QLD Government - Reconciliation Awards

The Queensland Reconciliation Awards recognise efforts undertaken by businesses, community organisations, educational institutions and government bodies that are going above and beyond their core business to foster reconciliation and pave the way for a better future. The Department of the Premier and Cabinet approached us to create an exciting new concept for the awards. Indigenous artist, Jordana Angus and Carbon Creative  developed this beautiful illustration for the event. The “artwork is an interpretation of what Reconciliation in Australia means to me (Jordana) and recognises the positive steps that businesses, organisations and educational institutions are taking towards reconciliation in Queensland.”

These exceptional awards utilise native Australian timbers with etched text and logo’s to highlight the deserving winners. The supplied artwork encapsulated within this trophy has been broken up into layers for added depth and intrigue throughout the piece. Jordana created so many beautiful elements and symbols in this artwork that we really wanted to highlight all the aspects of them. We wanted the illustrations to be the focal point of the awards with the natural timbers enhancing the earthy colours of the artwork.

AMAZON WEB SERVICES AWARDS

Amazon reached out to us to design and create a trophy that resembled an Amazon shipping box to award students at Michigan State University.

We utilised a solid block of hard maple timber which we printed on all sides to look like a real life shipping box! We printed everything from the corrugations in the cardboard to the iconic Amazon shipping tape and the final effect was an uncanny resemblance to the real thing!

We loved working on this project with Amazon. If you have a fun new project you want to bring to life, Contact us today!

IT Wizards - Timber & Leather Folders

The team over at IT Wizards contacted us to design new portfolios that would intrigue desired new customers. After the initial design brief, we were given creative freedom to create something fresh that would grab the attention of potential new clients.

We designed the folders around a variety of materials and methods to produce a unique look. The folders were constructed of a mid-tone timber to bring some texture to the folders. The timber was embellished with laser etching and coloured leather with printed logos. We laser cut parts of the IT Wizards logo to incorporate the white paper from the internal pages below.

This combination of techniques produced one of a kind point of sale material for our client.

We hope to work with IT Wizards on their next innovative project! Contact us today to design your next point of sale range.

City of Ryde - Women in Local Government

We were contacted earlier this year by the City of Ryde council, asking if we could design a piece of celebratory art for International Women’s day. We of course jumped at the chance to be a part of such a special project. This commemorative piece highlights all women who have served in local government, starting with the first who woman who served in 1954, Mrs Edna Wilde OAM. We also incorporated blank space into the design to allow for future female leaders to be added, as well as serving as a daily reminder to take action for inclusion and equality.

This multi-layered project highlights native Australian Timbers and bursts of colour throughout. The piece needed to be easily updatable so we have designed it with a puzzle like technique for future discs to be added by the City of Ryde employees. The striking etch of the first female Mayor, Mrs Edna Wilde OAM, really brings this piece to life.

Are you interested in getting a custom piece of wall art made for your office? Contact us today to start the design process.

The below images were supplied to us by the team at City of Ryde. Here you can see current City of Ryde Mayor Jerome Laxale and the first female Mayor and longest serving Councillor, Mrs Edna Wilde OAM unveiling this commemorative piece of art.
