I had the unique opportunity to work on projects that merge traditional and interactive media, and attraction venues together in unique original transmedia experiences.
While Art Director for Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Online (WDPRO), I Art Directed the Expedition Everest website. The website told the story of Expedition Everest - Mission Himalayas — an extraordinary expedition to the mountains of the Himalayas to explore the legendary "realm of the yeti." Conservation International and Discovery Networks will join Disney in the search for new species and ancient legends on this scientific and cultural journey to China and the eastern Himalayas.
The expeditions — as well as the making of the attraction — were chronicled in three documentaries broadcast on Discovery's cable television channels in April 2006. Rohde was featured in a Travel Channel program titled "Expedition Everest: Journey to Sacred Lands," which premiered April 9 to coincide with the attraction's grand opening.
