New at R/GA

I am very happy to share that two of my students from the Interaction Design class I teach at the School of Visual Arts in New York City are now summer apprentices with R/GA. Xin An is at R/GA Shanghai. Laney Lynn is at R/GA LA.

After teaching one session on how to prototype AR & VR with web technologies, they went to town and created the works below.


Maze by Xin An
A VR Experience based on dreams.


Gallery Vision by Laney Lynn.
A business card enhanced through AR connected to a larger way of making the Museum of Art and Design more interactive.

I believe this shows the value of being able to prototype for AR and VR. When working on the cutting edge in a space where there are not many examples of best practices, it is essential to be able to work in a form of that medium and not be bound by legacy tools that cannot convey the foundational methods of experiencing the medium.

So good job and welcome two new team members to R/GA.
