Stimulant collaborated with The Brand Experience to design and build a digital interactive experience for Honeywell’s Experience Center in Dubai. The project focused on the “Connected Living” experience which includes an interactive narrative of Honeywell’s services and products projection mapped onto a fabricated model city. Tablets surrounding the model city allow visitors to follow along with a curated projection mapped show.

Project

Projection Mapped City Model

In Phase 1 I was brought on as the Visual Designer/Art Director to design the initial look and feel through mood boards, storyboards, and animations in both 2D and 3D. In Phase 2, I was re-hired to finish up several of the projection mapped animations using animated textures in both After Effects and Cinema 4D.

Process

Mood Boards

The mood boards for this project were trying to convey the ideas of futuristic, electric, moving, and dramatic. I was inspired by the movie Tron and the long exposure look.

Tablet Screens

The tablets surrounding the model city allow visitors to follow along with a curated projection mapped animated show. The animation below was the visitor tablet's idle state and shows Dubai's infamous fog moving over and through downtown. The UI was designed to accommodate both English and Arabic.
