New York City is world-famous for having some of the most unusual sights and people in the world. So it took a little doing to create something that would capture attention in this borough of the bizarre. A giant, red, inflatable product replica did the trick!
It only makes sense that GE wanted a high profile for their new Profile™ washer and dryer set. During their event this past August, they hosted an auction in Times Square. The 40-foot tall inflatable product replica towered over the crowd and drew visitors to the event where they auctioned off a pair of Ryan Seacrest's blue jeans.
In addition, lucky attendees were entered into a drawing to win a pair of the new GE Profile™ appliances.
The designers at Landmark Creations had a lot of fun with this project. Recreating the washer/dryer took some time, but we managed to duplicate each button and knob with exacting detail. With subtle details like being able to "see through" the front-load windows of both appliances, these giants were exceptionally lifelike. It all made for a fun and highly successful event.
