Special Event Design


Aidan Ashby for the Jesus Army in the UK brings us this elaborate event and its stage design.

Their key idea for the event was the building blocks that make up their church. To create the look they used truss uprights as a framework and scaffold towers in front with a Youngman board spanning these.

They had a bunch of square and rectangle frames covered in white material that they used for previous designs. They modified a few to create the triangles at the top of the house structure. They built this structure during the event to add some interest to the stage. Once it was put together they front-projected onto it some motion graphics.

They decided to use a painted cardboard sleeve to put over the steps on the sides. They printed words on them to represent the elements of the church.
