PRODUCTION SERVICES

Creative Design for Events and Production, Experiential Events, Technical and Fabrications


Our agile approach to creative concept and ideation reduces the time to design any campaign by working directly with our creative and production teams at the same time. By working as a collaborative team, we make best use of our client’s time by assessing any design and concept ideas and ensuring the end production meets the objectives.

This ensures that the designs are reviewed directly with any technical or cost constraints that may need to be considered, along with assurance that the design stands up to any safety, material or environmental considerations. Ultimately this means that the design process is shorter, more efficient and that production is much more certain to avoid any possible complications.


To ensure your creative concept meets your expectations, we offer a 3D modelling and render service, whereby we create your concept as a photorealistic model, including the ability to walk through to see how the experience will look once built.

This process gives you the opportunity to consider everything from lighting, props, layouts, and can include every single detail including fabrics, artwork, floral displays, materials and people. It will give a true idea of size and space as well as allow you to modify the physical layout if needed before committing to the expense of the build.


If you really want to impress your audience, the only way is to have a unique one-off production to distinguish your brand from your competition. Creating unique centre pieces, vehicles or structures is one of our company specialities. We can fabricate unique pieces here at our dedicated workshop in central London.

We’ve built everything from vans to tuck-tucks, theatrical props and elaborate bars, to branded pop up retail outlets, one-off ferris wheels, giant clocks or headphones container conversions, escape rooms and a million other products besides.

With a design and production portfolio experience in TV, film, luxury brands and music productions, we have built it all. From Vevo to the BBC, Virgin Atlantic to Net-A-Porter, Absolut to Perrier Jouet, Amazon to Timberland, the list of unique one-off products is endless.

We can design anything you can imagine from the ground up, fabricate from any material including plastics, steel or timber and build in our twin 6500 square foot workshops in London and Essex.

No matter how big or small your event is, we have an enormous range of technical equipment available. Whether it is an intimate event, corporate AGM, music or stage production or a multi-stage festival, we can supply everything you need. 

We have a wide selection of audio and visual products available direct from the our UK technical warehouse to hire, along with the technical expertise in-house to install and operate for the live event. From staging, rigging and SFX to giant LED screens, blended projection, lighting, sound and control systems.

Our technical team can work with you on whatever your needs are and provide a full range of consultation, design. We also offer a full range of SFX capabilities including pyrotechnics, dry ice, foam, laser displays and much more.

Our experience of stage design, lighting and sound is unparalleled. With over twenty years experience working with the worlds biggest clubs and superstar DJs in Ibiza, we have honed our ability to deliver the finest quality live productions. 

Delivering for clients like the BBC to deliver Radio live events across the UK and Europe has given us the breadth of experience needed to deliver events on any scale. Having produced events for Annie Mac, Blondie, BBC Click Live and countless others and delivering to venues such as the Roundhouse, Hyde Park, Pacha and Amnesia in Ibiza among many others.

Our teams are fully able to seek council and event approvals, establish health, safety and method statements, and ensure the necessary agreements are in place for rigging, hanging and power provisioning, as well as logistics, security, crowd control and crewing to manage the construction. Safety and security is key and our teams ensure it is managed from end to end.

From digital interactive dancefloors that change colour as you dance, to piezo electric soundwaves that cook food, we have a fantastic range of capabilities in-house to build bespoke and unique digital productions. This can range from custom photobooths, to interactive displays and experiences.

With a team of dedicated electronic engineers and computer programmers, we can create anything you can imagine. Whether it is interactive digital tracking, payment services, entry and exit systems, or something more bespoke, we have a wide range of products and services available for customisation, installation and operation.

We also offer a range of services utlising the latest augmented, experiential or virtual reality.

We don’t limit our events to just be in person. In a digital age where your customers and clients can be global, we offer the latest state of the art digital video processing systems to stream events live around the world in real-time.

Using specialist video capture and broadcast technology, along with multi-camera vision mixing we offer the highest quality streaming capabilities on the market. With a graphics overlay mixer, sound processing and hardware video compression, you can be sure that your audience get the highest quality experience to reflect the quality of your brand.

Whether this is an annual AGM, live music event, stage production or awards ceremony, we can produce a live broadcast production with our in-house video and live streaming production crews.

We’ve worked with brands including Kaspersky, BBC, Net-A-Porter, L’Oreal and Stock-X to connect with their colleagues, hold shareholder meetings, and publicise product releases to their engaged audiences. Working closely with media networks including Google, YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, we help you include, engage, and grow the audience you want. Click here for more info.

Our event dressing service is one of the most important parts of our production offering. By ensuring the smallest details are addressed you can add enormous value overall to any production. We do not spare a moment on dressing and we have a dedicated dressing team that will source the materials, products and floral displays.

When you are producing the full lifecycle of an event, it puts you in an ideal position to ensure that all of the smaller details are captured and included. We involve our set dressing teams early in the process, to ensure that they fully understand the production goals and ensure they source the best products. They also test products from across the landscape to ensure durability, quality and visuals of any selected products and materials to ensure they meet the high standards of the production.



We’re not just here for the exciting things in life. Wherever your production takes you, we have a dedicated logistics team to support you, and if needed we have our warehouse and logistics centre to support your storage and distribution needs.

Our secure dedicated warehouse on the outskirts of London is organised using state of the art software and registration systems. You can store your production or brand assets throughout the year, and obtain access to them when you need without any reason to worry about them.
