and I partnered up to demonstrate the unique possibilities of Miro for strengthening team connections through puzzles and play at Miro Distributed '23.
The event showcased a large visual Miro board (with illustrations from CNVS) containing 6 different escape rooms.
Services I provided:
Said did most of the heavy lifting when it came to the storylines and possible puzzles. We refined these ideas across several meetings.
I delivered various moodboard to define the 'Weird and wonderful' visual theme, and Said's interactive puzzle prototypes drove the content for what you see in the final result.
We then split into separate tasks whereby Said took refined the puzzles, and I created themes around those puzzles and the storyline
Once the designs were finished and built into Miro, it was time to test the content for usability and enjoyment.
We ran two beta testing sessions that proved invaluable to the development of the games.
Through those reviews, we understood that we needed to tweak the difficulty levels and instructions in order to improve clarity and true enjoyment for the users.
On October 18th, we went live at Distributed '23!
In advance of the event, I prepared assets for Said to use with OBS that meant our session felt less like a live stream, more like a tv show.
The result was a smorgasbord of visual inspiration - not only in how you can use Miro, but oin how you can deliver presentations in a unique and memorable format.
Said Saddouk for being an unbeatable collaborator. Bringing his A-game for Miro knowledge, puzzle designs, and getting s**t done in a short space of time.
If anyone wants to expand their horizons with Miro, OBS or the Elgato tech suite, go give him a follow - or book a one-to-one session. You won't be disappointed! 🙌
And to our two superb online escape games players (Annie MacLeod of Project Management Gameboard, and Daniel Wirtz of the Facilitator School), your team spirit and dedication to making this a demo to remember was second to none.
Thank you heaps for your time, your energy and your efforts. We loved doing this event with you ❤️.
