The switched-ON AV & lighting specialists
Back in 1995, Scott Cruickshank had a lightbulb moment that saw him switch careers from video and TV production to form Blinding Light, Sound & Visual.
Over the past 28 years, Blinding Light have become one of Scotland’s leading Audio Visual and Lighting specialists for the retail, leisure and hospitality sectors, both locally and internationally. Many of Aberdeen’s most successful bars, restaurants, hotels and entertainment venues have worked with Blinding Light over the years. Notable recent projects include Esslemonts and Union Kirk.
Scott commented, ‘We thrive on projects that push the envelope, often working with design teams and clients to push ourselves to come up with bespoke elements and new technology that their customers will see as innovative and unique. It can often place us slightly out of our comfort zone, but the results are very much more rewarding.
‘We provide lighting and AV installations for Abercrombie and Fitch in most of their UK Ireland and the Middle East stores including installing a 220 panel video wall in their flagship Hollister store in Dubai Mall.
‘We have also installed the larger key sites for local giant BrewDog including several DogHouse Hotels including the U.K’s largest bar at Waterloo Station which features 19 screens, two meeting rooms, a podcast studio, speakeasy and 6 lane bowling alley.
‘A large amount of our work involves consulting on lighting in customer facing areas to ensure venues just “click”. It can be a minefield since the transition to LED regarding dimming and colour temperatures but we can assist to get the best out of your venue and can take the time to explain why certain things just work when others don’t. The lighting and audio visual can make or break a venue. We take great pride in being able to design and install those to the direct client’s full satisfaction.’
