In 2022 I was hired by Method Studios to design the armor that animates on in this ad for Black Panther:Wakanda Forever and Mastercard.
I worked directly with the Method team to explore various approaches inspired by the Black Panther design aesthetic.  After my final design was approved I handed it off to be animated by another team member.
