Sketch 1 (1,500 characters)

Final indication of an encrypted, safe message. A series of images could simply be used over time, the message being written by one person, going into the envelope, the padlock coming up, being delivered to the recipient, who unlocks the padlock, then opens the letter and reads the message.

Sketch 2 (1,500 characters)

A warning against unencrypted messaging. The warning could play out over time, the writer writing a message and putting it in the envelope, the message being transferred to a recipient, being read by a third party, who puts it back in the envelope, and it's delivered to the recipient.
