We believe that every time we bring an audience, a classroom, or a conference together, we are engaged in an act of community building. We create inclusive and immersive spaces that center voices and share value.
MODE has created hybrid community experiences since we started in 1997. From the beginning we have blended digital technology with human stories to create amazement, inspiration, and education.
MODE provides creative direction, design, and execution for immersive brand environments, e-sports events, “instagrammable moments”, trade show design, and broadcast brand events. Our team includes writers, creative directors, executive producers, screens producers, production designers, project managers, projection/content designers, lighting designers, and interactive/UX architects. We use augmented reality, artificial intelligence, projection mapping, automated scenic elements, and compelling engagements that reach all of the senses.
