Snowflake generator

Snowflake generator

To celebrate the festivities and the turning of the year, we looked to the skies for inspiration. By utilising some clever coding and a little vector elbow grease we created a unique Snowflake generator – helping us send personalised good wishes to friends the world over.

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse – if only that was true. At Oakwood we have been working smarter than ever and the results are evident. In celebration of the season we aimed to champion the individuality of our clients, our work, and ourselves.

Although we may not all be seeing snow this year – the idea of creating an individual representation of everyone we know seemed an appealing yet initially insurmountable task for the run up to Christmas.

We found the solution to creating a vast abundance of unique flakes was in splitting them into segment pieces. By creating 32 inner, 32 middle, and 32 outer sections of a snowflake we could produce 32,768 unique flake combinations.

With the idea approved and the Snowflake pieces drawn out, the only task left was for our Digital team to iron out an algorithm to take an inputted name and output a unique snowflake. I won’t bore you with those details, but I feel the proof is in the pudding.

With compliments, from your friends at Oakwood.
