a colourful design for young bookworms by Cassie Blomquist

An exciting new upgrade for the children at Chelthenham Primary School library. 

This fun design selected from Tint Design's Design Range encourages kids to read for pleasure and engage in conversation with fellow students. Although in this context  this design meets its full potential, it is not only limited to Digital Print on clear or frosted film. Diversity is the key to artistic expression which is why Tint Design have worked hard to perfect their printing techniques on to products such as traditional Wallpaper and rigid medias like Acoustic Panels which will dampen sound and protect walls. This kind of flexibility allows for a graphic design to be carried through an entire space seamlessly and the effect can be breathtaking.

Any of the designs from the Tint Design catalogue can be customised, for example, by varying shades of colours and gradients to increase intensity or altering the scale. This kind of flexibility allows each and everyone one of clients to really own the design of their space and compliment its unique form.

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!

elegance meets privacy with casper cloaking film by Cassie Blomquist

As you may have seen on Tint Design's social media pages, we are now installing Casper Cloaking Film and we are over the moon about it!

With the socials having sparked a number of enquiries we thought we should share some more information about this product that will solve your privacy challenges without compromising your design.

Casper Cloaking film is an incredible solution to enabling total privacy of LED displays while achieving an open office space, this is an ideal solution for data privacy for industries including but not limited to: banks and financial institutions, executive offices, or  businesses with valuable intellectual property.

This type of film can be applied on to any clear or smooth glass surface with the option of Digital Print to compliment or carry through any decorative elements of your design. This is achieved by installing the cloaking film on the inside of the room allowing the digitally printed film to be installed on the outside of the room resulting in a customized look to any given work space.

We simply love how Casper Cloaking Film opens spaces while maintaining privacy, and we think you will too!

Award Winning Project by Cassie Blomquist

Bendigo Tafe-01.jpg

Tint Design were thrilled to be apart of the $18 million upgrade of the Bendigo Kangan Tafe Health and Community Centre of Excellence after being awarded the job via Hansen Yuncken as a result of the input provided during the design phase with Clarke Hopkins Clarke.

A beautifully designed space with a refreshing and clean atmosphere allows students to tap into their creative side and has a positive influence that assists with student success. This award winning design provides a professional environment that students should expect to experience when they enter the industry of their chosen profession. 

Although the design of this space is a stand out, the environmentally friendly details such as acoustic panels throughout the building, that assist with climate control and air quality, are a huge benefit. Also, the many sources of natural light create a healthy learning and working environment for both employees and students alike. 

Tint Design contributed to the supply and install of all of the acoustic wall finishings, optically clear white window graphics, custom made whiteboards and custom made directional signage throughout the entire building. The scope of this project and the multiple stages of install were a huge logistical undertaking but not impossible for the Tint Design team and associates. 

Tint Design would like to congratulate their friends at Hansen Yuncken for winning two Master Builders Awards and to Clarke Hopkins Clarke who were acknowledged in the 2018 Shaw Contract Design Awards for design excellence under the category of education and are now in the running for the People's Choice Award.

More Fun In The Office by Cassie Blomquist


Custom printed wallpaper or vinyl can immediately transform a space from drab to dramatic!

As you can see above we had a bit of fun dressing up the dull corner that is occupied by our head of production and as this is such a prominent space we wanted something fun but had to think carefully about our colour selection - here's why.  

As well as brightening up an office space a thoughtful colour selection can have a lasting positive effect on staff productivity. Although each colour has a separate appeal we thought we would look into the psychology of colours in a workplace and how they can benefit our production team in the long term.

The colour red, can encourage feelings of excitement that increases brain activity which is great, however when choosing this colour it should be used as an accent and not a feature as an over saturation of this shade is known to have the adverse effect.

Orange and yellow are seen as happy colours and can energise employees which influences productivity. Yellow invokes a welcoming atmosphere and encourages us to tap into our creative sides while orange breeds enthusiasm. Again however when using these colours they too have a more positive effect when used in moderation. 

While using blue and green help you feel calm and relaxed they can also create the feeling of sadness when using darker hues so it is highly recommended to steer away from including large areas of deep, dark, cool tones.

Finally, purple is a colour that creates a great impression when entering a room and is also known for encouraging imagination - a colour that we definitely wanted to incorporate in this design.

We love how this graphic turned out and hope that it inspires some of you to take a look at your own work space and see how adding a splash of colour within your line of sight might change your level of focus throughout the day!

A Classic Refurbishment In The Heart of Abbotsford by Cassie Blomquist

This spectacular 154 year old establishment is located in the heart of Abbortsford. The Park Hotel recently underwent a refurbishment that kept the rich history intact by upholding a modern day look inspired by a 1950's-1970's Australian themed decor.

Tint Design re-skinned the illuminated outdoor signs that are bold enough to catch the attention of its patrons but also compliments the traditional architecture found in this inner-city Melbourne suburb. Re-branded Signage reveals a business's potential to customers and can differentiate one business from another, however, the signage must be eye-catching and effective or else it will loose it's serving purpose. The inverted use of a of a single natural colour in this design is what makes it stand out, rather that the contrast of multiple bold colours that would act as more of an eye-sore than an invitation in this location.

Along with the new face-lift The Park Hotel is now also under new management which includes an exceptional menu and wonderful staff, and the two open fire places that have been kept as a feature will be so inviting for these chilly weeks ahead in Melbourne. 

Exciting work at the Royal Australian Navy Base by Cassie Blomquist

Last month Tint Design packed up two of their installers and sent them on a bit of a road trip to Nowra NSW to complete a wall graphics and 3D Signage install at the Royal Australian Navy base.

From directional signage throughout the base to the impressive photo wall and squadron shield in the entrance foyer, this job comprised of a number of elements - many of which could only come together at the final installation stage. While that is a common occurrence with graphics and signage installs, it was the fact that the installation location was more than 800km from our factory in Melbourne and at least a two hour drive from the closest domestic airport that meant the logistics of this project were more challenging than most. Every element of this installation was meticulously planned out and executed and we couldn’t be happier with the final result. 

Following an extensive brief from 723 Squadron Commander Bruce Willington, Simon O’Halloran Design prepared design concepts and production artwork to meet the key objectives of the project.

In order to deliver the high standard of finish required by both parties, and to deal with the logistics of an interstate installation, Simon engaged Tint Design to handle the production and installation. Tint Design produced a series of physical samples that allowed the client, designer and the Tint Design production team to know exactly what was required to achieve the final outcome.

“From my initial meeting with Tyler at Tint Design, I was impressed with their enthusiasm for the project, and the production ideas he brought to the discussions. Having a team like Tint Design involved every aspect of the project made a complex situation very easy, and guaranteed the best possible result for my client.” Simon O’Halloran.

To create the 3D signage there was a three part layering technique used that combined both laser-cut acrylic and Digital Print graphics mounted to router cut digitally printed brushed aluminium ACM panel. The combination of materials and printing techniques are a stand-out feature of this design.

Another Sydney success! by Cassie Blomquist

Once again we have moved out of Melbourne, this time installing our work in Sydney!

Teaming up with Contour Interiors, we achieved this highly motivating and stylish design for Care Super in Sydney. 

An open office space is an on-going trend which highly influences employee productivity and employee engagement, with that being said eliminating privacy doesn't have to be the only option.

Care Super's office fit-out is a great example of an open office space that still has a privacy aspect to it. Contour Interiors left it to our design team to create the final design which was carried throughout the fit-out on both clear and frost film. Both create the illusion of privacy, however still function as a open office space. 

Tint Design are forever exceeding our clients expectations and we are excited for what future projects may have in store!

Colour Swatch by Cassie Blomquist


A month ago we announced that we are now on Pinterest and we are excited to share that it is going off with a bang!

The inspiration and creative ambition that comes hand-in-hand with Pinterest scrolling allows us to show-off the many different skills and printing techniques that we use at Tint Design

Searching through trends we found that colour swatching is a popular way of showing colour trends that compliment the seasons or breakdown an inspiring colour pallet presented within a photo. From this we decided to would create our own colour pallets for our audience to consider. Our inspirations comes from places around Australia that our staff have traveled to. Each month we hope to produce a new colour pallet that relates to the the seasons around us as well as boast about Australia and its spectaluar landscapes.
