Hollow Forms liquid distortion image animation

1 — Vision

Dima reached out to me to “funk up” the existing Hollow Forms website with the use of animation.

Pixijs distortion animation

2 — Design

I suggested an animation that makes the images of the glass vessels distort like a liquid. The playfulness of the liquid effect went well with the spirit of the brand and the liquid form was also a reference to the production method of the glass vessels themselves.

3 — Implementation

Animations were implemented using Pixi.js with custom shaders.
