Background

BlackOut design specializes in lighting and visual design. BlackOut design re-engineers lighting design and the scenic arts, harmonizing a wide variety of visual techniques and multimedia in order to create immersive multisensory environments. With passion and daring, our artists transform an interesting environment into stunning surroundings. BlackOut design strikes the imagination and stirs the emotions.

OUR BELIEFS

A creative visual environment generates an atmosphere and feelings that affect the perception of an event, a brand or even an architectural object. Perfect harmony between artistic and technical perspectives is what distinguishes simply great projects from the very best ones. An environment is successfully established when creative techniques remain indiscernible. This is when everything turns into magic!

OUR COMMITMENT

Atmospheres and environments created by BlackOut design will allow people to experience emotions they will never forget.

OUR REPUTATION

We nurture sustainable business relations based on trust. Our clientele has acknowledged our creativity and expertise for several years. So far, prestigious organizations such as the Canadian Olympic Committee, the Cirque du Soleil, Red Bull, TVA, Ubisoft and the Festival d’été de Québec have entrusted their projects with us.
