Smirnoff Comic Book Party
Smirnoff Comic Book Party July, 2010, Toronto, Andrew Richards Design, The Loft Space
The environment featured a comic book style narrative that followed guests from the street entrance into the party upstairs and followed the guest's unfolding story throughout the night. Custom animated comic panels were created along with a custom designed projection screen in the style of a comic book panel for the DJ booth. Special lighting was designed to create the illusion of comic book shading on the guests and the environment. A live Twitter feed was projected in one lounge area, where partygoers' tweets would show up instantly on the wall, and a live drawing photo area was also set up using video projection to capture photographs of guests as if they were part of the comic. DJ Deadmau5 performed. Projected behind the DJ booth, ghostly sheer panels from the ceiling as well as onto the huge window panels that covered the entire south wall, creating an immersive atmosphere emphasizing the mood, color and theme of the event.
