This summer, VIP Balloons have been working with balloon companies across every major city in the world to help with the launch of the new IT company OATH:
OATH: is a subsidiary of Verizon Communications’ Media and Telematics division, that will serve as the parent company of its content sub-divisions AOL and Yahoo! Officially formed on 13th June 2017, this was top secret until just last week, when we helped the London office with their celebrations.
OATH: wanted to use the very popular organic cloud balloons to form a common identity within all the offices across the world and went on a hunt to find balloon artists who could fulfil their brief.
We were approached and completed the work over night in the AOL offices, just off Tottenham Court Road ready for when the staff arrived at work the following morning. With assistance from Danny, balloon artists at Balloons By Danny Marino, we worked through the night to turn a few boxes of uninflated balloons into four clouds of white and blue balloons. These organic structures use balloons between 3″ and 36″, there is no framework within the designs, simply balloons joined together to form these beautiful organic shapes.
These are designs that have proved very popular at weddings and this is the first time we have created them for a corporate event. These designs are flexible and can be made to form a simple cloud just a metre or two long, or something much bigger and impressive, like the ones we did for OATH:
