The Magic Millions 2YO Classic is an exclusive race held at the Gold Coast Racecourse every January as part of the Magic Millions Racing Carnival. The race is a 1200m sprint and is worth $2 million in prize money.
We created this unique and luxurious trophy for the winning trainer, jockey and owner for the race. The body of the trophy was created using a natural timber that has been laser cut with a wave pattern motif. Gold acrylic accents were then added to create a touch of luxury, which ties in with the prestigious nature of the race. The race details were laser etched onto a gold acrylic plate, with the winner details being etched into the body of the trophy. We incorporated the iconic Gold Coast skyline at the and a gold acrylic, laser cut horse and jockey as a unique focal piece.
We loved creating this unique, custom trophy. Contact us today to get started on your next project!

Hedges Avenue, also known as Millionaire’s Row, is one of the most prestigious beachfront streets in the Gold Coast. It is comprised of multi-million-dollar homes and apartments, showcasing coastal architecture and encompassing the Gold Coast luxury lifestyle. We were contacted to create these exciting finishes boxes for a new development, 200 Hedges.
Our in-house joinery team hand crafted this box out of native Australian timber, wrapping it with a custom fabric suited to the branding of the development. The logo was then printed on the inside and outside of the box. The box also included a removable panel with images and descriptions of all the materials to be used in the ocean houses. Underneath this removable panel, we included a physical sample of each material, so that potential buyers could take out and feel all the samples, making it a unique and interactive experience.
We absolutely loved creating this unique developer box! Contact us today to create your next custom project.
The Magic Millions Country Cup is a 1200m sprint race held annually every January at the Gold Coast Turf Club. The race is comprised of Magic Millions graduates only with a winning prize of $500,000.
We created this unique and opulent trophy for the winning owner, jockey and trainer, each in varying sizes. For this year’s trophies we drew inspiration from floral arches which are present at many race days. We were able to utilise a variety of materials to create the desired effect including laser cut floral details and a laser cut gold horse silhouette which adds a touch of luxury and elegance. The logo and text were then laser etched onto the body of the trophy.

This year we were asked to update the Nautique Presidents award to a new style, to reflect the design elements used in their boats. We were able to utilise interesting and eye-catching 3D geometric shapes, which ties back to the design details within the Nautique Boats.
The main body of the award was hand veneered by our in-house joinery team, and additional details and logos were laser etched into the base. Our designers were able to create a custom 3D model of the geometric shapes, that was embedded into the face of the trophy. To finish the trophy off with a pop of colour we added a uv-printed piece of red acrylic, highlighting the clients logo.
These awards were a real hit within our team and with the client. Contact us today to start designing your next award!

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!
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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
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!
