Anyway...I took a retail branding class last quarter here at PC (the Portfolio Center) where the challenge was to design our own retail space down to a scale model. Of course, me being who I am, I wanted to design a theme park ride/retail space. I thought this would be a good chance to have my concept center around the above idea of multiple attractions to tell one story. Thus the Villa Tempus was born.

|Peter's photo that we are still in the process of Photoshopping to clean it up|
All in all I have had so much fun working on this project and I hope I have the chance to flesh the whole thing out in future quarters. Here is a little process video put together using i movie. I used After Effects to animate the Time Traveler and the logo at the end.
