Laser Etching & Router Cutting

The Event Agency - Falls Festival Green Stall Award

The Falls Festival coordinators strive to minimise any negative impact on the environment during their festival they hold over the New Year. To reduce their carbon footprint, they have in place many procedures that prevent possible negative effects on the environment. One of those procedures is the ‘Falls Green Stall Award’; this initiative promotes environmental sustainability, while also rewarding the winner for their efforts.

We were able to design a perpetual trophy for this festival that incorporates the same values as their initiative. Our team put together a design, based around a reclaimed piece of timber. The block features laser etched details, and green acrylic that was recycled from one of our previous jobs to make sure this trophy was 100% made from recycled materials. The green detail against the dark timber adds a pop of vibrant colour. The side of the piece features the same green acrylic cut into small plaques, which allows the festival to update the winners each year.

Gold Coast Turf Club Trophy

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 - Hall of Fame

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.

Nautique Perpetual

Nautique contacted us back in 2019 to create a perpetual trophy for their distinguished Masters Waterski and Wakeboard tournament. The award was designed to be updated each year to honour the event champions.

The trophy features crisp laser etched logos, a beautiful walnut timber, milled aluminium layers and engravable plaques with enough space for 48 consecutive years. On top of the base sits the silver champion cup that is adorned with ribbons. The base features a recessed space on top so the cup can sit tightly on the base or be taken out for photos.

The size, weight and finish of the piece cannot be conveyed in photos. The final product was a real showstopper and we were very proud to be a part of this project.

Botanic Gardens - Signage Fitout

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.

Aquis Park - Racing Industry Awards

Aquis park had their annual racing industry awards in August of 2019, which celebrates the season and awards those who have been outstanding in their field. We were able to design and produce a custom presentation box to house a golden horseshoe, which was supplied by the client.

The box itself has been hand veneered, featuring laser etching and a laser cut filigree design. The purple behind the laser cut filigree really helps make the design pop, and breaks up the timber tones nicely. This piece also features gold mirror details with the client’s logo, to add a touch of luxury. Inside the horseshoe fits snuggly within the custom foam holder.

Norbit Awards 2017

We recently found this project back in our 2017 archives! We had the opportunity to put these awards together for Norbit, a multibeam sonar manufacturer that provides services around the globe. Norbit provided us with a sonar image of a seabed, with this in mind we were able to put together a custom design featuring one of their sonar map images, that is able to reflect the different depth levels.

This trophy comes to life through the use of layered acrylic and timber sections. The timber features the laser etched title and branding, and the printed acrylic builds up the sonar map depths creating a 3D map effect.

Contact us to find out how we can incorporate your field of work into a custom trophy.

Nautique – Dealers Awards

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.

Sound Society - Feedback Boxes

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.

Charter - Spectrum Mobile

The industrial design team at Charter Communications approached us with a concept they had in mind for a small desk size trophy. Charter Communications, Inc. is an American telecommunications company that provides services to over 26 million customers and is the second-largest cable operator in the United States.

After discussion and prototyping with our design team, a finalised trophy was put in to production. The final design features layers of acrylic, laser cut at varying angles is housed in a hand veneered box. The box features subtle embossed embellishments on 2 sides, and a black acrylic title plate on the adjacent side.

This design is aesthetic from all sides, due to the angles used throughout the acrylic elements.

It was great to collaborate with the team at Charter and to bring their design to life.

Amazon SaaS Awards 2020

We were honored to collaborate with Amazon on this project. Amazon Web Services SaaS Factory is the technical side of Amazon. It provides direct access to technical and business content, best practices, and software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions for their clients.

When it came to design the award, we started off with a solid piece of American walnut milled to shape. We then chose to embellish custom laser cut pieces of maple, to give it a nice color contrast and to add depth. We then finalised the piece by laser etching the award details.

Have an upcoming event? Contact us today to find out how we can showcase your brand!

 

Baptist Care - Sample Board

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.
