Acart Communications: Agency Christmas Card, The Tale of the Christmas Creep

URL: http://www.acart.com/creep
In French: http://www.acart.com/peste

This online Christmas tale is about the dangers of letting Christmas marketing overwhelm the holidays and observances of autumn. The story is basically "Dr. Seuss meets Dr. Frankenstein" as an adman accidentally creates a monster that threatens Thanksgiving, Halloween, and Remembrance (veterans') Day. To tell it online, we used a combination of illustration and parallax scrolling.
