3D Character: Fishtank

ROLE: Senior Developer & Designer, Team Leader, Client Liaison

Kiers was commissioned by Fishtank to create their website and webgame and related assets .

An important design feature of the website was the idea that a fishtank was behind the screen, and that you could peer through holes in the design and see the fish there. Navigating between sections and pages changed the location of the holes, and changed what you could see in the tank. Fish characters interact with the holes, peer through at us on the other side, and are visible chasing bubbles.

The primary designs and animations were created by Kiers, and led the development of the subsequent library of animations which eventually featured on the site. There were over short animations in total.
