1 – Background

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

Pixi.js liquid animation

2 – Creative direction

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.
