From May 13-15th In Good Company carried out, in collaboration with partners and the KaosPilots in Aarhus, Denmark, the first open sign-up course for international professionals in experience design in Scandinavia.
The 3 days were a tour de force into the world of designing and staging meaningful experiences – methodologically, theoretically and above all: in practice!
If terms and concepts such as pre-exposure, extension, personal/social/physical context, Imagineering, wholeness-oriented experience-approach, theming, sensory stimulation, co-creation, generosity, compassion, transparency and authenticity weren’t familiar before the course, there is a great chance that they are now.
20 unique participants from Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Germany & Brazil made the 3 days extremely touching, memorable and learningful. They came with backgrounds in design, management, advertisement, sales & tech – they left as experts in the rare discipline of relational architecture.
The backbone of the course was the immersion into 3 unique real world challenges brought in by 3 of the participants that called out for innovative experience design solutions.
The experience challenges
The challenges we worked with:
"Nothing less than a life-changing experience - personally as well as professionally - was what happened during the three days of the Imagineering experience design program at KaosPilot in May 2014"
Next course November 19th-21st
We are already plotting on the design of the next open sign-up course which will also take place in Aarhus, Denmark. Dates are 19th-21st of November. Location to be announced. For more info on course and sign up, go to: www.kaospilot.dk – and check out the May-course experience on Facebook!
