PROJECT OVERVIEW

This team project was completed in my 4th semester of grad school. Our solution was inspired by my team's love of slime, high fashion, and art. We were driven by our passions to push the limits of what is possible to create an out-of-this-world experience.

MY ROLE

I helped my team concept/ideate, I designed and rendered 3D models, helped design the pop-up location and experience for the product launch, I helped develop a narrative that brought our concept to life—showcasing how the activation would exist in the world.

 

INTRODUCTION

Slime, a popular DIY activity, has taken the world by storm. Elmer's glue, an essential ingredient in slime, has benefited greatly from the slime revolution.

PROBLEM

The conversation is stuck on pre-teens and slime is perceived as purely juvenile.  

 

Slime is more than just a kid's toy.  Approximately half of slime purchasers are people over thirty. Adults who appreciate slime say it helps express creativity, reduce stress and anxiety, and focus attention on something playful.

REALIZATION

Slime is somewhere between art and a stress ball.

OPPORTUNITY

People can manage their stress levels by dedicating their personal attention to something tactile and pliant. This can be in the form of exclusive collectibles by Elmers.  

 

SOLUTION

A stunt that involves a limited edition collection of exclusive sensory fashion collectibles by Elmers.

 

Before revealing that Elmer’s is behind the collection, the brand can show up in a heightened, mainstream way to effectively gain attention and shift perception to the infinite possibilities of slime.
