Civic Hall Labs

Grand Central Tech/Civic Hall/AppNexus, New York, NY

To fulfill their vision for an updated NYC BigApps, the premier civic innovation competition in NYC, Civic Hall Labs brought us onboard to produce the launch event, seven design-thinking and ideation workshops, and the finalist expo and pitch night. Each event was designed in a way to encourage participation, whether as competitors, mentors, or sponsors, and highlight the amazing skills and accomplishments of the community. Using custom imagery, personalized badges, locally-sourced food, and other unique touches, we developed a welcoming an inclusive environment that ensured all participants that even within a competition everyone could still be a winner.
