Form….Function….Composition!

November 5, 2014

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]

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, […]

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, […]

I have to say, stage lighting is in our blood….it’s where most of us at Greenlight Creative got our start. Our team has lit the gamut; from rock tours to nightclubs. Dance and theatre to awards shows. As the lead designer, my first “specialty” in the lighting world was live music (although decency demands that […]

In fact, they are a big part of what makes us tick around here (and what we win awards for!). We light tradeshows, sales meetings, product introductions, branding events, company celebrations….an almost unlimited variety of events, really. But no blog entry about Greenlight Creative and Corporate Events would be complete without mentioning our wonderful and […]
