Introducing Squid - a brand new product! by Cassie Blomquist

Squid-01.jpg

Is it a film? Is it fabric? It’s one that acts like the other!

Squid is a self-adhesive translucent textile for window treatment. Basically, it’s fabric that you can stick to glass, and it’s amazing!

This new product to hit Australian shores is from Belgium and bridges the gap between window film and blinds to solve privacy issues.

It comes in five neutral colours; Chalk, Bone, Oak, Ash and Rock which on their own are elegant and sophisticated. However, by teaming it up with our Tint Design services, we are also able to Digitally Print onto the Squid product to create custom and unique window treatments.

If you would like to see the Squid range or discuss it’s benefits further, please contact our team at Tint Design and we will be happy to come and meet with you.

Huge Success at Equinox 2018! by Cassie Blomquist

What a show! It’s the first time Tint Design have had a stand at the Equinox Exhibition and we couldn’t be happier with how it all turned out. We were present at both the Sydney and Melbourne shows and it appears we had a impact at both which is so exciting!

With Tint Design now providing a number of products and services we were determined to present as much as we could on our stand and in the end were were able to showcase printed and cut Acoustic Panels, printed Frost and clear films, Precision Cut graphics and some acrylic laser cut lettering.

In addition to this however, we also showcased some new products that have only recently been added to the Tint Design collection;

  1. Squid - it’s a fabric that can be applied to glass and it’s amazing!

  2. Five Layer Printing - our newly purchased printers are able to produce five layer prints. This means that a graphic can have a front and back allowing an image to be viewed on both sides of the film. But more about this later…

  3. Our FIRST range of Tactile Signage - while at this stage, we have only released the concept, the final product will be available very soon and we are SO exited about it!

It appeared that many of you were both interested in, and excited about our new products and while Equinox was just the introduction and an attempt to wet your appetite, you can expect to hear a lot more about these products very soon.

A Homey Atmosphere for the Residents at Melville Aged Care by Cassie Blomquist

Photo Collage Template - 3up-01.jpg

The inspiration for this fitout was to create a feeling of warmth and comfort where residents can relax in a homey atmosphere and steer away from the typical ‘hospital look’.

Tint Design collaborated with BFN Developments to deliver a friendly and welcoming environment for residents to live in. This was achieved by Digitally Printing a white ink silhouette onto optically clear film. This feature window separates the dining area from the kitchen prep area but connects the two making them look fun and interesting rather than merely functional.

Over the years we have brought you white printing, fade effects, printing onto a wide range of substrates such as acoustic board, composite panel and wood, printing and cut out designs and lately, tactile designs and Signage.

With our new printers, we are able to deliver greater speed and quality, but in addition to this, we are now offering, 5 layer printing!! Don’t know much about this? Stay tuned…

Jumping into Spring with a New Design by Cassie Blomquist

New design - Creeper-01.jpg

We’ve been noticing a lot of Designs lately including foliage, so, we’ve come up with one of our own. Our ‘Creeper Leaves’ design has been released onto Pinterest along with a couple of other new designs, ‘Monstera’ and ‘Foliage’, which have also been inspired by the ‘leafy’ trend.

We find these types of designs quite versatile and classic, being able to blend nicely within a fitout without the risk of dating too quickly. There are so many design possibilities within this genre and therefore, if one of ours isn’t what you’re after, our design team are happy to work with you to develop the look you desire.

Tint Design at work! by Cassie Blomquist

At a recent install for We Make Online Videos our client had a bit of fun documenting the installation process and we think it’s a great showcase of some of the products and services we can offer your fitout.

The install included two digitally printed Acoustic walls, a precision cut Digital Print wall graphic, digitally printed logos on frost for their entry doors, and digitally printed graphics on optically clear film to create a subtle Privacy Band. It’s great to see our expert staff at work installing different finishes to a space that are as practical as they are decorative. The acoustic panels, for example, were chosen not only as a soft decorative finish but to combat an acoustic challenge the client had between two of their office spaces.

For more information on any of these products or to chat about how we can solve some of the design wishes you have to give your work space a facelift then contact us today or check out our socials for more design inspiration.

new addition to our design range by Cassie Blomquist

 As you may be aware, Tint Design have been testing new designs on our Pinterest page and we are already getting terrific reactions to them.

One of our latest designs is our 'HexPath' design which features above. In this graphic we have presented it as a dark wall paper design which creates a dramatic effect. Of course this design can be used in a variety of ways by changing the colour or scale but also, as it is a vector design, it can also be utilised with our Precision Cut service opening the possibilities up to a variety of films and applications.

We are only at the beginning of expanding our Design Range, so please follow us on Pinterest to keep up to date with our latest design releases and we'll work hard to provide your with an extensive variety.

Gradient Fade a popular design choice by Cassie Blomquist

Glass_Panels-01.jpg

A popular design choice for privacy bands through glass partition fitouts is the classic gradient fade. Many clients over the years have submitted artwork that uses this technique and as often as we see it we know that it is, without a doubt, one of the best design options for most work spaces, and here is why.

Gradient fades can solve many client issues using the one design. In many cases a graphic privacy band is requested throughout an office fitout to mask boardroom windows, provide office privacy or simply hide unsightly views such as office furniture. Solving one of these problems is fine but when trying to solve a number of these issues within the same space it can hinder the creative process, for example a full height solid ink graphic would solve a masking issue but be too intense in a boardroom environment. 

This is where a good gradient design comes into play. 

With the fade out starting at the correct height a gradient fade can be purposely heavier on the opacity where you need to mask a view but then fade out to optically clear in order to still allow light into a room and not make the space feel too enclosed. It also provides a softer finish at the border rather that a solid edge that a frost film band would have.

The options available with gradient fades are truly endless, so to minimise the enormity of the task we’ve narrowed the option field with a small range of gradient fades to choose from however each one, as with any option in the Tint Design's Design Range, is completely customisable to suit your space and style.

Same Same but Different by Cassie Blomquist

Here's an interesting example of a before and after snapped by one of our in-house installers.

At a recent install for an office fit out we replaced the building compliance safety decals on their central  boardroom with a 1500mm band of frosted film and it's a great example of how window film can be used as a cost effective non-permanent room divider.

The beauty of using film products to transform your space is that over time when either your taste or budget changes you can easily remove and replace the existing for a dramatic change that can be completed in the blink of an eye!
