About me
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 — branch
    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.
  • Adidas — plastic
    Adidas — plasticPlastic is a research and development project for Adidas. I was asked to create a liquid reacting with a shoe and I personally developed the original idea further to an abstract form reacting on Adidas X Parsley collaboration fighting plastic-free oceans.
