Memphis, TN - History in the Remaking

The Memphis Brand Initiative wanted to do something for the Memphis in May celebration that combined the city's rich history with its modern focus on technology. So, we built an app that used augmented reality to bring the past back to life.

People could download the Memphis in May app to learn about the many places of historical significance within the city.

Users could then visit the locations and watch life-like recreations of the events using the app's AR function.
