Project David focuses on the process of creating an architecturally precise 3D digital reconstruction for use in a gesture based learning environment. Using the 4th century BCE Cyrene Treasury at Delphi, Greece, the platform is a template for presenting three dimensional models in a space that will allow for physical interaction through gestures and voice commands. The interface also incorporates user friendly metadata portals that display various resources including texts, photos, video, audio, other 3D models, and Internet hyperlinks.
The ultimate goal of this project is to have a virtual hands-free interface that is projected three dimensionally within a classroom for multi-user interaction as part of the Ashes2Art program at Coastal Carolina University.

Project: Corporate Identity redesign and Film Treatment website
Client: Ciaofilm(Paris, France)
Ciaofilm is a Parisian film production company that specializes in documentary films distributed primarily in France and Western Europe. Garofalo Design was contracted to redesign their Corporate Identity for a more contemporary look and feel.

This inaugural publication from The Athenaeum Press reimagines Nathaniel Bishop’s journey down the Waccamaw River in a paper canoe more than a century ago. The book is the culmination of a year’s collaboration between students and faculty at Coastal Carolina University. Chasing the Paper Canoe portrays the culture, desolation and stoic beauty of the Waccamaw River.
The project takes readers on a journey across history and form. Throughout the printed book, readers can see the stunning photographs come to life as streaming video via an augmented reality application on a smart device. The merrying of digital and print in publication design represents the Athenaeum Press' initiative to be a progressive and forward thinking organization.

The Athenaeum Press is a student-driven publishing lab that focuses on telling regional stories in innovative ways. Rather than accepting completed manuscripts for publishing, the press accepts project proposals that will be intensely developed by an interdisciplinary, collaborative group of students and faculty. The Press seeks these proposals from all corners of the community, including non-profit organizations, community members, faculty and students at other institutions. Project initiators, or those that submit project proposals, will extensively collaborate with the Press team to design, build and produce professional-quality content using unique and innovative technologies and media formats.
