"A big part of finding each flavors' distinct look was the development of specific camera blurs, film burns and lens effects that when applied to the scene gave it an extra level of realism."


"When we began working on the design concepts, we really leaned into warping and bending light through glass, water, or other materials. While those experiments provided a lot of really interesting ideas, we realized we needed to pull back into a more grounded direction. However, the experiment phase was put to good use as many of the ideas generated were subtly reused throughout every aspect of the final project."
