I simulate stories and feelings using 3D software. Searching for human connection with natural phenomena. Finding inspiration in biology, psychology, cinematography, arts, technology, and sound. Together with my wife Johana Kroft I'm running a studio called Idea & Maker where we explore storytelling through motion, 3D and illustration.
- CHANEL — branchPart of in-store touchscreen experience displayed in Boutique CHANEL Paris Cambon. Visitors were able to put a solid block in the middle of display to see a an immersive animation that represented a specific scent. I was entrusted with 'woody'. Inspired by early spring I used growth simulation setup based on L-System to represent branch accompanied by procedural flower origami.

- Creative Laboratory - Future shoppingPersonal project exploring the future of personal avatars in virtual space. This idea came from the major events of 2020. We had to change how we live completely. Instead of going outside, we were forced to stay inside. How the future shopping experience looks like? Well, have a look at our video. Creative Laboratory is a concept project by Idea & Maker exploring the idea of a virtual retail store/art gallery. Our custom-made avatars are wearing 3D bootleg clothing of some famous brands.
- In And Proud - Pride 2020June is pride month here in the UK. That means parades, street parties and safe spaces for all aspects of the queer community. Due to the current climate of the Coronavirus, things are put on hold… and Pride in London was cancelled. Pocko Social was contacted by Adam & EveDDB about a campaign and platform they created to help everyone celebrate in their own way, whilst encouraging people to still stay home and save lives. We created a funny dog Avatar to show that we all celebrating together!
