Why did Ventura County Star (VCS) newspaper print on pink paper October 1, 2012?

Last Minute Red Carpet Event for GenArt and Moroccanoil

Location: Vibiana: Main Street, Los Angeles, CA

Date: Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Los Angeles-based PR, Marketing, and Branding company Global Creative Studios Completes Last Minute Production for GenArt Fresh Faces in Fashion 2012 at Vibiana in Los Angeles.

GenArt—a company that provides a platform for arising designers, filmmakers, and artists of all types to exhibit and further inspire creativity—teams up with Moroccanoil to put on a fashion event in Los Angeles on October 17, 2012.

Global Creative Studios participated in the red carpet event services in Los Angeles with the provision of backdrop and unique step-and-repeat foam cores. GenArt deviated from the use of a typical step-and-repeat that consists of a vinyl backdrop and rigging. Instead, GenArt decided to display uniquely and eclectically Moroccanoil products and greenery on wooden displays with foam core boards that had each company’s logo printed on them. In addition, a huge 8 foot by 10 foot artistic display of natural scenery, enhanced by the artistic eye of the photographer and designer, fulfilled the role of the backdrop.

Global’s role in the event was the last minute printing of the logos on the foam core boards and of the large image on the 8 foot by 10 foot backdrop display, all of which can be seen in the red carpet photography in Los Angeles taken throughout the night. GCS specializes in planning and actualizing last-minute red carpet, corporate, charity, and any other type of event in Los Angeles and throughout California—at times even traveling to other states and countries to finalize production and see things through to the very end.

Entice Attendees with Special Celebrations or Showcase Your Business’ Products and Services

Global Creative Studios recognizes the importance of a well-planned and executed event and strives to provide accurate end results for its clients. Businesses are able to build their reputation as a well-renowned company and expand their clientele basis simply through a properly carried-out event. Clients are able to impress attendees at celebrations and ensure every person has an enjoyable time. Global is prepared to provide event planning and event services in Los Angeles, including venue setup, signage, logo and backdrop design, photography, lighting, music, sound production, and catering for any event.

Event planning is a multi-faceted process that requires absolute attention to detail—even to the most minuscule detail. An event can promote a product or service and highlight the positive aspects of a business. Events also include ceremonies, celebrations or parties, conventions, and any other type of gathering that requires any degree of coordination.

Event services included step and repeat, photography, lighting and rigging, sound production, video production, catering, venue setup, decorations, drapery, and more

Businesses benefit from putting on events that either promote other businesses and their products and services or showcase their own products and services. If everything goes perfectly, a business can gain new customers who are attendees at events. However, at the same time, a poorly-planned event has the potential to damage or destroy the reputation of a business. This is one of the main reasons it is important to choose a respectable event planning company.

With budgeting, dates, reservations, permits, transportation, décor, sound production, and many more things to consider, an event planning checklist can seem endless, tedious, and stressful. Global Creative Studios is, in part, an event planning business—in addition to offering several other services that meet all types of business development needs. Global Creative Studios works closely with its clients to create and review an in-depth planning form, which makes planning even extravagant events simple and easy for all parties involved.

Entertainment Television correspondent), Samantha Mumba (singer, actress: Legally Blonde), Sienna Guillory (actress: Helen of Troy), Natasha Alam (actress: The Women), Greg Finley (actor: The Secret Life of the American Teenager), Louis Mandylor (actor: CSI: Miami), Gilbert Chagoury (couturier: Chagoury Couture), Christiane King (couturier: Christiane King), Lauri Peterson (Real Housewives of Orange County), Rik Ducar (couturier: Rik Ducar), Jasmine Dustin (actress: Rush Hour 3), Joe Slaughter (actor: Step Up 3D), Kimberly Moore (American federal judge), Linda Koopersmith (organizer: TV series: Clean House), Manouschka Guerrier (chef: Single Serving), Scorr Elrod (actor: The Switch), Stefani von Pfetten (actress: 40 Days and 40 Nights), Stephen Bishop (actor: The Rundown; Friday Night Lights), Tolula Adeyemi (model, dj, actress)

Breast Cancer Charities of America benefits from the ingenious creation of Global’s CEO, Pedram Doustkam, “Peter Doust.”

Tarzana, CA, Los Angeles, CA—Breast Cancer Charities of America (BCCA) is a non-profit organization that brings the “integrated cancer care” message to the women of America—meaning unifying the mind, body, and spirit and bringing these aspects of the “whole person” to the cancer prevention, treatment, and recovery effort. Traditional care stops with surgery and chemotherapy, but integrated care adds to this with its focus on the important elements of nutrition, exercise, mind and body, social support, and a search for greater meaning.

Global Creative Studios, established in 2004 and based in Los Angeles, has substantial experience working with Breast Cancer Charities of America and understands and fully supports the importance of this cause. When Global Creative Studios was approached for BCCA’s fundraising event, CEO Pedram Doustkam, “Peter Doust,” recognized the necessity of planning an unforgettable event to gain exposure to and to raise funds for BCCA.

Once the event was established—hosted by Sophie Monk and Ashlan Gorse at Guys and Dolls Lounge in Hollywood—Global’s team of professionals worked to set it in motion and to plan and execute the red carpet event. Firstly, Global seized the idea of a typical red carpet and transformed it into that of a pink carpet to match the color-schemed theme of BCCA. Then, a fashion show was to be put on, but there was a significant problem—no runway exists inside Girls and Dolls Lounge.

Inside Guys and Dolls Lounge

Doust, CEO of Global, visualized a way in which the fashion show would be able to transpire within one of L.A.’s hottest clubs, which is meant for social gatherings, parties, special events, and private membership—not upscale, charitable fashion shows. It was essential that a runway be built, and Doust diligently worked for a week to ensure its completion.

The runway in progress

The final product of the handmade runway was spectacular and proved the hard work and dedication of the head of Global Creative Studios and stood as a physical manifestation of the assiduousness of the entirety of the experts at Global.
The fashion show occurred and featured designs from Chagoury Couture, Adolfo Sanchez, Rik Ducar, Andy Thê-Anh, Christiane King, Oday Shakar, Eva Franco, Eva Culture, Yotam Soloman, Trina Turk, V Rose, and C.Z. Falconer.

Fundraising 101

Fundraising helps, whether non-profit organizations, charities, religious groups, political campaigns, or disease awareness. However, some people fluster and overwhelm themselves with where to start or how to organize such events. We are here to help offer advice or help host events. Consider the following eight tips when organizing and fundraising for an event:


  1. To begin, pick a cause close to heart. Whether volunteering or working for a specific charity organization, choosing an association that’s personally affecting propels your drive to fundraise and makes a world of difference.
  2. Fully and explicitly write out the purpose and mission of the event and the ultimate goal sought to accomplish. Literally write this on paper, and distribute it to everyone involved. Write the event’s mission on white boards, Facebook Group walls, etc. This helps to destroy ulterior motives or pushes to go a different direction.
  3. Coordinate volunteers who are interested in the same non-profit or who believe in the same mission. Use family, friends, and acquaintances who show concern about the same association to help organize and arrange an event.
  4. Talk about money issues openly and honestly with the event’s main committee. Set a fundraising goal and a realistic budget (include a little wiggle room for unexpected costs). There needs to be an organized way to track revenue from ticket sales, VIP ticket sales, silent/live auctions, monetary donations, contributions of physical items, etc.
  5. Stay local, but think globally. A community may provide the best support, whether a big city or a small town. Aim to seek mass, nationwide recognition for your cause, but keep in mind that local resources personalize and unify a group of people.
  6. Don’t forget to reach out to large organizations! National charities and non-profits (i.e., Breast Cancer Charities of America, Autism Speaks, etc.), may offer their existing support team and resources, such as existing printed products, guidelines, social media networking blasts etc.
  7. Events are an ideal platform for recognition, publicity, networking, raising money, and more. Provide an additional incentive to attract even more attendees and honorary guests. Whether it is food and lavations, talent performances, celebrity guest appearances, free gift bags, gift giveaways, or silent auctions, incentives help to draw wide attention to events and increase interaction between those who donate and participate.
  8. The more the merrier! In order to increase supporters and participation, advertise to your targeted audience for the event. Flyers, invitations, website, billboards, and mass mailers all aid in marketing. Seek local businesses to help display flyers, spread the word about special causes, rally donations, or simply inform residents of the organizations within a community.

Fundraising and donations can benefit any organization by providing more resources, which creates more opportunities to pour funds into the ultimate purpose and mission of the event. Ensure the fundraiser you wish to plan enhances the cause of choice, and start towards making a difference today. Remember to stay organized, breathe deeply, and that if you run into any problems along the way, our team at Global is more than happy to lend a helping hand.

Global Creative Studios Promotes Nonprofit Organization through Red Carpet Affair

Location: Tesla Motors Showroom: Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA
Date: October 2010
Participating brands: Patron and Coca Cola, among others
Guests: Sophie Monk (singer, actress, model), Victor Fischbarg (actor: Fame), Annalynne McCord (actress: 90210), Annalynne’s sisters Rachel McCord and Angel McCord, Lori Loughlin (actress: Full House; 90210), Perry King (actor: Riptide), Reed Thompson (actor: Moneyball), Renee Olstead (actress: The Secret Life of the American Teenager; Still Standing), Heather Hemmens (actress: The Dukes of Hazzard; Hellcats), James Preston (actor: True Blood; Joshua Tree, 1951: A Portrait of James Dean), Cassie Scerbo (actress: Make It or Break It), Aaron O’Connell (model)

St. Bernard Project holds event at Tesla Motors Showroom as fundraising event for Hurricane Katrina victims

Tarzana, CA, Los Angeles, CA—St. Bernard Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to removing the physical, mental, and emotional barriers from the vulnerable people who are suffering and struggling from the devastation and trauma caused by Hurricane Katrina and the Oil Spill. St. Bernard Project creates affordable housing, creates living wage jobs, and ensures that individuals, families, and the community are mentally healthy and well.

Los Angeles-based Global Creative Studios provided the red carpet service for the fundraising event benefitting St. Bernard Project at Tesla Motors in Santa Monica, California. Some of the participating brands were Patron and Coca Cola, among others.

In order for St. Bernard Project to carry out its vision for this fundraising event thoroughly, the venue was in need of a stage. Global’s CEO Pedram Doustkam, “Peter Doust,” built a platform that was used for the DJ and music and sound equipment. Doust is known for his creativity and ability to hand-make anything that is necessary in order to implement an event smoothly and efficiently.

At one point during the event, the sound equipment failed that belonged to the production company putting on the main event inside. In a moment of havoc and chaos, Global Creative Studios, a one-stop digital studio qualified to meet all integrated business development needs, was able to reinstate the harmony after they provided the sound equipment and wiring for sound production that they brought along with them in their vehicle. The event was then able to carry on as planned.

Global Creative Studios is always prepared and one step ahead of its competitors. Had some sort of sound equipment not been provided, there would have been no music inside the venue; leaving only the noise from people’s voices.

Global was responsible for the outdoors, red carpet portion of the St. Bernard Project at Tesla, which consisted of designing and printing the backdrop on the red carpet and providing the pillars for the backdrop, runner for the event, and lighting for the photography. Global’s efficiency and accuracy allowed the red carpet event to run smoothly and for the attention to be paid where it was due—to the organization fundraising for Katrina survivors in New Orleans.

Tarzana, CA, Los Angeles, CA—In July of 2009, CEO of Global Creative Studios (then, Global Printing Studios), Pedram Doustkam, “Peter Doust,” received news requesting a full, red carpet event be planned in two days.
