We’ve all seen the standard ‘red carpet’ clips that come out of every event. In the marketing industry, it’s called a ‘step and repeat.’ And in the background is that inconspicuous wall with the name of the event and the event sponsors – your Dolce Gabana, your Virgin Airlines and your Pepsi, every few inches.
Some eyeballs fixate on the designer clothes walking the red carpet; some eyeballs fixate on the certain physical proportions in those clothes. Whether we realize it or not, we’re all taking in the event graphics in the background of photo walls (sometimes called step and repeat, or press wall).
Because in addition to the celeb news channels shooting video, thousands of photos are taken. And perhaps millions will scroll through the photos, seeing the brands on the photo wall. And it’s just a simple matter of large format digital printing.
But a step and repeat isn’t just for award shows and Hollywood film premiers. An increasing number of smaller events from independent film festivals to local fundraisers are making use of photo walls.
Maybe you’re not bankrolled by Monster Energy or Samsung, but without your sponsors, your event might not happen. Moreover, you need to take every opportunity to get your own brand out there. E! News might not be there, but hundreds of people from your community will.
