We often encounter someone who is designing an event (let’s say….a gala or reception), and for them, design consists of table centerpieces and an entry arch. Or a few gobo projections on the wall. Or linens and chair covers. While all of these things may enter the purview of the event designer, they really aren’t “design” by themselves; they are

How an AWESOME Rollout Should Go

Here at Greenlight, one of our specialties is the new product or brand rollout celebration, which is also one of the most widely varied types of events we do. These events are hard to categorize; not just a party, not really a meeting, not exactly an exhibition. What they do all have in common is that our clients are asking

D Rose All In For Chicago

Remember high school pep rallies? Well, the latest event that Greenlight lit was like that, but so, so much better. The United Center in Chicago was packed with over 5,000 high school aged kids, 2,000 of their chaperons, media, rapper Big Sean and of course NBA MVP Derrick Rose himself. Once again we worked with our fantastic friends at Henry

Creative Lighting Alternatives

There are many important aspects of event lighting, but it doesn’t have to be one or the other when it comes to functionality versus style. It also doesn’t have to be the types of lighting you most often hear about like gobos, uplighting, or string lights. At GreenLight we make it a priority to think outside of the box and

SOL Republic Product Launch: The Deck

Fast, creative, and strongly branded corporate events are always a blast to be a part of and this recent event with Henry V was no exception. Our friend Annie Sunseri of SOL Republic (who was once with InFocus and has been a long-time client of Henry V and Greenlight Creative) came to Henry V with a “go big or go

New Years Eve with Patrick Lamb

We had an event at the Governor Hotel with Patrick Lamb in late April, and it reminded us of another event we recently lit at the same venue with the same talented performers! We rang in the new year at the first annual Governor’s Ball benefiting Boys and Girls Aid. The evening featured the music of Patrick Lamb….one of the youngest Oregon Music Hall of Fame inductees….fancy, we

Another bridal show….it ROCKED!

In the Northwest there are hundreds (this is not a joke) of bridal shows we could attend every year. The reality of event lighting, similar to videography, is that static images don’t effectively communicate the impact of our our ability to help create an amazing event space. To really allow our potential clients to experience what we do, and the difference that it

Adidas Boost Media Launch

Timed with the infamous New York Fashion week, Adidas opened the doors of the Javits Center in NYC to 350 media members eager to learn more about Adidas’s new Boost shoe technology. We’re lighting experts, so we’ll spare you any attempt to explain this amazing new sport shoe technology. Instead, here’s a video with a sneak peak at the launch and the product: Adidas Boost

Wedding of the Season?

We’ll let our viewers decide, but for us, this one rocked the house. Drawing from the closely-related but “not quite the same” themes that our bride loved, we were charged with blending Victorian, Steam Punk, Gothic, and a healthy dose of what we can only call “Shabby Chic Roadside Speakeasy” into one cohesive presentation. Luckily, this played out in 4

Everything Old is NEW again!

We’ve invested in lots and lots of the latest technology — High-end and even wireless LED especially, which of course is all the rage in lighting these days….but more on that in another post. For today, we’d like to talk about “old” technology. “WHAT!” you say? Yup. Sometimes, trends and styles demand that we step back in time to adapt
