Exhibitions & Spaces

Orlando works with organisations, cultural institutes, marketing departments, brand agencies and a variety of partners to design the experiences that connect people to the purpose of your brand and the heart of your message.

Not everyone is familiar with the term ‘Experience Design’ which encompasses multiple disciplines and uses many techniques. In an increasingly digital and information saturated world, real-time, lived experiences enable us to make deeper connections with ourselves, our consumers, teams and audiences. The outcome of ‘Experience Design’ is always meaningful interaction.

With a masters degree in exhibition design from Sweden, Orlando specialises in conceptualising, curating, designing and facilitating compelling and moving experiences. His work can be experienced in a wide array of industries and contexts from major public exhibitions that showcase artefacts and tell stories in innovative ways to immersive retail and branded experiences that activate consumer behaviour and inspirational events that connect teams.
