When the cameras are around, you want to put your best face forward. For organisations that arrange press or media events of any kind, that includes having just the right backdrop for all those photo and film opportunities.
For example, you might want a media wall your guests can pose in front of for snapshots with a celebrity guest. While making them feel like stars on the red carpet, you’ll also want to take advantage of the chance to feature your brand logos or sponsor icons.
Or, perhaps you’re hosting a televised press conference: In this case, you’ll be thinking about the backdrops behind the presenters as well as supporting signage.
No matter your specific needs, we can put our high-quality, professional-grade printers to work for you. Our graphics and production teams work with a variety of materials and tools to create polished media walls, mountable banners and other signage that perfectly represents your brand. To support flash photography, we’ll plan your media walls accordingly and consider every angle to make the most of your press coverage.
Custom-built backdrops for any setting
The most common choice for press backdrops and media walls include the “soccerball” print with a pattern of repeated brand logos and icons. You’ve probably seen this layout on the television and in magazines covering award shows and other occasions. By using a patterned arrangement with one or more small images, your brand messaging comes through even if people are standing in front of the backdrop – that’s the purpose, after all!
To add an extra special dimension, we can also overlay larger, faded images, such as stars. Our graphics team will work with you to come up with a look that creates a special, stand-out experience without being too distracting as a background.
Our products have appeared in a wide range of locations, so an unusual space is no obstacle. For instance, we’ve created backdrops for press events held in airport bays, applying some components to the jet bridge and even the airplane itself.
In-house graphics printing for top-quality backdrops
Because we do everything in-house, we can custom-build these pieces to just about any shape, size or specification. We’ve created tall banners that can be applied temporarily to walls, branded frames for speakers to stand under, special signage for stages and vehicles, and more.
Our crew has experience working with a wide range of materials, including dye, latex, pigment and solvent inks, as well as laminators and vinyl cutters. With over 15 years of experience, our print bureau delivers high-quality digital wide format, offset, flatbed and screen printing.
Convenience and speed: For-hire media walls
While our operations move efficiently and our project managers ensure everything is delivered on time, we have for-hire options that offer additional speed and convenience.
Whether you simply don’t need the same degree of custom build as some of our other media event backgrounds or you need something only for a short period of time, you might be interested in renting one of our pre-made media walls.
With fabric skins, these press backdrops are sleek and professional-looking. They’re easy to transport and quick to assemble, so you’ll be able to set up in a snap no matter where your event requires you to be.
Proj-X press event productions
Proj-X has delivered custom press backdrops and media walls for some of Australia’s biggest brands. Here’s a look at a few of our recent projects:
- Qantas: We provided the signage and branding for their welcome-home press event for Australian Olympians. They also asked us for support with media walls for their farewell to the Aussie cricket team before they departed on their Ashes tour.
- Virgin Australia: To help them unveil their new regional airline operations in Perth, we created a frame for the jet bridge as well as graphics representing the brand for the red carpet event.
- Peroni: Outfitting an iconic property, we produced removable mounted graphic banners, a media wall for photo shoots as well as some artistic prints to build the atmosphere.
That’s just the beginning. We can accommodate a broad range of venues and specific requirements. If you’re looking for a more dynamic experience, we’ll create walls for projected imagery. This works well for the opening walls of a runway, for instance, and the possibilities are endless.
Beyond the photo op
Although Proj-X has significant experience supporting media events, our graphics department can create prints and structures that suit a broad spectrum of purposes. In addition to runways and press conferences, we’ve produced signs and prints to adorn vehicles, offices and more.
For example, some clients have asked us to print artistic shots to decorate their offices, whereas others want branded pieces to help fit out their reception areas.
No matter your needs, we’re happy to work with you to determine just the right design, materials and structure. Bring us your ideas today to get started on a press event backdrop or other graphic to support your brand.
