Postmanaut Snapchat/Twitch Filter + Zoom Backgrounds

During my recent Creative Exploration Days at Postman I decided to explore making animated assets that could be used in Zoom. With more people than ever working from home and meeting online I thought it was a great opportunity to expand our branded assets.

I made two Snapchat filters that can be used in Zoom, Twitch and the native Snapchat app. I also made two animated, looping backgrounds to be used as moving backgrounds in Zoom. Below are instructions for how to access and use them.
