AVEC is an NYC-based all-natural mixer with five unique flavors. The web experience features dynamic product templates with 3D modeled scenes that immerse the user in the worlds of each flavor.

Upon landing, the user is met with a scene of a cutting board surrounded by the tools and ingredients typically needed to create a high-quality mixed drink. After scrolling, these ingredients and tools slowly fade into a monochromatic background and the AVEC can is brought to the foreground communicating a simplified shift from that to this. Scrolling further, the can locks into place alongside the remaining flavors. Scenes cycle through the different flavors each time the user reaches the home page to highlight the variety.

Dynamic elements take away the predictability of an eCommerce website, thus making it more interesting to explore. While the structure of the eCommerce experience may be familiar in terms of the user flow and site map, things like responsive product templates encourage the user to spend time exploring the collection. These elements also aid in telling the story of the brand in ways that static imagery cannot. Each product page features 3D renders of the product, ingredients, and objects from their primary scene.

The collection page peers into the 3D scenes, and differentiates each flavor with strong imagery and color palette. Functional aspects— like the ability to quick-add— drive conversion. The user is also able to navigate to each flavor’s page to learn more.

Each component on the site was 3D modeled and rendered. Because the product was still in production shorlty before launching the site, AVEC was able to work with product content before it was canned. Aside from the functional benefits, 3D imagery also suspends reality in imaginative scenery and increases engagement through surreal landscapes.
