Laura worked with 3D Illustrator Tim Reynolds to bring the Twitch 2015 Retrospective to life. The theme was "Welcome Home", where Laura envisioned a single-page scroller that traversed a whimsical house in a gamers’ paradise world. From Laura's initial sketches to launch day, the process took about 2 weeks.
Every animation was created with CSS and HTML, using JS to trigger scroll events.
"Scene", "Layer", and "Block" components were critical to creating layered animations and building repetitive shapes that could be triggered recursively.
Animations had to be as performant as possible in order to cascade across many objects while scrolling. CSS Triggers and DevTools' continuous painting mode were invaluable to minimizing webkit paint times.
