April Showers Bring May Flowers!

April showers bring May flowers…and an all-new edition of our newsletter. We are excited to recap all the creative content we made and shared throughout the spring. As always, we would like to thank our clients and business partners for their endless support and flexibility.


Adopt Don’t Shop

April is a big month for celebrating our furry friends! Many members of our team at Bare Tree Media have adopted pets, and we wanted to take the time this month to encourage our audience to support local animal shelters and shelter pets. In keeping with our mission of supporting animal welfare, we created an official GIPHY page for the City of Boston Animal Care and Control Shelter and designed custom GIFS to promote pet adoption and care. Adopting from shelters provides all types of deserving pets with a safe and loving home. Our design intern, Wendy, created a special animated sticker pack for the occasion. Check them out and use them for yourself!

In addition, one of our AR designers, Wayne, created a Snapchat lens you can use on your own adopted pet! This lens uses machine learning to detect the faces of dogs and cats—even hamsters and then applies the animations. We were so thrilled to see many of our Instagram and Snapchat users try this lens.








In case you missed it on our socials, we are so excited to announce that Effect House is now available for everyone to use on TikTok. We look forward to seeing brands and creators flex their creative muscles in the world of AR. To see what you can create using Effect House, check out the effects we have made on our TikTok profile @baretreemedia
