Project Overview

Every year the Interaction Design program at SMC releases an annual report that covers the highlights and achievements gained during that year. Dave Giammarco from Cohort 6 took on the task of designing and delivering the 2023 Annual Report, for which the faculty wanted to highlight the brand new student studio space, "The Green Room." Dave reached out to me to help create a 360 VR tour to highlight and give an immersive look into our new space.

My Process

Taking Photos

This project was fairly straightforward. I came into take photos of the space and saw an opportunity to expand on the experience so I interviewed one of the teams about their project. That helped me determine what aspects of their space we could highlight.


The 360 tour alone has gained over 1100 views since launching! It continues to grow in view count every day.
