By 27/06/2016 Events No Comments

After a weekend of floats, flags and glitter, Dublin LGBTQ Pride festival has come to a close.

Here’s a look back at some of our clients who are leading the way in diversity and relationship equality.

1. Salesforce

We helped Salesforce mark the occasion with a giant faux hot-air balloon carried through the streets of Dublin for the annual Pride parade – decorated with Pride colours, of course. We also kitted out the Salesforce marchers with rainbow logo t-shirts.

2. Google

Google have a long history of supporting their LGBTQ employees, so it’s no surprise that for Dublin Pride, they wanted to go all out! The Dublin Gayglers march alongside a moving big screen displaying messages of support and a giant Google maps inspired ‘pin’ balloon hovering overhead.

3. eir Parade Bus

Our client eir commandeered a bus for this years Pride march. With a lucky few getting to ride atop the double decker, many walked alongside the branded open top with giant eir balloons and flags.

4. Smirnoff 

We helped our client Smirnoff say a big “thanks for coming out” to all who marched in the parade with a striking Smirnoff arch and turned their marchers into living splashes of colour.

5. Mother Pride Block Party – sponsored by Smirnoff

Our client Smirnoff was sponsoring the hottest Pride party in Dublin, so we knew we needed to do something special!

3,000 party-goers packed out Dublin’s Tivoli Theatre for an outdoor pride extravaganza, feature DJ sets from Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters fame, UK pop star Little Boots, the Queen of Ireland Panti Bliss and live sets from homegrown favourites Wyvern Lingo and Faune – topped off with some phenomenal Vogue dancers. On the day, we installed Smirnoff bars and on-stage Smirnoff branding, dressing, theming, and booking and managing the Vogue sets.
