Behind The Design

Chris Ubinger

Chris Ubinger

President + Designer

With over 15 years of experience in event lighting and design, I continue to push the boundaries with stunning lighting and visual enhancements to clients around the country. Locally, I have designed and illuminated numerous privately hosted events such as Riverlife’s Party at the Pier and the annual Rivers Casino New Year’s Eve Party. I have also traveled with various touring productions where I spent time learning and growing as a design professional before choosing to bring my expertise back to my hometown of Pittsburgh.

When designing your event, my philosophy is to meet with you, listen to your thoughts, then work with you to create a distinctive experience. Through the entire process, I strive to guide you in the right direction and alleviate the stress that comes with planning an event. I am always researching the latest trends and aim to stay ahead of the curve, offering the most current and modern lighting and design ideas.
