Proud of our Pride
Colourful lightboxes and banners champion Spain’s incredible inclusivity
Our manufacturing department crafted ten 1-metre square lightboxes along with high-definition printed tension fabric graphics featuring the chosen photographs, each backlit by bright LED illumination. The aluminium frame of each lightbox was powder coated to a matt black finish, to ensure that the attention of passers-by was focused solely on the colourful images within. Our dedicated team of installers fitted the frames at intervals along the wrap-around fencing of Belgrave Square, using bespoke hidden fixings and clamping brackets that delivered the illusion of each lightbox “floating” in mid-air above the railings. And because the lightboxes were situated outside, IP67-rated LED modules safe for external use were fitted, the illumination ensuring the building came to life in a majestic kaleidoscope of bright colour - especially at night.
Furthermore, we supplied several printed banners to span the length of the fencing below the lightboxes, as well as header banners positioned above the main entrance. Emblazoned with the messages “HAPPY PRIDE” and “PROUD OF OUR PRIDE”, the PVC-free banners featured attention-grabbing colourful backdrops and relayed dates of significance to the Spanish Pride campaign. These durable, weather-resistant signs offer a high-quality print finish to outdoor settings and can be reused time and time again.
From design through to manufacture and installation, we helped to deliver a picture-perfect backdrop to represent Spain’s inclusivity at what was a high-profile, internationally acclaimed event. Each of the printed elements reflected a snapshot of a diverse, forward-thinking society that is at its most colourful when its people are free to express their pride.
Julio Manuel Fenoy Muñoz, Deputy Head of the Communication Office, Embassy of Spain to the UK, enthused; “Pride weekend is an important annual event in our official calendar, a chance for Spain to be seen and heard in the important conversations about the fight for LGBTQI+ rights. I was keen to ensure that our offices displayed our firm support for Pride with a special spotlight on Spain’s inclusivity journey so far. The lightboxes captured that journey flawlessly in what was a truly stunning installation. Many thanks to Leach for pulling out all the stops on this project.”
Jordan Wilson, Business Development Manager at Leach added; “It was a privilege to work with the Spanish Embassy and Chamber of Commerce on an event with such significance. The combination of colourful lightboxes and banners ensured that we helped to position the Spanish LGBTQI+ story front and centre of the festivities. I hope to work with Julio and his team again soon!”
