Curate a virtual design event to hold the stage for designers to show their talents.
Virtual design exhibition and career fair for young designer
How might we leverage the power of virtual reality to empower the fresh graduate designer during pandemic?
Role / Contribution
User Experience Design
In 2020, the COVID outburst changes the world significantly.
Fresh graduate designer designers who are looking for job opportunities during this time are facing a series of cancels. Many lost excellent opportunity to share their portfolio to recruiters/designers from the industry and connect in job fair, thesis show, meet-up, etc.
These numerous "Cancel" stories happened all around the world, which got me thinking about how can I help/contribute during this period.
Therefore, I leverage my past experience in exhibition curation and learn Unity from scratch to work/ prototype this idea of a virtual design sharing event as side project.
Based on the research and learning and synthesize into structure insight. The idea of an event or exhibition providing young talented designers to showcase their work and connect with the industries gradually frame up.
