Motion Graphics Monday: Tranquil & Soothing 3D Liquid Effect for Visual Inspiration

For some creatives, the hardest part of the week is getting the creative juices flowing, especially after a long, relaxing weekend. One suggestion we have when your not feeling at the top of your creative game is to give your brain a jumpstart through various forms of inspiration. If you are a regular reader of the blog you know how much we love well-executed motion graphics and today is no exception.

The commercial for Ariel Ambrosia Detergent (seen below) effectively executes some of the best 3D liquid effects we have seen. Over the course of 30 seconds, the viewer is taken on a calming, soothing journey of stunning visuals that show the liquid take on a life of its own. Who knew detergent could be so stunning?


ARIEL AMBROSIA – TRIZZ Studio Director’s Cut

TRIZZ Studio states, “Around April 2013, we directed a commercial for Ariel Ambrosia Detergent for Saatchi UK. This is our Director´s version, a far removed artistic interpretation of that commercial concept, which we have developed as a visual exercise and to polish our 3D liquid skills. All work seen here is 3d. Enjoy!”
