The Playground

A scattered grid of half-finished pieces, random ideas, and experiments that (mostly) have nothing to do with digital product design. Anything goes, but it's mostly cooking experiments.

Experimented with a new design tool named Spline. It allows for easy and rapid design of 3D elements for the web that can be exported as an interactive URL, video and code for development.

Did.a study of the Figma app icon from 2D to 3D in varying depths of the Z-index, layers and lighting treatments.

Click here to play with the icons. Zoom in and out, and click and drag to pan around in 3D.
