Watch the HAKS 2017 Holiday Animation

The temperature is dropping and the chatter of what gifts people will be getting their loved ones is on the rise. This, of course, can only mean one thing… it’s the Holiday season! In case you missed it, last Friday we unveiled a special animated video over on our YouTube channel and Facebook page. This year, we really wanted to create something special to show appreciation to our clients and HAKS employees. The result was our spin on the traditional “Holiday Card”. In conjunction with Vedia, we decided to use our very own New York City as inspiration for the backdrop of our latest video.
