Digital Dance Studio


Design and art direction for Alexander Whitley’s Digital Dance Studio - a desktop and VR app dedicated to the crafting of choreographic sequences, whether for live performance, film or tutoring. My role has been to craft the look and feel of the world, from unique, multi-platform character designs that are inclusive of body types through to various real world and abstract environments.

Part of the work involved researching and building a set of inclusive non-normative body types, Houdini allowed me to create a template for a character and quickly  bake out variations, totalling at 256.

From the character designs came the branded elements. This work straddles between Houdini + Octane for look dev through to building elements in Unity.
