A creative use of the latest in technology including WebGL and Microsoft’s Face API.
Digital Podge is an invitation-only annual lunch
Each year a new agency takes on the challenge of creating a new identity and digital presence for the event. In 2018, FX Digital was approached by long term partners, LAB, to collaborate on what was to be the most exciting and creative Digital Podge event to date.
Responsible for the associated digital effort and faced with the theme, ‘Unconsciously Coupling; the act of initiating positive relationships without being aware of it’, FX Digital aimed to create an interactive digital experience that would encourage and compliment these relationships prior to and during the event.
The pre-event website comprises of an expressive WebGL hero, reveal on scroll event information and an interactive attendee graph. Whilst during the live event, individual profile pages for each attendee could be accessed by scanning a QR code from the guest’s event badge.
QR Codes on Badges
Event attendees scanned a QR code on their badge to view their profile, along with photos of them recognised by the Microsoft Face API
Using the Latest
Using the latest in Microsoft Artificial Intelligence from the Azure Face API, FX populated each of these attendee profiles with facially recognised images from past events.
The event was a resounding success, and the creative technology delivered by FX Digital perfectly complemented the nostalgic theme of the event, and was praised by both the event organisers and attendees.
