own colour palette, matching each own post card.

Making the video

We decided to produce a promo video a day before the release of the product.
The story is that someone wakes up and feels the desire to send a postcard to his favourite person. So, on his way to the post office, he passes a flea market, a barber shop and a cafe, and in all scenes a unique character from each postcard illustration appears animated in every scene. All shootings were done in Pagrati area in Athens, and
 after filming we proceeded to the animation process.

The animation

All characters were animated frame by frame in Toon Boom Harmony. 
The final composting and export was done in Adobe After Effects.

on 10 x 15 cm size / 600gsm Munken Polar by Perrakis paper.
