Ancient Olympia: Common Ground is a global initiative with the Greek government and Microsoft to digitally preserve the UNESCO heritage site of the ancient Olympics using AI, AR, and mixed reality technologies.

I led the creative execution of the project’s four main deliverables: On-site AR mobile app, HoloLens 2 museum experience, interactive learning and UGC website, and museum exhibition design.


Campaign reached 393 million people at launch

200+ active AR app users at Ancient Olympia per day

Drove more traffic to Microsoft’s partnership website in 3 weeks than any other page in the previous 6 months combined

Exhibition extended 2 extra years due to overwelming demand
