InfoComm 2019 is North America’s  largest professional audiovisual trade show, with over 40,000 attendees from 110 countries coming together to talk about the latest industry trends. As a part of the conference, ESI Design’s Mary Franck, Senior Creative Technologist, will be sharing her interaction design expertise in two talks: a keynote on designing data-driven, generative experiences for corporate environments, and a retail-focused panel with VMSD Magazine.

What to Expect at TIDE: Using Digital Content to Engage and Inspire

ebay corporate campus design interactive displayContent generation is a constant challenge – but what if you could create a system that creates its own content? And what if the key to that content was something your client already has in spades? On Tuesday, June 11th, Mary will give a talk, “Designing Data-Driven Generative Content for Digital Installations,” sharing how ESI Design uses data to tell human-centered stories on epic canvases for companies like eBay and PNC Bank. The keynote is a part of TIDE, a conference co-located with InfoComm focusing on Technology, Innovation, Design, and Experience. As a designer who works at a large physical scale with branding and digital installations, Mary will highlight how data visualization functions in immersive environments, outline how she translates numbers into experiences, and show how technology is secondary to story.
