Experience

  • Swirl Holiday Card

    The team decided that we would create a 3D interactive experience with Three.js as a base. Each year, we would create a holiday card that we'd send out to clients and then allow them to pick a charity that we would then donate to on their behalf.

    We utilized Preact as a base but the main 3D component was built using Three.js. The 3D assets were built in VR using an HTC Vive and Google blocks which were then imported into Three.js.

  • Viveport MailChimp Email Template
