It is a universal truth that all artists think they a frauds and charlatans, and live in constant fear of being exposed. We believe by working harder than anyone else we can evade detection. The bean-counters rumbled this centuries ago and have been profitably exploiting this weakness ever since. You don’t have to drive creative folk like most workers. They drive themselves.

In January 2011 Muchomedia delivered a giant 3m50 x1m30 multitouch table for the French Luxury company Chanel. The context was an exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Shanghai “Culture Chanel”. The table is entirely conceived and built in Muchomedia’s workshop in Paris. The software runs on the AAASeed platform by Mâa Berriet with interactive design by La Forme Interactive.

We are presently perfecting the technology to make the experience even bigger and brighter for upcoming made to measure solutions.

Why I Work at an (Ad) Agency

There’s a sentiment among some UX folks that working in advertising and marketing is somehow a waste of time. The belief is that ad agencies are inherently evil and that creating “products” or “solving-problems” is the only real UX role that’s worth a damn.
