The field of gobos and architectural projections is strongly influenced not only by the change of seasons but also by fashion. What are this summer’s trends? While custom gobo requests converge through the GoboService Stores from all over the world to the desks of our graphic designers, wedding gobo enquiries increase significantly, the corporate and promotional events sector remains stable, slowing down requests for company security gobos.
So, first let’s look at wedding gobos... what are the most recurring features? Stylized and intertwined initials are in great demand in the European and Near Eastern markets, whereas in North America they prefer an artistic frame containing the full names. These gobos are mostly made in two colours, usually black and white, and are projected inside the buildings as decoration for the reception room, where they may be used to soften the background behind a bride and a groom or embellish the buffet. Few messages, more symbols, lots of creativity help to personalize the day like only "Gobo lighting” can!
Gobos with logos on them have become a must for company conventions, at least judging by requests coming from far away Japan as well as from neighbouring Turkey. Corporate patriotism is characterized by full colour light and symbols. Whether it is for affirming the identity mark or for the launch of a new product, the use of gobo projectors for advertising is essential for the message immediacy and the simplicity of use of the projectors and moving heads; it doesn’t really matter if it’s equipped with glass or metal gobo as we produce both.
The luminous and impalpable messages are set on solid bases such as stainless steel or nickel silver on our “metal” gobos or the borosilicate glass layers of the glass gobo designed to withstand the critical temperatures and UV-radiation generated inside the machines. Once engraved with the laser ablation technique, the coating contains artistic details which make a strong communicative impact when projected.
Whether used for a wedding, a convention or a cultural event, GoboService’s gobos are definitely in vogue again this summer!
