One Very Big Day

Canberra, Australia's bush capital turned 100 in 2013 and to celebrate they held a huge party attended by nearly 300,000 people.
 
Here are 2 highlight reels from Canberra's Centenary celebrations 'One Very Big Day'.
 
I created content, packages and was the OB Line Producer for Screencraft Media.

WYNLEN HOUSE Interactive Rack Card
The gorgeous Bronwyn and Helen of Wynlen House Slow Food Farm and Learning Centre were invited by the Italian Slow Food Movement to their Conference in Turin in September 2016. They needed something fun and interactive, light and portable and easy to update in both omnichannel presentations and transmedia outputs, with a seamless optimised backend and a gorgeous digital interface. We wanted interaction data too, across numerous events, that could be validated within the integration by pulling data metrics across a suite of analytics tools. It also needed to look good in its print form, load digital content quickly and efficiently and have a easy-use interface to optimise experience for users with multiple digital literacy. The opportunity to test one of our new prototypes in an international and domestic territory was too good to pass up, so here is a new use of a developing interactive print/digital portal. This one is powered by Layar. Scan the front and back panels with your device and watch a video or press the buttons. Feedback is always wanted. Likewise we're always looking for Guinea Pigs wanting to do something new with brand narratives.
