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.
