Motion graphic

See better, work better

Freelance work for which I used Substance Pinter for the first time. The client provided a basic storyboard and a CAD model which had to be optimised for animation. I modeled the headband. All of it I put together in After Effects.

Packaging Engineering Rendering

Retail packaging and counter display in one

Problem: Glorify the product without the use of dedicated point of sale material.

Solution: A display box which could be converted to a counter display. HP Envy 8 Note was released in it across Europe. See the unboxing video.

Biggest challenge: secure the products for transportation but make them easily accessible in store (so clients can pick up and try).

Concept Packaging

Tough as a brick

Early concept.

Inspiration: Nature, rocks, cliffs and math. Did you know that only 15 types of concave pentagons have been discovered, which can tile with one type of tile only? The last one was discovered in 2015.
