March 2015

LΓ‘ FhΓ©ile PΓ‘draig Sona Daoibh! (Happy Saint Patrick’s Day everyone!) from all of us at avstrategies!

To mark the occasion our Toronto guys transformed their loading dock into a poster board with Irish imagery using outdoor projection.Β Including a 10th Century Irish Round Tower which was projected on a large smokestack, and an Irish Castle dating back to to the mid 1800’s, they finished the scene off with a cheeky Guinness onΒ the side and some Green LED lighting on the remaining stubborn snow!
