Ep. 9 | Storytelling Distilled: Experiences Drive Human Connection

“There is a special kind of magic that lives in creating shared moments in time.” 

-Nick Rivero

We came across this line in a recent Medium op-ed, and couldn’t resist reaching out to the author to learn more about his perspectives on experiencing stories with new technology.

Nick Rivero, co-founder of Meptik, shares his unique journey from classical music major to data visualization innovator. Fusing skills in design and technology, his company is pioneering creative modes of storytelling that are possible in today’s new paradigm.

Nick tells us about painting stories on buildings with projection mapping and reimagining the content development process as real-time and reactive. He leaves us with a call to action to reinvent how we connect audiences and drive human connection.

Listen to our conversation with Nick, and experience Meptik’s cutting-edge work through these links and videos….

For International Day of Yoga, Meptik teamed up with lululemon to host an immersive, virtual yoga experience.

The graceful rhythm of an ugly virus on the move. Meptik created visualizations that are driven by data, in real time, to bring awareness to the devastating impact using the same tools for concert visuals and live experiences.
