Entertainment and education experiences at Smashing Ideas
2006 - 2009
Resonant entertainment experiences focus on human beings, first and foremost. This means finding out what people want and how people play. While at Smashing Ideas I learned the importance of knowing and respecting the audience, whether that audience is kids or grown-ups. My sensibility for creating engaging, human-centered design was been sharpened by dozens upon dozens of productions.
