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

Colour_Swatch-01.jpg

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.

A bold facade in the heart of Shepparton by Cassie Blomquist

It is with great pride that we can finally share with you one of our larger projects of 2017 - the striking south facade of the brand new Shepparton Law Courts that were officially opened on Friday March 23, 2018 by The Honourable Martin Pakula MP, Attorney-General, in the presence of the Chief Magistrate, His Honour Judge Peter Lauritsen.  
It was with great pleasure that Tint Design worked along side ADCO Constructions to realise the extraordinary vision of the south facade that was cleverly designed by the team at Architectus. Of the $73 million dollar project this incredibly detailed facade is the result of many hours of cutting, weeding, application and installation of hundreds of lineal meters of precision cut film to hundreds of square meters of glass.
After an extensive review of the building timeline and access restrictions it was decided that the entirety of this install would take place prior to the glass being installed to the building. The seemingly random placing of the seven different frit-pattern designs had to match their corresponding glass unit but were installed out of order depending on when the units arrived to the warehouse. This installation puzzle was just one element of the many challenges of taking on a project of this size however our production team worked seamlessly and around the clock to bring this one element of this exceptional design to life.

Royal Wedding by Cassie Blomquist

Ornate-01.jpg

May has been a very busy month for us, but not as busy as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. 

The Royal Wedding created a global buzz and in the spirit of all things regal we decided to dust off one of our original designs 'Ornate' and put it too under the spotlight.
Above is an example of how the design can be applied to both traditional wallpaper and Glass Panels.

Our design team are constantly coming up with new designs, we are now trailling these designs on Pinterest to see how our audience reacts to them. 

Afilias Australia puts our mark on their workplace by Liana Slussareff

Here is a great example of how our Design Range can communicate character in a room or office space, and in this case Afilias Australia Pty Ltd selected our design 'Pyramid' for their conference room as a Privacy Band.
This design with its alternating opacity levels breaks up the usual 'heavy' feel you get from a solid frost band, and creates the perfect amount of privacy without making a space feel confined. 
Although the 'pyramid' design looks impressive when digitally printed onto frost or optically clear film and installed to glass panels, it can also present a sophisticated look when printed onto traditional wallpaper or vinyl wall film.

Here at Tint Design we are generally well known for our services with window film and Wall Graphics, after all, it's where our business started. However clients continue to be surprised that we are also in the business of Signage. For us, it was a natural progression to enter the signage market as it overlaps with the work that we do and now allows us to create a complete, decorative, functional, or promotional package for our clients.

Recently we announced that we are now producing our own braille signage, however this is just another element in the list of signage solutions that we have provided for years. Digital, Precision Cut, statutory, directional, promotional, internal, external - we do it all!

Tint Design Teamed up with Clarke Hopkins Clarke to produce this recent install of 3D acrylic letters and logos to the exterior of Bendigo Tafe. It's clean, bold and professional and goes beyond serving its purpose as signage branding.
