My job in this was to make the T-shirts for the event, but of course it couldn't be that simple. Instead, we came up with a preposterous idea that gained wind -- to design a treasure map of the office for the shirt design and then actually hide real tangible items. My main accomplice was my (wonderfully creative) coworker Jason*. With him, we added making the tangible items riddles that all led to a website. If you figured out the website quickly enough, you got a prize!
Pics or it didn't happen.
Step 1: Making the Map
Step 2: Hiding the Riddles
I bought, modified, and hung a subtle clock on the wall so the "III" was there to see if someone was searching for it. Justin Bieber is always there. (What you don't have a life sized cut out of Justin Bieber in your office?) The envelope was taped under the clock.
Now for the big one: "X marks the spot," said Indy. That "X" mat was made with a rubber mat and some paint. The X was on the floor just like in the movie. The riddles were adhered to the under side of it.
Step 3: Building the Website
It was just the start of the games though and the Hack'd was, as always, full of ideation meetings and a lot of really cool technology. Kudos to my coworkers who work very hard as well as play very hard.
