Mars City Design
Immersive Mars Dinner
I was brought onto the project nearly 2 weeks before the event. Partnering with Mars City Design and Hank & Bean Catering, I worked with the Collective Future team in designing and producing an interactive experience.
This was my first time working in Experience Design and Design Fiction. Although I never realized it till I started working on this project, I only ever imagined either dystopian or utopian futures. But there’s a very real middle ground of Future Design thinking: it’s not about predicting the future, but rather a way to tell stories about alternatives.
I had three objectives in my work with Collective Future
Research: Ensure that elements used in the experience were accurate and appropriate for the setting that was to be created.
Production: Gather all of the elements through third party sources, and with the use of run throughs and journey mapping, affirm that the users will have an easy and joyful experience throughout the evening.
Social Media: Plan social media marketing to gather notice and attention before the event, and continue original and creative posting both during and after.
