Fusing Ideas

TEDxOhioStateUniversity is an independently student run and organized TEDx group. The design committee's role in the organization is to create all of the branding for each year's main event. Design produces the graphics, motion and, visual elements to support the event. We work with various vendors to create some of our larger endeavors such as the stage and large print initiatives.

The Main Stage

The stage and set design for Fuse takes visual cues from the graphical branding elements. Feeding off of the explosive energy of the animated content used at the event, the stage appears to be a burst of cubes frozen in mid-air. Simple printed three value shading on foam core was illuminated from below by LEDs, creating a stunning and vibrant backdrop for each of thirteen unique speakers.
