Future of Flight - AJXXXIII Launch

For the reveal of Jordan Brand’s AJXXXIII shoe last fall, we transformed the new Jordan Flagship retail location in downtown LA into an unforgettable launch experience for exclusive media attendees. The Jordan Brand introduced innovative footwear technology inspired by space exploration. We were tasked with creating an environment showcasing their advances in footwear technology and research into cutting edge sports science equipment. Attendees were led on a private journey to explore the futuristic Jordan space lab concept and to try on the newest footwear technology, getting a first-hand experience of the latest in training and physical therapy research. The journey was guided by recordings of Michael Jordan’s own voice, and culminated in an exciting high-speed curtain drop reveal of the ground breaking AJXXXIII shoe. 

Our team provided overall technical design of the space, created custom video content, and the audio and lighting design. Our project management team ran the live show, queuing the timing for the reveals and progression through the attendees journey. Our scenic team created space curtains from metallic fabric and mylar, and fabricated many custom fixtures designed to create a space laboratory setting.

Nike + Carhartt WIP Collaboration

Nike + Carhartt WIP Collaboration

Working with the LA Nike team, we produced a brand activation space to launch the Nike and Carhartt WIP collaboration footwear collection. We designed a workshop themed space aligned with the tradesman Carhartt brand identity, using materials found on a typical construction site, and located within the Bodega Store in Downtown Los Angles.

We created custom workshop themed product displays and furniture using builder grade materials, with the signature Carhartt orange used selectively throughout each element. 2x4 lumber, cinderblocks, workers sawhorses, and stacks of plywood sheets were utilized to create a cohesive workshop. We decorated the space by installing Nike and Carhartt campaign imagery and graphics, printed on Carhartt duck cloth canvas true to brand feel. We also brought in an old school 80’s CRT television set, acquired from a coworkers parents garage, to fit the lo-fi aesthetic of the Carhartt brand, which looped content created by the Nike brand design team.

We installed sewing machines and tailoring supplies for a complete clothing customization workshop experience, in partnership with Lot, Stock, and Barrel, an LA based clothing customization team, to create personalized and unique Nike + Carhartt garments for the launch party guests.

Samsung Galaxy Studio Tour

Samsung Galaxy Studio Tour

Samsung went on a national tour to commemorate the launch of the Galaxy S9 and highlight the camera’s properties. We were asked to re-create a mobile activation of the existing low light booth at Samsung837. This activation, titled “Brilliant in the dark” encouraged consumers to utilize the low-light camera on the Galaxy S9 that adapts to light like the human eye with its adjustable aperture. The Satis&fy team is delighted to have been able to help make the experience possible by building the immersive audio and visual light show. The activation traveled across country from Phoenix to San Francisco, Houston to Cleveland, Atlanta to New Orleans and touched down in 15 cities overall in the United States over the course of the summer in 2018.

National Order of the Arrow Conference

National Order of the Arrow Conference

Last week, several Portland satis&fy members took a week of their personal time to volunteer for the Boy Scouts of America. Together with a crew of 120 fellow Scout leaders from all across the country, they produced 4 original shows over the course of 5 days, for the National Order of the Arrow Conference. Held at the Kimon Skjodt Assembly Hall in Bloomington, Indiana.

Paul, one of our technical designers, worked on this show for the 8th time since 2002. This year he was director of the Day in Review crew that was tasked with shooting video of all activities throughout the week long conference and editing a video to be shown by the start of show each evening. Paul's crew of 8 included a scheduling wizard, a video cataloger, a still photographer, a video editor, and four videographers. Over the course of five days they created 500 gigabytes of video files which were sorted and edited into a total of 21 minutes of final content.

Nick, another of our amazing video engineers, worked his second National Boy Scout Conference. Nick was tasked to engineer the Video Village, running the Barco E2 and ATEM 2/ME. He wrangled 18 video sources, output to 12 distinct destinations including several LED video walls. Our summer video department intern, was on Nick's crew and got quality hands on time with the ATEM, video cameras, Playback pro, decimators, and fiber distro. He also got the opportunity to technical direct the live camera switcher. 

Thank you to all involved and for donating so much of your time and talents.

Ketel One - Botanical Launch

KETEL ONE BOTANICAL 

In May of 2018, Rosie Lee reached out to satis&fy to partner on a project for Ketel One. Earlier that month, Ketel One debuted their new Botanical line which is low in calories, has no carbs, and that will strike home with the health-conscious consumer. The event featured a workout class as well as the opportunity to enjoy the new line of vodka.

Hosted at the 620 Loft & Garden in Roc Center, satis&fy worked closely with Rosie Lee to meet the designated budget, hit deadlines, and bring the design to life. Satis&fy were tasked with producing all scenic elements, technical production, and gifting. The majority of scenic items were created in house and satis&fy worked closely with partner vendors to execute the additional elements. 

The final result was a successful media and influencer event that drove social engagement and generated buzz for Ketel One’s new product.

FreePort High School Mural

FreePort High School Mural

The Freeport High School Mural was completed on May 9th by a Maine company called Better Letter Hand Painted Signs. Tessa, the owner of BLHPS, also runs the Portland Mural Initiative, which aims to bring contemporary art into the public spaces of Portland, Maine and its surrounding areas. The track and mural were paid in part by Nike and dedicated to Joan Benoit Samuelson. Joan wont gold medal in the full marathon race at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, the first time the marathon was in the Olympics for women. Joan lives in Freeport, Maine and grew up in Cape Elizabeth. We were excited to partner with Tessa and her company because of their involvement in beautifying Maine with art and their community involvement.

Additionally, due to the variability of Spring weather in the northeast, it was great having her team be able to jump on and off the mural in between their other projects when the weather allowed. The school was extremely helpful with the project giving up indoor storage space for the paint and materials. During the community day on Saturday, May 5th, which Joan attended, we had about 30 community volunteers, both children and adults, come out to help paint. The mural was made as a “paint by numbers” so that any skill level could jump in to paint. The amount completed over the course of the day was staggering.

Thank you to all involved and for this great opportunity to contribute to the community.
