About

TKM9 is a boutique experiential agency. When I joined them, they were working out of a beautiful rooftop warehouse space off Chapel St.

The work that TKM9 does is unique. They create digital and physical interactions for (mainly retail) spaces. Examples that I worked on:

A giant game of pinball where you control the paddles with the movements of your arms and legs (Kinect, Unity).
Projection onto the side of the MCG, including an interactive game that allows you to ‘kick a footy through the MCG wall’ (Kinect technology).
Interactive children's games for shopping centre breakout spaces.
For the Emporium (Bourke St) opening: A physical cube with interactive animation mapped onto it via projection.

Check out TKM9 on vimeo for more.

Challenges

Working across non traditional mediums has its challenges. You don’t know what you don’t know. The fun part of these challenges was that everyone was so committed to finding the right solution for the experience.

Personal highlight

Illustrating and designing an interactive game, end to end, and then watching kids absolutely LOVING it.
