XD Collective Group
Who we are:
We are a group of MFA students at the University of Colorado’s Experience Design program. Experience Design (XD) is the creation of site and event-based interactive experiences for the public. These experiences include themed entertainment and amusements; cultural attractions and events; interactive museums, aquariums and exhibits; public installations; and immersive and alternative theatrical productions. It is the creation and design of experiences that have an impact on the senses, mind, body and spirit of attendees. The process of designing these experiences requires inspiration, collaboration and a high degree of creativity.
Our cohort is comprised of a collection of diverse artists. Veronica is an international artist from Puerto Rico. She has created immersive theater and performance pieces in Spain, Puerto Rico, Italy, Chicago, Detroit, N.Y.C., and Denver. Lyndie is a former advertising and branding account manager with experience in creative projects including: branding & identity, web, print & digital collateral, apparel, and packaging. Erin is a technical specialist who has spent the last ten years working in the theatrical and entertainment industry; she has a specialty in lighting. Alec is pursuing a M.S. in Technology Media and Society with a focus in Creative Technologies and Design. He completed his undergrad in Creative Technologies. Research includes interactive holography, set/prop design, robotics, consumer product design, and human-centered design. Adrianna has a B.S. in Interior Design and has worked at an architectural firm doing commercial work. She has many skill sets ranging from fine arts to 3D digital and physical modeling.
