Pufferfish joined B and I's Anthon Greevelink and his crack-team of balloonists at the Westergasfabrik in Amsterdam as they delivered a stunning installation for the FD Magazine's Outlook Summit 2008. The PufferSphere XL perfectly complemented Anthon's comprehensive selection of Airstar balloons, and added an exciting new dimension to the breadth of his client offering.
When Renegade Lighting and XL Video requested the presence of a PufferSphere XL at a star-studded dinner to raise money and awareness for children's charity Shine, Pufferfish were delighted to oblige. Close collaboration with old friends and global video supremos XL Video and the gurus at Renegade Lighting ensured that the PufferSphere looked right at home in London's stunning Roundhouse. Show control was provided via our beloved Hippotizer V3, allowing Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir Trevor MacDonald amongst others to deliver their messages of support via the spherical screen. But it was the special Birthday performance from the effervescent and ever-so-lovely Lulu that set the hearts of the PufferTeam racing and spurred the assembled dignitaries to dig out their dancing shoes - with Secretary of State Ed Balls ably demonstrating that he's more than just a political mover and shaker.
Pufferfish were delighted to add to the party atmosphere when they rolled in on pioneering Glasgow- and London-based marketing geneticists Kommando for a wee house-warming party at their new country pile. The PufferSphere's unique portability and rapid set-up and strike makes it ideal for revolutionary guerrilla marketers like Kommando, who combine unique technology with experiential know-how, street savvy, and operational excellence to create killer campaigns. But this was a night off for the troops, a chance to savour a drink and dance a dance or two, or simply stare at the big glowing ball in the garden; so that's what we did!
Pufferfish were at Twickenham for the International Rugby where they puffed-up a 1.6m PufferSphere XL for the hospitable folks at can-do phone giants O2. The PufferSphere delivered bubbling blue branding and relayed video footage of the day’s matches above a scrum of supporters enjoying pies and pints in O2’s Priority Dome. Post-match the dome welcomed the heroes of the hour for interviews, cementing a once-only experience for the happy fans, who raised a glass of bubbles, under a bubble in a bigger bubble still. Brandtastic!
Pufferfish were delighted to be asked back to do more work with events specialist Urban Caprice, this time in helping them bring a little touch of Sardinia to the centre of London. Sitting above the sapphire waters, the PufferSphere acted as a 360 degree window onto the delights of the Forte Village resort, tempting guests with wrap-around images of idyllic white sand beaches, sundrenched pools and mountains of fresh Mediterranean seafood. Speaking of fine fish, on this particular evening, Pufferfish were definitely the tastiest thing on the promotional menu.
