“Why do we get goosebumps? Why do we get butterflies in our stomach? Why are some of these experiences and events more memorable than others?” asked Michael Blatter, founder and C.E.O. of New York-based agency Mirrorball. Blatter’s team has delved into the research on emotions, psychology, and memory, finding that there are ways to effect the neurochemistry of guests at events. Mirrorball took its research to create a framework for designing experiences that rely on narrative and evoke specific emotions. The agency has applied these lessons in millennial-friendly events for clients such as Jack Daniel’s, Harley-Davidson, and Dos Equis.
