Occasions when you need a media wall

Media walls, or photo walls are an essential part of any major event. A media wall that has been well designed can become a great marketing tool – it allows you to brand your event, to create your events theme, to encourage photo opportunities and most importantly promote the sponsors.

When planning a media wall avoid too many logos and any unflattering lighting and misplaced designs. All eyes are on YOU and your event, it’s important that you get this right.

  • Keep your media wall simple – they should be designed to create a good impression, but you don’t want them stealing the limelight. The purpose of a media wall – is to brand the event while providing exposure for you and your sponsors. Don’t use too many logos and stay away from any confusing or distracting graphics, less is more. A solid white background with fewer than 4 brands/sponsors is usually the best design choice for a media wall.
  • Use your media wall to put the spotlight on your brand and your sponsors – when having brand logos printed onto your wall double check that you have provided the right size and format for the dimensions of your wall. JPEG’s aren’t always best – the higher the file size resolution, the better.
  • Make sure you place your media wall at either the entrance to the event or in a spot that receives a lot of foot traffic this way you are sure to capture everyone’s attention. Photo walls or media walls work well with a red carpet and bollards to direct your audience where to go. Media walls can be a great centrepiece to a gala dinner or awards night.
  • Ensure that you have placed your media wall carefully. Make sure that there is adequate light – in addition to a photographer’s flash. Your media Walls’s impact will extend PAST the event through photography, so you need to make it count. If your media wall is to be positioned against a wall, ensure it has the proper backing. If your media wall is self-standing don’t forget to leave sandbags on the floor for safety and stability.
