SXSW // Discover the Here and Now

In March, we traveled to Austin, TX to be part of the SXSW festival. The week-long event was full of energy and creativity, and the city is a hipster’s dream. Attendees were invited to panels, trade shows, networking sessions, presentations and performances at the Austin Convention Center and other local businesses. The conference is all about innovation and technology, specifically in the areas of music, film and interactive media.

2016 marks 30 Years of SXSW and it continues to grow each year. We were stoked to be a part of the Launchfest at Maggie Mae’s with three photos booths running simultaneously, each with its own custom backdrop. SXSW is an important piece of our culture and we were there to photograph the occasion, documenting the up and coming, the startups, the inventors.

SXSW brings together people from across the spectrum, even keynote speakers POTUS Barak Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama! The President’s main message was about technology and its role in civic engagement. Do your part to better your community and country? We can get behind that. Michelle shared her message and efforts on the importance of educating females around the world. SXSW landed in the middle of Women’s History Month, so it was the perfect time to spread the word about Let Girls Learn.

Last, but not least, scroll to see some of the shenanigans from our booth setups. All three locations were open concept with custom printed backdrops, photo prints and Animated GIFs. Join the conversation #IgnitionSXSW #SXSW16.

Photo Booth Donation – AMS Senior Prom

New York Pink Shutter Logo
Jun 04.2014
Pink Shutter was featured on Good Morning America (GMA) as part of donation package that was presented to the Urban Assembly School for Applied Math and Science. If you missed the segment or our blog post with event details and design, see it all here!

Our contribution included a 4 Hour Platinum Photo Booth Rental Package. With our highest package level, we made sure that the AMS Seniors experienced a Hollywood Red Carpet evening. GMA provided a custom backdrop image that set the scene with a red carpet and paparazzi. The booth also came with Awesome Party Props, a Basic Scrapbook, Double 2×6 Auto-Cut Strips and a CD of images.

Ingrid Chung, the teacher who reached out to give her Seniors an unforgettable prom, worked with Pink Shutter’s Graphics Department on custom photo strips. The design matched the Hollywood Glam theme of the evening with spotlights and 1920s-style fonts.

Check out the slideshow of photo strip prints and see more images in our Online Gallery.

#fwbnc: Food and Wine Best New Chefs 2014

oninstagram CxRA ZIMBIO

4.1.2014 | NYC

Every year, Food & Wine Magazine throws a soiree to celebrate their Best New Chefs. This year, the event took place at the American Museum of Natural History in NYC. The decor is always big and bold, and 2014 did not disappoint with neon colors and graffiti-style typography. Francesca Events Inc. planned the party, which was featured on many media outlets. Read up at CxRA’s The Current, Zimbio, and #fwbnc oninstragram.

Food & Wine chose to use our photo booth in its open concept style. Instead of taking photos in our privacy enclosure, guests stood in front of a Step and Repeat background that featured sponsor logos. Bring your own, or have Pink Shutter design your custom backdrop. The booth was also upgraded to include props and custom prints.

The photo border was customized with a black background, BNC logo and one large photo instead of our standard 4-Up layout. At no extra charge, you can request black and white photos, for a more traditional, classic feel. Check out more BNC snapshots in our SmugMug Gallery.
