At BOLTBOLT, we believe in challenging the established norms and redefining the concept of owning an exceptionally remarkable product. Our vision revolves around a future where the Metaverse enhances real-life experiences, transcending the confines of the physical world. We believe the next generation of products should not be constrained by the limitations of the tangible realm but should instead be designed to seamlessly blend the virtual and real worlds, creating extraordinary moments beyond imagination.

NEBULA stands as BOLTBOLT’s inaugural product, a physical and digital speaker tailored for the upcoming generation of music enthusiasts, collectors, and creators. The Physical Nebula is a technological art piece meticulously crafted with distinctive ferrofluid visualization, avant-garde aesthetics, precise engineering, and an unwavering commitment to detail, delivering music in its purest form. Complementing this physical marvel, the Digital Nebula exists as a 3D artwork within the Metaverse. It is obtainable as a redeemable NFT, granting access to the limited edition speaker and an immersive digital experience.

When the concept of NEBULA was conceived at BOLTBOLT, it was accompanied by the idea of creating the NEBULA NFT Mystery Box. This digital blind box contains a randomly selected NFT from the NEBULA Original Collection. The motivation behind this initiative stems from BOLTBOLT’s overarching philosophy of pushing boundaries and redefining our surroundings. We aim to empower customers to explore the uncharted territory between the physical and virtual realms. These NFTs come in ten distinct themes and variations, each possessing its own unique style and personality. Through the synergy of art and technology, we aspire to reshape people’s expectations and ambitions. NEBULA serves as a conduit, transforming the mundane aspects of everyday life into a realm of fantasy and endless possibilities.

The motivation behind the creation of this poster series was to craft a distinctive set of posters that would captivate our audience’s attention, introducing them to NEBULA, our startup’s flagship product. With this initial product launch, we aimed to provide viewers with a surprising and delightful experience as they explored the product and its features. Consequently, we opted to design the posters around our distinctive NFT series, showcasing our bold and expressive aesthetic through graphic elements. Through this poster series, we aim to invite individuals to experience the fusion of art and technology while encouraging them to express their individuality.

Joo Park is passionate about creating meaningful brand identity systems and bringing them to life through animation. She was born and raised in South Korea, studied at the ArtCenter College of Design to learn graphic design, and now works as a designer in LA. She embraces and cherishes all kinds of culture, food, and nature, and she strongly believes that great designs emerge from the desire to make the world a better place.
