3D Animator • Communications Designer • Technical Artist
Here is a mix of my art and interests: sketching, painting, digital art etc.
Hello! My name is Aashay Mehta, and welcome to my portfolio. In my early adolescent years, I spent more time fiddling with software instead of playing computer games. With the help of a manual in 3Ds Max I was able to understand the basic concepts of sub-division modeling early on. On the merit of files I created, I was enrolled into a post secondary software course for 3Ds Max. Being the youngest student at the center, I got my formal training and introduction into the digital world at Maya Academy of Advanced Cinematics. Then, after higher secondary school I pursued a bachelor's degree in arts, focusing in animation and visual effects.
Post graduation, I have mainly worked with architects and sculptors, for whom I was responsible for making visualizations and drafting technical drawings for production of a wide range of things, while also managing a few projects in the digital medium for different business clients.
AutoCAD, 3Ds Max, Maya, Photoshop, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Dreamweaver, Illustrator, InDesign, Zbrush, Rhino, HTML, CSS.

The Sacred Grove 1/3
A concept proposal for the installation of an Augmented Reality game to improve the waiting area experience of a corporate building.
The general idea of gameplay was to compliment the tree-like columns of the room and visualize its immediate surroundings into a forest reserve, with the aim of preserving the last living trees in the world.

The Sacred Grove 3/3
A live interactive invitation ceremony for a wedding, to simulate a tradition of relative families writing the kankotri invite card through a digital medium.
Starting with an animated short video of concept story-line, followed by a set of 50 personalized videos for guests, all playing in a seamless manner.
This is the map of the final execution of this event. The presentation clicker glows when the button is pressed by a family member, triggering next video. There were two audio inputs used, one from the video itself as sound effects and another being an ambient soundtrack playing separately with it. As a result, audio never breaks the ambience even if the video itself is paused on the last frame each time. Full video below.
Achuk Environmental Solutions is an emerging company with an innovative and eco-friendly solution to fight fires.
For this company I have worked on a series of visual promos; i.e. Videos, Infographics, HTML Presentation, and an Interactive Document.
An architectural video walkthrough for the promotion of a new gym in the city.
production of a realisitc video tour for client visualization and social media circulation to create awareness and allow viewers to experience the layout, showing the various dedicated areas of exercise.
Rendering a video with proper quality checks can prevent unwanted result and a waste of time and resource. Due to this project, I learned to keep following things in mind before rendering: enabling motion blur, thoroughly checking a low quality preview render for issues like flickering and checking high quality preview render with periodic frame jumps to ensure quality in final output.
Heptagon Box 1/4
This is a smart and visually appealing solution for package design that folds and assembles straight out of the machine.
Using only corrugated cardboard to house lampshades for shipment, this design features a single joint on the outer box and an assembly of slotted interior forms to cushion the lamp shades and strengthen the structure of the box.
Heptagon Box 2/4
The design and aesthetic of the box was inspired from origami. The box was to have a decagon base, with interlocking top and bottom flaps.
At first the lampshades were measured precisely from their molds, referencing their images into Rhino to get their shape and dimensions.
The boxes were classified into two catagories based on the dimensions of the lamp shades. A few changes were made in design i.e. smaller top flaps and a heptagon base to account for better stability, while also keeping the form.
Heptagon Box 3/4
Once the box was ready, Interior forms were designed which served as a protection case for the lampshades. The horizontal disks prevent the box from bending or deforming and keep the product in place, while the vertical ribs hold the structure together.
Assembly of the box and interior forms with respect to a lampshade.
After the design was resolved, making the working drawings for cutting was the next step. Unwrapping the box gave us the result above, which was then modified to fit into the available material sheet.
Heptagon Box 4/4
To complete the assembly of the interior forms structure, there are 7 identical vertical pieces and 4 horizontal disks that follow the shape of the product.
The design of the interior forms above produced a lot of wastage, to counter this another option was designed, breaking the horizontal disks further into equal parts that locked onto two vertical ribs individually, This allowed for a lot less material waste but increased the cutting cost as well as labour.
Although this option was not used in the final production, the idea was worth mentioning and may be viable in other cases of mass production.
