Custom Denim and Diamonds Gobo with blue and white uplighting at Howard University’s Blackburn Center

This features event lighting from Moorean’s birthday party at Howard University at the Blackburn Center. We’ve done events at the Blackburn Center before and knew that the room had tall ceilings, terrible room lighting with no control, and a massive air wall that most of our clients hatewith a passion!

Moorean had a Denim and Diamonds theme to the party and incorporated a western type of feel throughout their decor elements including a live gold cowboy statue, denim and western attire, and western themed drinks and food.

Howard University Blackburn Center Airwall with Gobo lighting of stars and a saloon sign

We transformed the air wall with gobo lighting of a starry night sky and a custom saloon sign above the 16ft bar.

To fix the issues with the space we set them up with our wireless uplighting and used two colors, white and blue to bring light into the space so we could turn off the overhead lights. This bathed the room in a blue and white light that was much better than the florescent-terrible-undimmable overhead lighting. They were going to have a cake so our cake spotlight package was an easy option to really showcase the cake.

Before photos of Howard University’s Blackburn Center, terrible overhead lights are not good for parties.

The massive air wall is always a problem in this room. They have such a cool effect with the large exposed brick walls inside and then ruin it with a massive 70’sesque air wall. We transformed the air wall into a sign above the bar with a western starry sky feel and a custom designed MoMo’s Saloon sign. This created a focal point around the 16ft bar in the room and let people know exactly where the drinks were. Every western town has a bar and needs a bar/saloon. These lights transformed the air wall into the starry sky with a personalized saloon sign. We also created a denim jean pocket encrusted with diamond rivets to personalize the space for Moorean’s Denim & Diamonds party. Our gobo lights are perfect for customizing and personalizing any large event space.

The overall effect really transformed the room and you can tell by the before and afters that it really made a huge difference in the space.

With our rental lights it’s easy to get the effect you want for a fraction of the price of hiring an outside company to do it. Check out our event lighting rental pricing to see how much you can save today!

We are so grateful to work with awesome people like Moorean, here’s what she had to say about the event.

“You transformed that dingy, dinky place into a gorgeous western scene.  I told your brother that you guys were just “showing off”!  Seriously,  I am more than pleased with everything.  A worker there told me that he has worked there for 34 years and that room had never, ever been transformed to that magnitude.!  That partition “popped”! The gobos were awesome! The uplighting was eloquent and breathtaking. Again, what can I say, but thank you, thank you and thank you.” – Moorean Baker

Norma’s 65th Firework Birthday Logo – Adelphi Mills, MD

normas 65th birthday logo light rental Norma’s 65th birthday celebration was at Adelphi Mill in Adelphi Mills, MD. The design features firework explosions surrounding her name. These explosions are unique in that they appear 3-D on the wall. This particular projection used a black and white transparency gobo.

The blue light in the background is our battery powered wireless uplighting rental used in conjunction with our gobo design and light.

This particular projection was shown on a white painted rock wall and it popped in the room providing a great way to brand the entire space very cost effectively.

Sweet Sixteen Stars Party Gobo – Alexandria, VA

sweet_sixteen_gobo_birthday_logo_stars_party_alexandria_vaWe worked with Elizabeth to design her sweet sixteen logo gobo for her party. She wanted something incorporating a stars theme so we worked on pulling together her name with the theme. The i of Elizabeth is a star and works well with the star field around her name.

The logo is projected at about 40 feet away from the light. The light had no problem with the distance or the tall ceiling and it did a really great job!

The first thing that people noticed when they came in was the strong design element of the logo. It very cost effectively transformed the entire space into a party atmosphere by taking the drab white walls and when dimming the lights added the punch that helped pull together all the star balloons, streamers, and stars hanging around the venue.
