NOLS is the National Outdoor Leadership School, an institution teaching leadership skills in the outdoors, and fostering stewardship of natural resources in students.
The request for this project was to create fun, animated .gif ads for Outside Magazine Online, inviting people to learn more about upcoming courses, using pre-written copy and classic NOLS "field note" style drawings in contrast with photographs. For this assignment, I created the fancy tent and camper drawing, designed the layout, and animated all of the ads shown below. No looping was allowed on Outside Magazine Online, so the delivered files repeated their loop a few times and then stopped on the last slide. For the purposes of this portfolio, the ads below loop infinitely.
