The Jefferson - Custom Sample-Boards Suitcase Style

We have made many finishings display / samples boards here at Potato Press, but this one was designed a little differently. It was created in the style of an easy carry briefcase that our client could easily transport to and from different sites she was traveling between. Created with a custom leather wrapped outer shell with subtle branding on the outside. We hand wove rope for the handles that were fixed into place with custom solid brass fittings cut in house. The case opens up and lays flat on its back to the viewer can browse through the samples. A lot of small elements add up to create one big impact with this one, we hope you like it as much as we enjoyed putting it together!

 

 

Timber A-Frame with Interchangable Letters

This was a cool little project for Brisbane’s City Sounds. This timber a-frame had interchangeable letters so the message could be updated and the frame could be re-used.

World Science Festival Brisbane 2017 - Custom Signage

The Queensland Museum Network holds exclusive license to host the World Science Festival in the Asia Pacific, reinforcing Australia’s position as a knowledge economy and igniting new and challenging discussions in and about Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). The Event had a turn out of 120,367 attendances – double what was anticipated.  247 participants and exhibitors from 10 countries showing all kinds of Science goodness.  So it was great fun working in conjunction with Sharon Penny some ‘sciency’ sculptures for both entrances. We used a varying combination of materials to create a molecular inspired piece, and a multifaceted crystal-like structure mounted to preexisting trusses.

Custom-Made Timber Espresso Machine Cover

A charming coffee house and restaurant located in Byron Bay, The Roadhouse features a menu of nourishing whole foods, gathering much of their inspiration and ingredients through sustainable farming and sourcing of the best locally-grown produce. Featuring a rotating daily menu of Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner items proudly displayed on their Hunter & Gatherers Board, The Roadhouse is an Australian staple for foodies, locals and visitors alike.

Tasked with creating a custom cover for their in-house espresso machine, we laser-etched the popular ‘Roady’ branding onto beautiful native hardwood timber, reflecting their passion for the use of natural materials. Adding classic joinery design and a simple laser-etched ‘Take Away’ under the custom branding, we are proud of our latest work for this sustainable, eco-conscious local business.

Coopers Aged Timber Tap Decals

Now in its 6th generation, Coopers Brewery is the oldest family-owned and run brewery in all of Australia. With a long-running legacy of quality beers, modern innovation and brewing tradition, Coopers recently released a seasonal run of aged beers, including the Extra Strong Vintage Ale, delicious Amber Ale, and Brew-A in honour of founder Thomas Coopers’ first ever beer recipe.

With a brief to create a custom line of beer decals for the Coopers seasonal line, we opted for an authentic, aged look by combining different timbers and finishes to create a layered look, adding depth and texture to the final product.

Drawing inspiration from the brand’s history, we proudly created the Coopers Aged Timber Tap Decals, featuring red and yellow colouring, beer barrel imagery, and nods to their distinguished presence in Australia.

Burleigh Brewing Timber Esky Covers

Here’s another project that required some problem solving, which we love doing! This time it was for Burleigh Brewing and their keg beer cooling system they use when they are offsite at events. They wanted to cover the eyesore which was the blue esky, so that the potential customers would be able to see something nice with clear Burleigh Brewing branding.

The cover had to not only look good, but needed to function and be easily setup. So we came up with this timber surround with laser engraved logos. We added a hinged lid and handles which aided in setup and access to the internal system while serving beer at events. Keep an eye out for it at craft beer events and stop by for a cheeky brew.

Display Centre Floor Plans Folio

This was a fun project we collaborated with Robina Group on for their Botanique Development. The aim was to design and produce a creative and portable floor plan folio that the agents could take with them.

We decided to make it out of a hardwood ply with the plans printed directly onto the timber. Then manufactured with layered elements to create an interlocking slide system. The whole system is also designed so that it is interchangeable. It turned out as a really cool way to display their floor plans in a unique and portable unit.

Pacificus - Custom Presentation Folder

Working with different materials and techniques is kind of our bread and butter. So we were more than happy to have a crack at this presentation folder for the guys over at Oliver Hume and are very pleased with the outcome.

The design of the cover is inspired by the work of Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. It just takes one look at his work and the influences are made apparent.
