Laser Etching & Router Cutting

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!

Independent Brewers Association - Indies Awards

The Indie Beer Awards celebrate and reward brewers all around Australia for their hard work and dedication to their craft. Despite 2020 being a challenging year for all, the Indies were once again a success! These bold trophies signify a champion in their field, and are displayed proudly in breweries throughout the country. We have been working with the team at IBA going on 4 years now and hope to keep working with them in the future!
Utilising Native Australian timber, these trophies are CNC routed to shape and embellished with laser etched award details. The gloss red acrylic is a nice contrast with the mid-tone timber hues, while a black and gold badge is attached to the face. These elements come together to create a stylish award that truly captures the IBA spirit.

Nick Did This - Reconciliation Award

The team at Nick Did This reached out during 2020 to get two reconciliation awards created for their client. After consulting with the Nick Did This team, we were able to bring their design to life.

Through the use of layered timber and coloured cut-through sections, this trophy is striking and sophisticated. We used a stained native Australian Timber combined with printed details to create this piece. The contrast between the dark timber and light pastel coloured details really make this award pop! We are really happy with how these awards turned out, and look forward to working with the Nick Did This team again in the future! Contact us to work with us on your next trophy!

Western Australia & Tasmanian Racing Womens Bonus

The Magic Millions Racing Women’s Bonus promotes and showcases women throughout the racing industry and the vital roles they play. This distinction, which has now been running for 9 years, has been an extremely successful initiative.

The Tasmanian and Western Australian trophies reflect this esteemed program, our design team wanted to create awards that were both strong and elegant. The piece was designed to utilise a variety of materials including a glossy rose gold mirror and an Australian native Eucalypt timber. A minimalist racehorse feature has been used as one of the heroes of the piece accompanied by a stylised racetrack shape. An elegant rose gold laser cut has been embedded into the base of the award, framing the laser etched award titles.

Nautique Series Champion

The World Wake Association held the Nautique Wakeboard World Championships in August of 2020 with great success. It was great to work on an event again with the crew at Nautique & the WWA after a crazy year of cancellations and unforeseen circumstances.

These Overall Series Champion Trophies are simple, yet striking and utilise a variety of techniques in order to create this impressive finished product. Using a Native hardwood for the base of this trophy means it will be long lasting and add a substantial weight to the award. The trophy has been accented with laser etched details and pops of the iconic Nautique red. The final touch was adding laser cut acrylic, to add additional depth and texture to the trophy.

Congratulations to the talented winners!

Aquis Park Gold Coast - The TAB Wave Raceday

The TAB Wave and Aquis race days held annually at Aquis Park on the Gold Coast was once again a hit this year! The 2021 summer carnival horseracing event features a number of different races, showcasing the best of racing talent over two weekends.

This years awards once again pay homage to the Gold Coast culture, showcasing acrylic and timber surfboard silhouettes. Layers of timber have been mounted to the surfboards to reflect the waves lapping up onto the sand, whilst the clear acrylic symbolises the crystal clear gold coast water. The Aquis Gold Nugget & Aquis Gold Pearl awards include a resin encapsulated pearl and gold nugget in the center of the surfboard. These details create an interesting feature to contrast against the Australian timber elements.

These awards definitely steal the stage, Contact us today to create your next event trophies!

Granddad Jack’s is the first Gold Coast based Craft Distillery in Australia, focusing their talents on creating small batch spirits and liqueurs. Their distillery has won multiple international awards for their signature gins and coffee liqueur. Their exclusive Bailiff Whiskey batches are all single barrel releases, making them all completely unique.

Magic Millions 2021 Gold Coast Racing Womens Bonus

Successfully completing its ninth year, the Magic Millions women’s racing initiative has been a groundbreaking first for women within the horse racing industry. This accolade not only promotes racehorse ownership amongst women, but also highlights the imperative roles performed by females throughout the industry.

This years trophies were designed to reflect this prestigious initiative and showcase the sophistication shown throughout the carnival. Negative space has been left in the center of the award to create a light and airy gesture like the movement of a racehorse galloping when all their legs are completely off the ground. We designed this feature with the idiom, “run like the wind”, in mind.

We were able to utilise a variety of materials to create the desired effect. An aluminium inlay through the centre of these trophies creates an elegant and eye-catching feature. The silver horse motif has been broken down to resemble the different muscle groups of a horse. The use of deep mahogany coloured timber against the clear acrylic and silver elements make this trophy a distinct and high-end piece, perfect for all trophy cabinets.
