Discord Camp Wumpus at PAX East 2022
Discord was set to make its appearance at PAX East 2022 in Boston, the largest gaming event in North America. This marked a significant return to in-person events after several years. Our mission was clear: to establish a positive and playful brand image and bring a compelling story to immerse our attendees.
Our responsibilities encompassed creating an engaging and joyful experience for PAX East attendees. This involved collaborating closely with our booth vendor to provide the necessary assets for our booth and designing merchandise for sale on-site. As a beloved community platform, our primary goal was to foster meaningful connections with our partners and dedicated Discord fans, ensuring they had an unforgettable and immersive experience at our booth.
We recognized that, following the pandemic, people are even more eager for a relaxed setting. Therefore, we decided on "Camp Wumpus" to present Discord as a place for people to relax and hang out with their friends. To bring this concept to life, our design featured giant bugs, a cozy campfire, fake grass, and a collection of camper-exclusive merch.
We went for a fun and quirky vibe with our Night Theme Camp Wumpus. It's got some funky bugs in a flat, playful art style, with geometric shapes, and a dark camp forest color scheme derived from our brand colors. This whole look adds an adventurous and mysterious feel to our booth, ensuring we stand out and draw more attendees at PAX East.
