by Marc Wakefield 


PROJECT: Sensorama PFW + Valentine's Day stickers

AGENCY: Pink Salt

TALENT: Marc Wakefield

ART DIRECTION: Eugenio Ormas



YEAR: 2020


The Hotel Vivier this year will have 6 rooms dedicated to 5 senses + 1 extra sense GHOSTS. The set design and the creative set up will be rich, fun and surprising, based on a monochrome concept per each room. The idea is to produce 6 Filters connected to each of the 5 senses + 1 – so to each of the room of the Hotel Vivier – and to be linked to a QR Code that will appear on the paper invite as well as the digital invite. 2 Weeks before the event the guests will receive the invite discovering the 5 filters via the QR code and will start exploring the filter experience, while the 6th sense will be released only on the day of the event. All the celebrities and guests at the event will play and interact with he filters, sharing and posting it on IG with the goal to get viral.

Marc runs the design studio ARDS, an independent design studio who specialise in Augmented Reality experiences for the media, entertainment, music, retail, F&B and live events industries.

Long term augmented reality expert Marc Wakefield’s filters are also featured in Grimes’s musical experiment. Widely known for his creepy clown filter that lead to him creating the Macphisto effect for U2 (a monster-like top hat and make-up effect Bono wore during the band's tour), his career naturally progressed from building standalone AR apps before getting involved with the creation of Instagram effects. Wakefield believes the accessibility of AR across social media will instinctively act as a starting point for newcomers to experiment with, but that “a lot of people are not fully aware of what AR actually is and a majority of the filter users probably don't know the complexities behind it. The cool thing about this is that it is getting users comfortable with seeing a digital overlay on the physical world.”
