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.

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.

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 recently worked on an exciting project with Tributary Design studio to design and produce an award for one of their clients.
The award was designed around the 4 core values of the company with their logo being the centre-piece. The trophy begins with layers of printed acrylics in a variety of colors, in order to create a warm gradient effect. We then placed laser-etched timber on either side of the piece, introducing a softer, more organic feel.

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!

San Fernando Farms are a Californian family owned business, which specialise in making 100% Pure Organic Honey amongst other organically grown produce. To give their brand a point of difference, we worked with the owners to create hexagon shaped jar lids that correlate back to the logo and the nature of a beehive.
The lids are constructed from a solid hardwood timber that comes in varying honey-like tones. We branded the lid with a tactile laser etched logo on top. As the laser burns the logo into the timber, this ensures no matter how many hands have opened the jar, the logo will still stay pristine. We then created some custom labels for the jar to add some colour and contrast to the timber.

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.

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.
We were pleased to work with Yokohama again last year for another exciting GT3 Cup Challenge.
Staying within the Yokohama style we have designed in the past, we have incorporated materials and design elements based around the sleek but industrial nature of the brand. Utilising anodised aluminium, stainless steel dome bolts, and black japan stained timber, this piece portrays a strong yet elegant vibe. Each trophy displays the corresponding racetrack in an embossed silver mirror detail, as well as the white track name in the floating acrylic.
We love creating fresh looks that work within the same design style; we can’t wait to work with Yokohama again soon!
