Web Developer / Game Dev Enthusiast / Traditional & Digital Sculptor

About

Hi, My name is Rodrigo Thauby, I work as a Senior Web Developer at ISL during the day, and crunching pixels in Zbrush, Unreal Engine and Unity by night. I'm also terribly fond of inhaling noxious chemicals like Airbrush fumes and Monster Clay solvents. I also enjoy getting yelled at by teenagers on Overwatch and playing many other PC games.

Prepare to be slightly amused by my stuff.

Work

Generation Beyond

This project was built for Lockheed Martin and was part of a multifaceted venture with Framestore (NY) and McCann. I was tasked with creating an interactive 3d experience, which I built in Unity. I also contributed with the marketing site with had loads of CSS animations.

I wrote an interesting breakdown of why we chose Unity for this project in the engineering blog at ISL. You can find it here

Chloraseptic - Coat your Throat

This project was part of a Facebook campaign in which the user could design their very own "ugly xmas sweater" and share it on Facebook. There was a contest at the end and we produced the actual winning sweater.

The designer software was made using HTML canvas by leveraging EaselJS.

Red Bull - Brooklyn Nets Trivia Locker

The Redbull Nets Trivia Locker is a Knowledge game that is a physical device that we shipped to the Brooklyn Nets and allows guests to play for actual prizes. We allow for realtime sharing of scores on Twitter and periodically enable the machine to prop open and give out prizes to winners right there and then.

More work

Some of the other, more long-running projects that I've worked on at ISL.

Service Year is a non-profit that has been working with ISL for over 2 years, striving to connect young people with career opportunities in service. I've been very lucky to be a part of this team, its cause, and also has been a great learning experience in a more long-term project.

The Family Online Safety Institue first came to us for a redesign about two years ago, and I was tasked with leading the Front End development for that project. Two years later and the maintenance contract is still in my hands.

Art & Games

Game Development

Below is a short demo reel of my various experiments in Unity, Unreal Engine, and the colateral artwork I had to create to support it. Most of that artwork was created in blender, zbrush and modo.

Traditional Sculpting

My interest in traditional sculpting started from getting introduced to Garage Kits by my father in law. Slowly I became more interested in producing my own GK than purchasing them, and eventually that has led into digital sculpting which is what I'm currently pursuing.
