I see events as part of User Experience Design. Events are designed for the user in order to make them experience something. Up till now I have had the opportunity to work on a couple of events. During my Internship in New York City I got to see how an event management company works and got hooked on it. After I returned I first specialised myself in User Experience Design. We were mainly taught UXD through wireframes, apps and other online media. But I felt it could be applied to the 'real' world as well. That is why I choose to do the minor 'Event Management' and got to work on my own event.
Currently working on an sports and lifestyle event for people with a mental disability. This event is part of my minor in 'event management'.
This event will take place on the 13th of January 2019 at ROC Sport College in the Stadion of Galgenwaard (FC Utrecht).
We are making great lengths with the preparations. During this project I'm in charge of the 'Experience'. Therefore my main role during this event is to bring all kinds of creative input to make the experience an unforgettable one.
So far I have worked with all kinds of media for this project.
On the left you can see a promotional video I recorded and edited in order to motivate people to come to our event.
My marketing and design internship was at an event management company called: Fourth Wall Events, based in New York City.
During my internship I have contributed to a few events.
- Macy's Thanksgiving Parade
- Gordon Foods
I worked on these events mainly for designs and photography.
The organisation 'Zonta' hosted a musical event with workshops in order to raise awareness for female rights.
I was invited to take pictures during the event.
