A+E Networks Upfront immersive event experience around the theme of 'Women Upfront: The Storytellers' for ad sales.
Four months in the making and from the beginning it was clear that the New York Public Library would be the perfect location and canvas of where the beginnings of A+E's Upfront would take place. The initial theme 'House of Story' was a broader premise where A+E's brands would have a platform to tell individual stories. Olivia Munn, Queen Latifah, Kristin Davis, Leah Remini and many more personalities came to tell personal stories of how they connect with A+E's brands.
From the steps of the NYPL to cocktail hour, the dinner and gift bags—this 360 immersive experience had social media in mind, but more importantly, provide a platform for storytelling to be heard and expressed at a time when a movement is happening for women all over the world.
Design and aesthetic had to reflect the A+E brand—fun, playful yet sophisticated, confident, understated and chic in aesthetic. From the smallest elements like napkins, to the broader ideas around event sound design and graphics, concepted and executed to be one of the largest and most successful events in A+E Networks history.
