I was approached by Diem, the "social search engine," to help with some 3D icons and elements for branding. The most prominent of which is their Oracle, an abstract orb which dispenses advice and knowledge. Picture the face of Siri, or a benevolent HAL 9000. This was a fantastic exercise in lighting and working with diffraction in Octane (the prismatic effect in the animation).
I also created 3 icons which are used in-app and in marketing. These were also a great chance to develop some creative lighting and rendering techniques.
