E-mail Print PDF

Guy Pavelo on the visual design for the Drake vs. Lil Wayne 2014 tourGuy Pavelo of GPDesign.net was the production designer and creative director for the recent Drake vs. Lil Wayne concerts that toured arenas throughout the U.S. this year. He previously designed Drake’s performance at last year’s Toronto-based OVO festival and his Would You Like a Tour? 2013 tour. This design morphed out of what Pavelo created for Drake’s performances at this year’s OVO festival at Toronto’s Molson Arena. PLSN sat down to speak with the designer about how he approaches his designs overall, his knack for pushing technology, and about this tour, for which he also operated the lighting on the road.

Lighting programmer/designer Ken JonesPLSN recently had the opportunity to sit down with Ken Jones, a prominent lighting programmer and designer based in Las Vegas.

I’ve had the opportunity to work on a few events with him, and I always find myself challenging the boundaries of both my own knowledge and the limitations of the equipment when we work together.
