2019 Walt Disney Imagineering Design Competition

I had the pleasure of competing with a team of three other people in the 2019 ImagiNations competition! The competition is a way for students and recent graduates to showcase their talents and for Walt Disney Imagineering to identify new talent.

Competing with around 300 teams, our team placed in the Semifinals.

Norðrið is an immersive resort based on the Norse interpretation of the Northern Lights. Just as the Vikings had a unique connection with the natural phenomena, so will you and your family through interaction with unique characters, stage shows, and demonstrating artisans. Located at the training grounds of the fearless Valkyries, this multi-day immersion gives meaning to each attraction and interaction. Lend the battle maidens your strength, cunning, and bravery to help them forge the mythical armor that gives the Northern Lights its magnificent glow and earn the title of “Berserker.”
Viking Spirits join you through the link of your bracer, a celestial wrist guard that channels their will. Each step and challenge will bring you closer to the spirits of the Vikings. Should you succeed in the Labors of Light, you may enter the great hall to join Brynhildr, the leader of the Valkyries, for her greatest fight against the Nameless.

The project was conceived by Ringling College of Art and Design Team and created for the 2019 Walt Disney Imagineering’s Imaginations Design Competition. This project is the sole property of Walt Disney Imagineering and all rights to use these ideas are exclusive to Walt Disney Imagineering.
