Connect Macquarie Park & North Ryde is a not-for-profit organisation managed by representatives from the City of Ryde, Transport for NSW and Connect members. They oversee the implementation of objectives to create efficient transport within Macquarie Park and North Ryde in a sustainable way.
Connect recently approached us to create some awards for an upcoming event to commend businesses that have excelled in the areas of transportation.
Choosing to run with our signature layered style trophy with acrylic and timber pieces, the acrylic was printed with different elements to create a 3D effect and also incorporated their colours and symbols for each category. The awards were then finished off with a timber plaque and laser etched details.

Well it is that time of year again and what better way to celebrate than producing some laser cut Christmas cards.
This is a previous job we did for River City Solutions in Brisbane. We designed, Printed and Laser cut these custom cards for them to send out to their clients. The layering turned out great and the intricate detail that we can get from our laser is always amazing.
The guys were stoked with the final product and so were we!
Over a period of 4 days, some of the worlds best surfers complete against local talent at Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast.
For the 2018 Burleigh Pro surf event we worked with the team at Surfing Queensland again to create some more unique trophies that embody the Burleigh headland vibe. The Burleigh headland is famous for its Norfolk pines and great views of the surf from up on the hill so it wasn’t even a question that these elements were to be included in the awards.
With a combination of timber that grows native to south-east Queensland and laser cut acrylic, the pieces were layered on top of each other and designed in a way where the award portrayed a 3D landscape. We were stoked with how these awards polished up and we look forward to working with Surfing QLD in the future.

Every year, Red Bull hosts and sponsors world-class athletes and events all over the world. On the 10th of November in Sydney, Australia, Red Bull challenged people to design, build and then pilot their own creations off a 6 meter high flight deck in the event they call Flugtag (‘flying day’ in German).
We were approached by the guys at Havas Sports & Entertainment Australia to complete this job for the team at Red Bull and were challenged to create something inspired by the companies’ signature style. The quintessential red bull wings were a must for this design, we also featured the cartoon style drawings that are also sported across Red Bull’s marketing campaigns.
Combining timber, acrylic and solid aluminium powder coated pieces we created this set of awards to embody the larger than life event that Red Bull has curated. We added accents of Gold, Silver and Bronze as a point of difference across the three awards, which captures your attention at the large scale the awards are produced at.
If your company has a special event coming up, we would be more than happy to help you out with designing some custom made trophies that embody your company’s values, so contact us today!

With many high-rises, new buildings and renovations being completed on the Gold Coast, a much anticipated project for the regions residents and tourists include the soon to be unveiled Jewel buildings. A project being completed by the Yuhu Group, they aim to produce these towers to exemplify elegance and sophistication with superb materials, texture, character and bespoke fixtures to create the ultimate expression in luxury and style.
In August 2018 the tallest tower of the three reached a significant construction milestone and celebrated a topping out ceremony where a palm tree was lifted to the rooftop. To mark the special occasion, DBI contacted us to create a bespoke high-end plaque to remain on the rooftop that reflected the style throughout the buildings, as well as also using products that were just as luxurious as the Jewel brand.
The finished outcome was a solid timber stand with a solid timber insert with the option of hanging the piece up by a D-Ring at the back if the stand is not needed. Each piece had a black japan finish and a brass brushed acrylic with laser etching.

For this project we were happy to welcome back a customer, Fossil. We have previously designed some trophies for Fossil but this time we were given the task of creating some timber boxes to house Champagne and glass flutes for their Executive Leadership Team.
Keeping true to their vintage and classic design aesthetic we wanted to incorporate the raw edges of the timber instead of coving them up. The final design also kept the natural look and feel of the timber with no stain or varnish. We then finished up with laser-etched text onto the lid.
