Mariana Duprat | designer
Designer with a passion for interaction and education.
Heavily involved in projects for interactive exhibits, educational toys and games, motion graphics and promotional materials.
A brand can set the tone for a company, a book can be judged by its cover and a TV advert can decide whether or not you will tune in tomorrow.
There are many ways to communicate an idea through different media.
How can you create engaging experiences that quickly convey complex information to children, teens, and grown-ups from all kinds of backgrounds? These exhibits and modules gave me the opportunity to take on this challenge.
The way people communicate and interact with each other has always fascinated me.
I try to use my educational projects as a tool for integration and assimilation.
These projects integrate digital experiences with tangible products.
The focus is in delighting users with novel types of interaction and content visualization.
