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!
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.

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!

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!

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.
Due to the handcrafted nature of the whiskey, the team at Granddad Jack’s wanted a label to match these limited run releases. The bottle features a custom black leather label with laser-etched textural elements to showcase the brand. These tactile elements tie in nicely with the black hand waxed seal that encapsulates the bottle.
The outcome was modern and sophisticated. Contact us today to organise your custom branding!

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.

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.

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.
