THE ASK

Choose a stale industry and find a way to disrupt it.

THE

OPPORTUNITY

There is an intrinsic value that photo booths provide by creating fun, memorable moments for the user. The format of the photo booth has remained stagnant for years, yet still remains in demand despite the increase in affordability of digital cameras and smart phones. While we don’t want to interfere with the function of the photo booth itself, there is an opportunity to enhance the experience individuals have while taking photos.

There has been a rise in the number of pop up museums in the past decade due to the unique, vibrant backdrops and fleeting photo opportunity they create. Additionally, push back from deep digital immersion has surfaced in search of a new tactile connection with the world.

THE

SOLUTION

A pop up museum and photo booth hybrid.

The Pop-Up Phenomenon

“There’s a new style of art installation popping up in cities all over the world. It isn’t created to showcase classical paintings or to house impressive historical artifacts—it’s designed to be photographed for Instagram. In these pop up museums, the room and you are the centerpiece. You are immersed in the actual art, which invites the viewer to participate.”

 

-Christophe Haubursin, Vox

Photography Today

"We are in an era of progressive photography. People are wanting to buck tradition and embrace a unique photo opportunity. Pictures are now so much more vibrant. People are endeavoring to take a great photo, rather than 'eh, I have to take pictures.'"

 

-Alexandra Zissu, The New York Times

For the creative enthusiast who values immersive experiences, Pixilpop transforms spaces from static and stationary to dynamic and full of life. Unlike traditional photo booths, our signature photo pyramid is a reflection of our client's unique aesthetic.

The Design

The pyramid for the Pixilpop photo spaces was chosen because a uniquely shaped space makes a statement from every angle. The shape is featured in bright red in our logotype to highlight this distinct characteristic. The triangle is also repeated as a subtle pattern and thoughtfully placed throughout the  website.

 

A vivid color palette was chosen to highlight Pixilpop being a fun, exciting new service that is meant to enhance and liven up any event.
