An animated thinking

Finalist at Apple Creative Talent '09 for Motion Graphics.

Industrial Design thesis project

In 2009, we were approached by Okko, a biometric identification start-up, to design a family of 3 products: a kiosk, a handheld device and an accessory for cash registers.

I imagined a service that integrates with the users lifestyle aiming to create seamless identification, payment and health experiences.

Built using:

  • Rhino3D
  • Cinema4D
  • Keynote
