Most people don’t know what someone means when they refer to the word “gobo” until they actually see a picture of one. However, they have quickly become a popular item among clients. Just as uplighting or pin spotting adds a nice effect to a room, a gobo adds a custom touch reflecting the overall feel of the event.
With a variety of colors, fonts and layouts to choose from, your options are limitless. Here are some helpful tips we thought that we would share:Choose a surface that is unobstructed and that will be in the frame for photography/videography ~
Be cognizant of color choice and what will show best on the surface (your venue should have an idea of what works and what doesn’t) ~
Should you choose to project a gobo on the floor, keep in mind that it can possibly change the skin tone of your guests, ultimately effecting the quality of any video footage taken ~
Pick a font or layout that is legible for all your guests ~
– Less is MORE!
We LOVE gobos and can’t seem to get enough. Are you a future bride (or client) of The Room on Main? Make sure to ask about our custom gobo design for your upcoming wedding or event!
