A barrel full of monkeys is popping up in Old Market Square… Don’t miss out or you’ll get caught red-handed!

Run, walk, ride, or roll through the Exchange where inflatables created by local artist Paul Robles will light up Old Market Square. The curved forms will lead you through a snake-like path and make you wonder, why are monkeys building pyramids in the Exchange? Why are their hands red? Are they ghosts of a pre-pandemic social scene?

See Hear Speak was conceived of during the pandemic and is intended to interrupt the quiet of a once thriving gathering place. It is an oddity calling for attention, conjuring a magnetic contradiction that highlights and denies the human experience of contact, folly, and closeness. The playful shapes are layered with monkeys and meaning to suggest team bonding exercises, sporty cheer(leaders), religious divination, and even fraternity hazing. Echoing society’s current unease, the title invokes the proverb of the Three Wise Monkeys and how the threat of isolation and despair can lead to compulsive diversion.

The temporary inflatables, commissioned through Winnipeg’s Public Art Program with support from the Winnipeg Foundation and presented by Winnipeg Arts Council, were installed September 25 – October 3 2021 in Old Market Square.

Tallman.Promo is proud to have partnered with the artist on this project. Thanks to the Winnipeg Arts Council for supporting the collaboration with the artist and to True North Sports and Entertainment for the loan of production supplies.

From the initial design to the 3D models, from the LED lighting to the blower locations, this project was a delight.

Looking to raise the awareness and impact of their brand at their events, Kiwanis International asked us to create a 10ft high inflatable version of their logo. 

After enquiring with their local organizations in North-America and Europe, a volume order was placed. After we received the artwork, we made swatches of fabric to ensure we achieved the correct colours and our designers made a 3D model to be reviewed with the client.

About Kiwanis International

Kiwanis helps kids around the world. Local clubs look out for our communities and the international organization takes on large-scale challenges, such as fighting disease and poverty. 

For more than a century, Kiwanis has created opportunities for children to be curious, safe and healthy regardless of the community in which they live. When you give a child the chance to learn, experience, dream, grow, succeed and thrive, great things can happen.

We are all about teamwork at TallMan.Promo, so we were delighted to partner with the Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL) to help promote teams in the league’s inaugural season in 2019.

With six teams across Canada, the CEBL aims to promote the second fastest growing sport in the World, while offering a chance for Canadian talent to pursue a pro career.

Before the opening tip-off of the first game, TallMan.Promo worked with team representatives in Hamilton and Guelph. We have provided cheering sticks and custom designed flags. 

Our team was thrilled to play a role in ensuring that fans get the full, pro basketball experience while cheering on their teams.

We wish the CEBL and its teams the best of success as they continue to grow their league, their brand and their fanbase. 

Candice and Alison Events Group is celebrating a milestone 10 years and TallMan.Promo was happy to collaborate with the award-winning designers to create an epic event at Malaparte in the heart of Toronto’s Entertainment District!  We created giant 16ft high 3D custom inflatables of the namesakes Candice Chan and Alison Slight. The inflatables were perfect for photo opportunities and contributed to the larger-than-life event itself.

Shattered Glass
Hundreds of people gathered to celebrate Candice and Alison where they launched their first signature product - “Shattered Glass”.   It is a dry brut-style sparkling wine perfect for an occasion. Destined to create a statement, the eye-catching bottle is dressed with an ombre fringe that swings effortlessly as the wine is poured. The provocative name Shattered Glass is inspired by the precise moment the first glass drops and shatters behind the doors of an exclusive event.

Using hundreds of custom printed mylar balloons and vinyl floor and wall decals throughout the event, they kept the party branded and on-point.

A big thanks to Candice and Alison for this great impactful project and the wonderful opportunity to work for you. Congratulations!

The Toronto Pride Parade is a massive event bringing people from all across the province to celebrate pride. This year Tallman.Promo was happy to collaborate with Salesforce marketing cloud to create 3D inflatable costumes for their pride float. Salesforce was looking to add more impact and excitement to their float. These custom inflatable costumes were worn by team members at Salesforce and placed on the float to dance around and wave at the crowd.

Starting Point
For this project we took an existing set of 2D characters that were considered mascots for various salesforce campaigns and initiatives and turned them not only into 3D mockups but real life mascots. These can be frequently seen at professional sports matches and big events. Here are some of the examples working from 2D mockup to 3D design. Below you'll see the source files supplied by Salesforce in Vector File format.

From 2D to 3D

Our 3D designers use these to create the 3D files that will be used to create the inflatable costumes. We also use these for the approval stage in the project. The results will look like this:

Making the Inflatable Costume

Once the 3D mockups are complete we can begin the production phase and actually begin to create the costume piece. For Salesforce marketing cloud we were creating 4 individual units all with different artwork and specific pantone colours. Taking the 3D model we will print individual pieces with the colour directly on the fabric and then sew these pieces together to create the end result. The inflatable were delivered to the Salesforce office in Toronto and tested on the spot.

These 3D costumes work much like the traditional continuous air inflatables however they run on battery power and allow an individual to stand inside the unit moving around and engaging with an audience.

Inflatable Costume Instructions

To work your inflatable costume you should follow these steps;

1. Locate the zipper at the back or bottom of your inflatable unit.
2. Locate the backpack like structure inside the unit.
3. Place the battery packs in the given spots on the backpack unit.
4. Step inside the unit, putting your legs in the leg spots or bottom of the unit.
5. Put on the back pack, clip on all and adjust al straps to fit accordingly.
6. Turn the unit on by connecting the wires to the battery.
7. Zip up the zipper which you came in through (this may require assistance.)
8. Let the inflatable costume inflate, and enjoy.

Below are the end results, 4 custom made inflatable costumes produced by Tallman.promo and used in the Toronto Pride Parade. For your next event when  you are looking to create a unique piece and have an impact on a crowd consider a custom costume from Tallman.promo.

Thanks to Salesforce for the order and the sheer pleasure to work for you. For more information on our inflatable advertising options, feel free to check our site or contact one of our representatives.

TallMan.Promo  has produced countless custom inflatables over the years. For the most part inflatable installation is relatively simple – a one-man job. This enormous replica jellyfish that we produced for The Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa - complete with LED lighting – provided a bit of a challenge.

Normally, inflatables are equipped with D-rings sewn into the reinforced fabric so they can easily be secured to the ground with straps and/or stakes. A blower is used to inflate it. In this case, the massive jellyfish inflatable had to be hoisted up and hauled across the ceiling. The installer – dangling by a safety harness - used huge ropes to suspend it in the colossal glass enclosure called the Queen’s Lantern. As well, the inflatable has LED lights INSIDE it so those had to be connected and illuminated properly. A large task but well worth the time and expertise of the installer. It looks amazing!

This is a perfect example of how we can create a custom animal replica inflatable. We made it to resemble a species of jellyfish called Pelagia noctiluca , or a mauve stinger. The LED lights illuminating it help make it look spectacular at night!

TallMan.Promo has products ranging from small point-of-sale inflatables to inflatable tents to giant rooftop inflatables more the 100ft. tall. We have extensive experience working with clients from design phase to completion to find the exact size and shape of finished products to bring your idea to life. We have produced hot air balloon style inflatables, animals, musical-themed inflatables, archways, custom-made tents – nearly every size and shape is possible or we can suggest options.

The artist known as birdO took his street-art aesthetic and transformed it into his first monumental sculpture for the garden podium, an urban oasis above 150 York Street/181 University Avenue. His vibrant hybrid of animal forms and abstraction rose above the trees and brought the secluded space alive with a playful sculpture.

For this piece, the artist was inspired by the Kirtland’s Warbler, a small songbird that nearly became extinct just 50 years ago and is now on it’s way to recovery. Requiring large areas of dense young jack pine that was historically created by wildfire, today this habitat is primarily created through the harvest of mature jack pine, and planting of seedlings. For Nuit Blanche in Toronto birdO has transformed the image of this tiny creature into an epic sculpture, rising out of an abstract base. The 40ft high inflatable loomed large over the downtown core.
