Over the past couple years, I've had the pleasure of working with Indigo Slate on several Microsoft projects, and even more specifically Microsoft Teams. The Teams brand is really fun to work with since there is a lot of creative freedom to make content. Several of my favorite pieces are from 2021 when I was tasked with creating 3 different backgrounds for Team's holiday campaign. The headline piece was for Team's Together Mode where 5+ people in a video chat could come together in holiday decor.
One of the biggest challenges was creating something that said Winter Holidays, without focusing on any specific holiday. Since it's a season of giving around the world, we started with a few different themes of packages, but quickly landing on a greeting card design.
The team created illustrator mock-ups in Illustrator that I took into Cinema 4d to extrude the artwork into foam-like cutouts
