Belvue Runaway Bay - Finishes Box

We had the privilege of creating a stunning samples box for Belvue Runaway Bay. This entirely wrapped fabric box embodies the luxurious and elegant finishes showcased throughout the Belvue Building. Inspired by the essence of coastal living, we were able to include the beautiful pastel blue branding colours into the box design.
This custom finishes box features a crisp white logo and a carefully hand bound wrap case by our in house production team. The box features everything from tap finishes to wall tiles, if you have a development that you need a samples board for, get in contact today!

Nautique - Boat of the Year Trophy

Boating Magazine named Nautique Boats ‘Super Air Nautique GS22E’ Boat of the Year! Voted on by the editorial staff of Boating Magazine, this coveted award celebrates the most innovative and impressive boat model in all type, size and categories tested. The team at Nautique is extremely proud to bring home this sought-after award and wanted a trophy to commemorate this important accolade at the Miami Boat show.
 
We were able to create a sizable trophy, using geometric angles and gold mirror elements. The propeller in the centre of the award spins to create an interactive feature, while the black stained timber makes the red and gold details pop.
 
We are very proud to work with Nautique again on their awards this year and congratulate them on this tremendous accomplishment.

Olympic Medal Presentation Frame

We were contacted by the proud mum of one of our Gold Medal winning Australians, asking us to create a set of appreciation plaques that highlighted her sons achievements. We were stoked to be working with her on this project and are really happy with how the finished plaque turned out.

Utilising a combination of laser cut timber and printed acrylic features, this plaque showcases a replica medal alongside photos of the moments leading up to and just after receiving it. The frame also incorporates a portion of the Tokyo 2020 logo, to give it that extra special touch.

We loved working on this project, and hope to do another special project like this soon. Contact us today to begin designing yours!

 

GOLD COAST TURF CLUB - MILITARY ROSE PLATE

Our friends over at the Gold Coast Turf Club contacted us to help create a custom stand for their TAB Military Rose Plate award. The award pays tribute to one of only three Gold Coast trained horses in history to have won the Magic Millions 2YO Classic!
After we were supplied with the existing Rose Gold plate, we developed a base shape to showcase the plate whilst making sure the plate wouldn’t be too top heavy. To embellish the base we utilised laser cutting techniques to feature a rose coming through the timber. We also included a large scale laser etch over the edges to create a tactile and contrasting feature. Felt was also utilised in the centre slot, to prevent any scratching occurring on the plate.
We were very pleased with the outcome of this base. Contact us today to start designing custom awards for your next event.

Gallant Visual Maternity Sign

The team at Gallant visual contacted us recently to help produce a Maternity Ward sign to announce new baby arrivals. This piece had to be updateable for each new baby, declaring their given name, date of birth, weight and height. We were able to work with Gallant Visual in order to make this sign a reality.

We used a native Australian timber to create this important piece of signage with matching shelving for the acrylic letters. The sign also features laser etched details and text, which makes for great announcement photos of the new addition with their families. We always supply these signs ready to install, with all mounting hardware required.

Gold Coast Turf Club - Gold Coast Cup

The prestigious Gold Coast Cup Race day was held during May of 2021, and was a day filled with excitement and surprise winners. We were tasked with making a series of trophies for this exhilarating event.

These awards feature components of gold mirror, textural timbers and edgy colour accents that spotlight the event and the hardworking winners. We love working with the Gold Coast Turf Club to design and create these works of art for their numerous race days throughout the year.

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.

Alfred Whiskey Boxes

We were approached by Alfred, a Sydney based design studio, to help bring their design concepts for a whiskey tasting kit to reality. These boxes were made for the 2020 Diageo Special Releases single malt scotch Whiskey “Rare by Nature” range. The tasting kit highlights the eight whiskey releases, each with their own tasting glass and food pairings.

These kits feature a pale blonde timber which tones in with the deep red and gold of the “Rare by Nature” colour scheme. The box was designed so the lid slides off easily and is flush with all sides. Internally we have installed custom foam inserts to fit the supplied whiskey bottles and glasses snuggly so they can be shipped without the risk of damage to the fragile glass inside. Each sample is also clearly labelled for ease of identification by the user.

This was a great project to work on, and we hope to work with the team at Alfred again soon!

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.

Magic Millions - Raceday Awards

The Magic Millions hold a number of prestigious horse racing events throughout the year and we were honoured once again to create their new 2020-2021 awards suite.

The trophies were designed in-house by our creative team who wanted to represent the tools of the trade that are used in hours of training to get racehorses to award winning standards. Our team drew inspiration from the black leather saddles and boots that are a hardy yet luxurious material that feature throughout racing as a sport. Black leather feature panels have been recessed into the sides of the awards, decorated in debossed gold-foiled letters.

We were able to incorporate a native Australian hardwood timber adorned with a laser etch as one of the main features of this trophy. We have accompanied the contrasting tones of the timber and black leather with glossy gold titles plates. These gold plates match the gold foil debossed winners text that run vertically along the leather features.

A timeless design to last many years, these awards exhibit a multitude of construction techniques which radiate a highly refined finish. Contact us today to enquire about a custom design for your event!
