Design Home

This has been the project I have been working on full force for the last year. It launched in the US in November so I can finally share some examples of the work. Where to begin. I was brought on by Crowdstar last year because of my expertise in 3D, but also because I have a history of setting up art pipelines. The last project I worked on for them before leaving in 2013 was called Covet Fashion, a 2D game where you dress up an avatar in clothes made by real brands.

This game is similar, it uses only real world interior design brands such as DWR, Kathy Kuo, Loloi and more. It was a terrific learning experience because I had no knowledge of interior design and had to get up to speed on design trends. I created the first images that got buy in from the CEO, and heads of Production. Once we had a quality bar established, I started creating the art pipeline.

A true pleasure working with the team to take this from an idea, to a top app.

Here is a comparison of our in game, realtime level, next to a ray traced version. Its as close as we can get on a mobile device, while still using PBR materials and allowing the furniture to be changed and effected by the lighting and reflections.

Actual gameplay. Furniture is real time, the background is pre-rendered, and we use a skybox for ambient lighting and reflections. We use PBR Unity 5 Shaders so reflective items look particularly good.
