Pokemon & Hello Kitty Toys for McDonald's
Colorful Kitchen set toys, developed specially for McDonald's France. So, left to right, you see egg cup, drink mixer, ice trays, cookie cutters and stampers, egg cup again and 2 fruit juicers at the center. With this set we were particularly pleased with how surface texture/finishes came out to be: mat or shiny, slightly speckled or smooth (reminds me of days when all of these were Maya shader considerations!). That little extra glossy finish on the character eyes did make the premiums pop!
This set has a bit of a special place in my heart as it was my first lead-designer project over a year ago..It was a challenging one, with numerous re-design attempts... honestly, how many different egg cups/ice trays can one imagine?? 8 is the answer... :D but at the end of the day, hopefully it is enjoyable to use these in kitchen.
Other than that, it pains me, that I rarely do blog updates .. I hope to share some freelance work for a show's mechanical puppets soon enough. And start to throw in some more personal work too.. :/
Lastly, to those who read this, thanks for popping by! (:] xox
