I got lucky working alongside the good people at Buck LA on this spot for Dignity Health! (Full credits below)
Below are some of the designs I got to work on. 80% of the designs were painted in Photoshop, I used some 3D compositing as well as texture overlays for the details.
This was an earlier version of the green compartment.The idea was to have wooden blocks bouncing around a bouncy-castle-like compartment when the word 'Funny' came on.
Thinking of how the mechanisms would work was tons of fun. What would spin the cassette tape? How should we keep the balls afloat?
Earlier concept art
At the early stage of this project, I got to create concept art for a more tactile direction that would involve paper craft. Below is the concept frame that was painted in Photoshop.
