I created all of the displays, graphics, and marketing materials, and spoke about the ROC brand in person. The Republic of Cute is all about friendliness, openness, and education, so interactivity and a bit of zaniness has always been part of my booth "culture." I encouraged people to touch and hold the characters and read their stories (bottom pink shelf shows a line of characters that come with their ID cards).
When I worked in polymer clay (2012-2013), I dedicated a portion of the table to a "sculpting station" so people could touch and sculpt the clay themselves. Later, when I switched to resin casting (2013-2015), I brought my molds and some in-progress pieces to show how handmade toys are created from start to finish.
