We have been lucky enough to work with the Gold Coast Turf Club on multiple occasions, producing a range of different trophies and awards, for their horse racing events. We recently designed a perpetual trophy for the Gold Coast Cup race at the Royal Randwick racetrack in Sydney. A perpetual award allows the client to continue adding winners for years to come, which is a great way to honour a legacy event.
Our team used a mix of materials and techniques to bring this piece to life. Layered and printed acrylic reveals the Surfers Paradise skyline, with the blue ocean hues layered in the background. The blonde Australian timber has pattern details laser cut into the surface to reveal beautiful gold-mirrored embellishments glistening underneath. Gold plaques line the edges of the award to provide spaces for the yearly winners.

Surf Life Saving South Australia recently contacted us to redesign their Hall of Fame Awards. These newly updated awards will be proudly displayed at their headquarters for many years to come.
The pieces feature a real surf life saving cap, captured behind acrylic, and framed by Australian native timber. The laser cut wave details add depth to the piece, with the laser etching showcasing the award recipient. Our production team did an amazing job finishing this piece, creating a silky smooth timber finish.

One from the archives! The 4217 fit out from 2017 was a very thorough project that included the making and installation of shop signage, building signage, and a mural that featured the brands mission statement. Ensuring that all elements tie together smoothly is something our designers specialise in.
The shop signage features stunning New Guinea Rosewood, with a folded opal acrylic light box to showcase individual branding. These light boxes were an interesting way to grab customers’ attention, promoting the businesses that reside in The 4217.
The main building signage utilises coloured aluminium panel embedded into a greenery wall to create an eye grabbing signage display and making the building easily identifiable.

The Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens were in need of a signage system that helps educate the public about native flora and fauna. Our design and production team were able to craft an educational, visually pleasing, and long lasting system that meets all requirements set out by the Botanic Gardens.
By using long lasting materials such as aluminium and a high quality vinyl system, these signs are able to withstand the harsh Australian elements. These materials were CNC routed in house to the design specifications given and used in correlation with a powder coated finish in order to match other displays throughout the park.

One of the more recent projects we have worked on for Nautique are the 2019 Dealers awards. The Nautique brand are always encouraging and rewarding their stockists and staff for their achievements and progress.
The trophies have been designed to be very geometric and angular, which merges in with the Nautique action sport branding. Through the use of timber, acrylic, anodised aluminium and exposed dome screws, this design provides a very tactile and stylish solution for any awards event. Having a gap between the acrylic and aluminium also provides an added sense of depth throughout the piece.

Our friends at the Brisbane City Council recently approached us again to create feedback boxes for their Sound Society event. These events showcase live music from varying artists, and encourage people to enjoy a relaxing afternoon. A simple design featuring the sound society branding was approved for production.
The production team were able to bring these boxes to life by utilising our CNC Router and joinery techniques. We then laser etched the sliding lid, and assembled to get the finalised product. These boxes are perfect to gain valuable feedback and suggestions from patrons who attend community events, so that considerations can be made for future events.

BDA Architecture recently contacted us requesting a wall mounted sample board for one of their clients. We put together a design that utilises their branding guidelines, as well as showcases the three colour schemes that will be available. This resulted in a large and beautifully finished board that fit all of the client’s requirements into one display.
For this piece we CNC Routed solid Oak, giving it perfect hand finished corners. The timber was white washed to coincide with the branding guidelines and give a softer edge to the timber than a stark white. The white cover board has printed titles that marry up with the displayed samples.
Sample Boards are in high demand at the moment! Contact us today to see how we can design yours.
We were super excited to work with the Magic Millions Carnival this year. Attracting global attention, this race meeting is one of the top 10 richest in the world!
The trophies that we designed for the Country Cup highlight the prestige that comes with winning the event. The elements featured within this trophy include gold mirror acrylic and timber, which have both been laser cut and etched. Another cool feature is the blue aluminium used in the shadow of the horse head. This was achieved using a process called anodisation, which gives the metal a very rich colour.
These elements come together to create a sophisticated and unique trophy, fit for a Magic Millions race win. We love how these trophies turned out, and hope to do more projects like this in the future!

We were recently approached by Gilimbaa to help with a creative fit out for one of the Shell offices. Gilimbaa are a Brisbane based company who specialise in strategic and connected communication design, for and with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. This office fit out design allowed us to work with shapes and experiment on our machinery in ways we normally wouldn’t get the chance to.
These room signs were CNC Routed out of solid pieces of Tasmanian Oak, allowing beautiful blonde tones to be showcased through the final project. We were able to incorporate a rounded more natural edge to give the shape a more organic look. Laser etching was utilised for the text and imagery, which has reinforced the natural and flowing style of this project.
This was a really fun project for us to work on. We accomplished some great results and learnt some new techniques along the way!

Mosaic Property Group reached out to us recently regarding the production of some new sample boards for their latest showroom. These sample boards are used to display interior and exterior finishes in upcoming developments. The design was configured around the idea that these boards would snuggly fit within their drawer system at the display suite and can be easily lifted out and put onto the counter top. With those requirements in mind our designers put together a fabulous concept, which brings life to a standard samples display.
Utilising our in house machinery we built custom trays out of solid Tasmanian Oak timber, featuring perfect mitred joints & easily accessible handles. The samples are arranged to fit within the box, and are bordered by an elegant white cover plate with printed titles that dictate what the sample is used for. These boards highlight the available finishes within the developments, whilst also containing them to manageable easy to use displays.

The Sound Society is a free event, hosted by Brisbane City Council, which allows talented musicians to put on a show for the general public. Offering laid back tunes, on site food vendors, and plenty of space for a picnic rug, these events shouldn’t be missed!
This A-Frame has been designed to bring a new edge to and old classic. The timber and print combination allow for vibrant imagery yet give a soft more organic feel with the timber grain coming through. These are a great choice for events, cafes, restaurants, and businesses that want to advertise their services in an eye catching way.

We recently had the huge privilege to work with the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland on a very special project. The Goddard space flight center has “More than 50 Goddard spacecraft explore Earth and soar through the solar system, collecting observations to be parsed and studied by scientists around the world. Goddard’s missions support multiple scientific disciplines, including Earth science, solar science and the sun-Earth environment, planetary studies and astrophysics.” (https://www.nasa.gov/goddard)
For this project we were asked to design and create an interactive award. The award needed to relate to the scientific nature of the center and also be structurally sound for the next 10 years, as this was to be a perpetual award. After much research, we decided to design a rolling ball maze game. In total we created two awards, the Science award, which was based around our solar system, and the Engineering award, which was based around the satellite missions that have launched from the flight center. The rolling ball maze game has been designed for a space marble to roll around a maze, through and behind planets, stars and satellites and into the center of the award. The maze can be quite a feat considering the award stands at 23 inches tall!
Besides the interactive maze game in the center of the award, this award also features 3D laser etched timber details, engraveable plaques on the sides of the awards for the winning recipients and gold metallic mirror details to give the awards a retro arcade game feel.
Our clients were thrilled with the outcome and so were we! If you have an project that needs some creative flare, Contact us today to find out how we can help.
