+ LYFT CAR WASH | 5th ANNIVERSARY | LA | BUILD VIDEO

To celebrate its five-year anniversary in Los Angeles, Lyft wanted to find a unique way to give back to its drivers and the local community. So the ride-sharing service tapped its new creative agency of record, Wieden & Kennedy New York, to create a head-turning activation: painting the historic La Cienega Car Wash & Oil Change bright pink.

Wieden & Kennedy hired event producers Stoelt Productions to put together the program, which launched on July 14 and will run for 30 days. Lyft drivers who come by the car wash can get $1 washes, as well as discounts on oil changes and other services. Lyft plans to donate all proceeds to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.

In addition to the eye-catching pink paint, a nod to the color of Lyft’s logo, Stoelt Productions created signage inspired by classic Los Angeles car washes. Atomic Props & Effects modified the venue’s existing sign, creating a retro marquee sign using LED bulbs and neon.

The car wash is maintained its normal operations for the duration of the activation; Lyft drivers were directed to a dedicated lane by costumed brand ambassadors. Drivers were notified of the service through the Lyft app, and Stoelt estimates that roughly 200 drivers have taken advantage every day since the program launched.

+ BEVERLY CENTER RENOVATION ANNOUNCEMENT

Taking on a $500-million renovation is no small undertaking. Neither is making the announcement for such a project. The Taubman Company once again turned to Stoelt Productions to conceive, design and execute the renovation announcement event that would transcend the traditional press event format and convey the essence and design of the newly positioned luxury-brand mall. Using 3D architectural renderings and imagery as inspiration, Stoelt designed the stage to emulate the brand new LED back-lit, perforated, platinum bands that will line the dramatic and open skylights throughout the shopping center. Towering nine-stories above the streets of L.A., the project began with the installation of a London Bridge type truss on the roof to support the 4,000 lb. LED wall and also the 60' truss. With the outdoor infrastructure in place, over the next six days, crews worked overnight shifts to build the stage and set, concealing the existing and functioning restaurant. Utilizing the entire 7,000 sq ft Grand Court, gallery style walls erected to form the parameter of the event, which featured overscale prints of the 3D architectural renderings of the new center and the work of Italian architect Massimiliano Fuksas. The renderings which were covered at the beginning of the event were later revealed, following the launch video and announcement of nine new restaurants by celebrity chef Michael Mina.

RUBICON PROJECT | Automation Summit | Palos Verdes, CA - Revolutionizing the advertising industry, California tech giant Rubicon Project turned to Stoelt Productions, to design and produce four events, during the three-day Automation Summit at Terreana. To highlight product demonstrations, we created touchscreen demo stations integrated into freestanding walls. What made this event unique and challenging was a 40 minute changeover of the main session room that was transformed into two breakout rooms. To manage this request, we spilt the massive 12' x 40' stage in to two sections and deployed separate A/V and lighting systems for each room. In addition to the full design and production of this event, we provided four camera shoot to capture and edit the CEO's speech.
