Creative Tech & AV

Projections, light, mist, air, lasers, sound, producing incredible special effects

We specialise in the unusual! If you can imagine it then we can build it.

Be it a multi sensory attraction; unique standalone exhibit; interactive diaroma or a bizzare special effect; rest assured we will deliver the most creative effects imaginable... 

Creative Technical Design

Special Effects

Having over 20 years of experience creating mind blowing experiences, ensures your ideas will be visualised 100%.

Programming and Interfacing

Our coding and electronic experts pull it all together to create immersive illusions.

Visual & Interactive

From a simple touchscreen with inhouse game software to panoramic multi projector installations - we can create a perfect experience.

We create immersive, dramatic, high quality video systems. A recent example being the AV ‘Cave’ for Coronation Street, where visitors are taken on a walk down “the street” culminating in ‘stepping’ through a very recognisable doorway!

We can design and guide you through the best solution for your budget.

STAFF FOCUS: Tim DeCoste, Interactives Workshop Manager

Q: Name?
A: Tim DeCoste but they call me moose now there’s four Tims.

Q: What and where did you study?
A: Seaquam secondary school in my motherland of Canada. University didn’t seem challenging enough so I went to major in waterparks abroad.

Q: How long have you worked at Paragon Creative?
A: 3 years this month.

Q: What development / training have you undertaken since joining the team?
A: IOSH managing safely and the ever-important manual handling and fire warden training. And of course the sage mentoring of Jon Myers (Operations Director) and Chris Nuttall (Technical Director).

Q: Favourite Project to work on and why?
A: Dig It Dubai Springs. It was an achievable project that has resulted in a great success which is always a boost knowing the work our department put in to it, I’m sure others did OK as well. I also got to be involved in the installation, something I don’t often get to be a part of, luckily I still have my old work boots so I almost blended in seamlessly if not for my eloquent speaking and perfect hair.

Q: What do you like about working at Paragon?
A: Everyday poses a new challenge. It’s also close to home so that’s nice.

Q: Dream project to work on?
A: If we could do something ice hockey or maple syrup based I’d be very much in my comfort zone.

Q: What does your department do?
A: Builds big toys!
