About
This place was wild. TKM9 is everything interactive and immersive. Being able to put my mind and my skills into use in these areas was an opportunity to learn that I still look back on and reference.

I concepted, I sketched, I designed characters. A highlight was building and producing designs that were projected across stadiums - where users could interact and feel like they kicked a goal through the concrete of the MCG. For the opening of Emporium in Melbourne, we designed a projection onto a physical cube that bought it to life. My favourite piece, though, was a series of interactive kids games using facial recognition technology and AR.

I learned a lot of technical information and skills, but I also strengthen the ability to think on my feet, to work with a team bring visions to life and then push them further. 

Day to day tasks included:
○ Interpreting briefs into multiple diverse mediums (projections mapped onto complex surfaces, digital signage, interactive games utilising AI and biometric data, multimedia projects, device linked interactive projections)
○ Character concepting and design
○ Taking a concept from scribbles on a napkin to IRL madness, including working side-by-side with developers, engineers, art directors and construction companies.
○ Getting dirty in the set up and pack down of jobs
