We were aproached by the Campbelltown Shire Council to create this custom timber commemorative awards. The awards consisted of Australian Blackbutt, Tasmanian Oak, Red Cedar, Iron bark (Which was from a tree that was felled from the local Army barracks) and Pine which was a direct decendant of the Lone Pine from Gallipoli, sourced from the Inverell RSL. It was a great project to be invovled in.
We were approached by the QLD Premier’s Department to create an award for the QLD 2015 Premier’s Reconciliation Award. This award was to go to organisations helping to shape and improve the future of Queensland’s reconciliation. The ceremony was so they have the opportunity to receive their rightful acknowledgement through these prestigious awards. The Queensland Theatre Company (QTC) and Sibelco Australia have taken out the 2015 Premier’s Reconciliation Award for an all-company Indigenous Program led from the stage by the critically-acclaimed production, Black Diggers. We constructed this great stylised, layered and unique award to compliment the distinguished and important event.
The guys over at Endeavour beer asked us to create some custom point of sale for the beer taps at pubs and bars. So we came up with these Timber Beer Tap Decals which were laser etched and UV printed assembled pieces. Looking a bit industrial, but still clean and tidy; they’re surely bound to grab your attention at the bar.
We love doing different, interesting pieces. So when this job walked in we jumped at the opportunity! The guys over at the HAAN Medical Centre needed something for their lobby that included their branding, corporate colours and also to be quite unique, so we created this string wall art for them to hang. This 2-pack high gloss finish with the geometric shapes created by the string give a playful but clean look which has a great impact upon entering the centre. We painstakingly hammered each nail and threaded each string to make this look perfect for the guys over at HAAN.
We were engaged by the guys over at Press Garage for special project for Eat Southbank . The idea was to send food/drink sample boxes to people of the food industry & media world. This was partnered with an invitation to a special event held by Eat Southbank for their launch. The items produced for the project included custom made, joinery finished ‘wine box’ style pine boxes. These were partitioned to fit perfectly within the outer box to fit assorted food, drinks and nibbles. Each item had its own pine UV printed and lasercut label. Each Lid was laser-cut and etched, and each compartment filled with wood wool for a nice rustic look. The invitations were laser etched and cut for the recipients of the boxes. We are very happy with the result we achieved and look forward to doing more of this kind of work!
These cool custom interior menu signage boards turned out great for The Lamb Shop . Based at The Oracle in Broadbeach. Which is “offering a modern take on the humble souvlaki”; a great little restaurant with an amazing menu. This was fabricated in our factory and installed by our own team. Great effect of black paint with matte white lettering gives a clean & simple look. Black with the timber grain running through also a great subtle effect. This really works in the space it has been given and melds perfectly with the modern/industrial look of the restaurant.
We love getting creative with our projects, so when the Windansea Surf Club asked us to create a new trophy for them we were excited to come up with something special for them. When drafting this up we wanted to make some beautiful Custom Lasercut Trophies that captured the feeling of the glassy ocean. We love the colours that the custom coloured acrylic produces when the light hits it, it really seems to illuminate; really bringing the visual characteristics of the ocean to the finished product. The layers of acrylic add a nice depth to trophy and also give a nice weight (always nice to hold something of substance). Overall we are proud to tell people that these were designed, constructed, and finished; all on site by our team.
Well it’s nearly Christmas, and nothing says Christmas like the UV print custom build we got to do for the guys over in Southbank including; Custom designed and hand crafted chairs built at our joinery, then the inserts printed and cut and fitted in our factory, a one of a kind reindeer! Designed, printed, cut, assembled all in factory and transported up to Southbank for the Xmas markets, a very festive pattern uv printed directly onto the timber and mounted as facades for the Xmas market shops.
It looks like it’s going to be a great time as they’ll be having multiple events over the christmas period including the Stanley Street markets and performers and some yummy food and drinks to eat.
We have done some great projects for News Queensland, so when they asked us to create something new we knew it would be a good one! To coincide with the Courier Mail’s release of their new tablet edition app, which allows users to get the latest updates of the news and information; we designed, produced and installed this 3D promotional diarama.
This job included: A custom UV printed and laser cut lightweight x-board which had its own self standing brackets installed in the backs of all elements.A massive iPad vinyl printed and mounted to the floor, and ‘floating’ elements installed to the back stand.
The effect was great and created a lot of attention at the News Queensland headquarters. It looked even better in real life. This execution of custom print and cutting is a real head turner and can be used in many formats to suit many businesses; so we can’t wait to do this again!
Here’s a set of trophies we enjoyed making here at Potato Press. The large trophy is a perpetual award for the ‘James Slipper Trophy’ at Bond University. The small one is for the recipient to take home.
It’s always exciting when we are given more room to be creative with our job. So when the Pica Awards Committee asked us to come up with not 1 but 2 creative trophies we couldn’t wait to get started!
So here is the Environmental Trophy with a layered lasercut acrylic/wood combo to create the effect of water over land. And also the Progressive Trophy which is contemporary and visually striking (much like the work of the person receiving the award), made with coloured layered acrylic. Both were finished nicely with our joinery wood borders.
The guys over at Bass Nation asked us to come up with something really cool for their fishing competitions that they are having. So we created these custom layered pieces, along with some keyrings for the competitors; that we were excited to hand over to them.
