Happy - A Challenge with Stefan Sagmeister

This challenge closed almost 5 years ago.

The Challenge

A collaboration with Stefan Sagmeister one of the world’s most creative and inspiring designers.

Rate yourself on a scale from 1-10 (1 being seriously depressed, 10 being the happiest) and then create self-portrait expressing that state.

The portrait must follow the template here, including its 16:9 landscape format. Specifically for the animation to work the face needs to fit within the area and essentially be the same size as the face in the template.

We suggest you download the template and build on top of it

PLS NO WORK NOT BASED ON THE TEMPLATE – INCLUDING 16:9 AND PLS INCLUDE A RATING OF YOUR HAPPINESS FROM 1-10. CLOSER TO THE TEMPLATE MORE LIKELY TO BE PART OF THE FINAL ANIMATION

Any artistic medium/technique is allowed but please use the template! Here is an example.

Stefan and team will be animating the best of these results into a sequence for inclusion in his upcoming “Happy Film”.
