CIRQUE DU SOLEIL

4 Presentations on innovative costume design and process

Client Name: Cirque Du Soleil

 

Project Name: Innovative costume design

Description: How Cirque Du Soleil can apply innovation to the costume design, concept design, creation and documentation process

Who:

With over 100 critical staff of Cirque Du Soleil presented to in four different presentations.
Directors of Cirque Du Soleil, Creative directors of C:Lab, Creative director of 45Degrees, All costume design managers, team leads and eventually open presentation for costume designers themselves.

What:
I spent 5 weeks at Cirque Du Soleil. While there, i was given access all costume design departments. It is an incredible place, with tremendous equipment, safety, and custom tailored environments. The staff are absolutely talented in their craft, and have been at Cirque Du Soleil for many years. I discussed with most departments about their process, workflows, and was able to gauge an honest view on new kinds of innovation at Cirque Du Soleil. Over time i could identify distinct areas where innovative design thinking could be applied.

 

Title:

How Cirque Du Soleil can apply innovation to the costume design, concept design, creation and documentation process

 

Topics included:

  • How I create costumes that use innovation and efficiency as the driver of the design.

  • How to save time, cost through smart use of 3D software/workflow.

  • After assessment of Cirque DU Soleil, where I can see opportunities to refine and optimise design workflow.

  • How I can assist with design process, to meet critical annual goals.

  • Where I observe the blend of costume and 3D interaction in the future, and how Cirque DU Soleil can achieve similar scale.

  • Where I can suit contributing to Cirque Du Soleil costume design.

 

Additional output:

A revised document that outlines the presentations in more detail with examples of design pipelines. Sent to directors.
