It was though, a great honour to be asked to partner with Channel 5’s The Gadget Show.
Usually when we work with a client, we’re given a brief that is closely aligned to their business needs, and then, following an initial discovery session, we deliver a response combining our creativity and code.
On this occasion, we were given a blank canvas, other than gathering that presenter Jon Bentley had been tasked with going up against a professional florist, and that he required our help to create the ultimate floral bouquet, quickly.Interactive floral bouquet
So that we were able to get the creative juices flowing, we invited Jon and the team up to our Leeds office, where creative director Andy Park, director of strategy Shay Moradi, and designer Marta Rei, presented a number of ideas, before settling on an interactive installation based around a floral bouquet.
As you’ll have gathered, this wasn’t going to be your standard Mother’s Day bouquet, folks! Oh no!
The concept we decided on allowed visitors to interact with the bouquet by using a familiar piano interface to play a melody of their choosing, which was then translated into lights, music and smells. Each of the seven physical flowers played a note with a corresponding colour and smell.
Easy, hey!? Well, not quite. In addition to custom programming and bespoke fabricated and handcrafted components, there was also an audio component to the installation, which had to be delivered within a stringent time frame.The finer detail
