Organic

Senior Art Director

Concepts for Intel in-store product promotion - decided that as the products featured a touchscreen (new at the time) that a great way to communicate the uniqueness of a product with a touchscreen was to have people try it. I pitched putting games on the computers. Games that people already knew how to play so they could without fear give them a try. Intel loved the idea and from the first meeting said yes. I went on to design and direction the build of 2 games for use in-store.
I was asked to return after the games were finished to work on a social project for Intel and devised a quiz - What type of Ultrabook are you. This was popular and was seeded with bloggers to grow the viral reach of the fun way to find out how your personality can guide you to the right Ultrabook for you.
