We think of ourselves as multimedia storytellers. Using innovative media and technology, we design experiences that engage the imagination, the intellect, and the senses.

She is a graduate of Boston University with a B.S. in Communications. Robin produced Passport to the Universe, the inaugural 360-degree show at the American Museum of Natural History.

We take a fresh approach to every project, designing ways to seamlessly incorporate media into architecture and exhibits to create transformative environmental experiences. batwin + robin was recently awarded six Cinema in Industry (CINDY) awards for our work at the Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta, Georgia. We also received the American Muse Award for Technical Excellence for the adroit installation, Creation’s Journey, at the National Museum of the American Indian in New York City.
Much of our environmental work includes the production, integration and programming of interactives – from highly customized user-generated experiences to touch screens utilizing extensive content management systems. Our interactive resume includes complex and exciting experiences that use the latest technology as well as simple, but powerful, interactions. Our Binaural Lunch Counter Interactive for the Center for Civil and Human Rights was featured in the Communication Arts Interactive Awards and was the recipient of an AAM Muse Award.
Designing media for theatrical productions is an intensely collaborative process that allows us to explore new ways to visually communicate ideas to audiences. We have received recognition for our inventive work on and off Broadway for such high profile productions as The Normal Heart (Hewes Design Award), the Radio City Christmas Spectacular (Live Design Excellence Award), Radiant Baby (Drama Desk nom.), Harlem Song at the Apollo Theater (Hewes Design Award nom.), How to Succeed In Business Without Really Trying!, The Who’s Tommy, Bring in ‘da Noise, Bring in ‘da Funk and Nora Ephron’s Lucky Guy starring Tom Hanks.
Designing media for events requires the perfect blend of information and entertainment to create unique and unforgettable experiences. Whether live or virtual, events also demand exceptional precision, organization and energy – traits which characterize all of our work. Our event projects have included the CFDA Fashion Awards, Hugh Jackman Live in Las Vegas, a one-night performance by Oprah Winfrey at Radio City Music Hall, WETA’s Well Beings Virtual Kickoff, the UNICEF Snowflake Ball, IBM’s 100th Anniversary Gala at Lincoln Center, and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s Hot Pink Party and first ever Virtual Hot Pink Evening.
