La Colombe - Oat Draft Latte R&D

Client: La Colombe

Coffee brand La Colombe approached me to experiment with ways to visualize their new Oat Milk Draft Latte product. They provided me with the unreleased packaging, and I modeled & textured a 3D version of the can. Throughout my testing I used fluid simulations, cloud VDBs, dynamic plants, and optical illusions.
