PHAROS was a live experience developed by the Childish Gambino team to debut a new album live in Joshua Tree, CA to thousands of fans. We developed an app for the event which featured a custom anti-scalping ticketing platform. The PHAROS Earth app allowed users to receive information about the event, purchase tickets, and pre-order merchandise to be picked up at the event.
We created the award-winning interactive experience for the Deep Web Tour by Childish Gambino (a.k.a. Donald Glover).
Fully designed and developed in-house, we provided a full solution from rendering hardware
to a mobile app for fans to download at the show.
Fans were able to interact with a real-time projection that displayed drawings and messages from the app. There were also elements designed to accompany the show, such as live polls and push notifications.
Our work helped Childish Gambino win the 2015 MTV Woodie award for "next level performance", given to artists who find new ways to "reach their audience through cutting edge technology".
We worked with Childish Gambino to craft a website for the screenplay that accompanied his sophomore album "because the internet". The site featured custom music players for the tracks in the album and video players for the clips. Users could also 'hack' the site to reveal hidden content.
