Digital Print - Vision Effex

New Design for April by Cassie Blomquist

Fern_Design-01.jpg

Nature has been an inspiration for design for as long as Design has been a concept, and our latest inspiration looks somewhat like a geometric ‘Fern’ that could add a new dimension to your office fit out.

Depending on your space and current furnishings the stark lineal approach to this pattern could offer a really bold contrast while at the same time remain in line with your company style and focus.

A Fabulous Five Layer Field by Cassie Blomquist

At the end of last year we announced that we had added two new Mimaki five-layer UV printers to our machinery inventory and we couldn’t be happier with the new scope of printing options we can offer to our clients.

The Healthy Grain recently took advantage of our five layer printing capabilities for a graphic on their conference room, throughout this design the logo is ‘positive’ on both sides of the glass i.e. no matter which side you are looking at no one is seeing the logo text in reverse.

It’s not just this kind of trickery that is achievable on a single piece of film that we love about these machines, the vibrancy of the colours, the range of colour density and their speed - Wow!

Geosmog - a TD Design at Work! by Cassie Blomquist

Geosmog-01.jpg

Geosmog is a unique design that can be found among our ever-growing list of geometric patterns within our Tint Design - Design Range Catalogue.

Used in this context, as a Privacy Band throughout a small office space, the alternating opacity within the design allows for privacy without completely blocking the view between spaces. A solid frost band can, in some spaces, close off an area like a solid wall which is great if that’s what you need but can be confining if your office space isn’t very big.

Moomba Festival Spirit! by Cassie Blomquist

While Melbourne is Moomba mad we thought we’d revisit one of our favorite graphics and precision cut projects from last year - Open Universities Australia.

The quirky interior design of this fitout saw every communal work space decorated with its own unique and striking Digitally Printed Wall Graphic or Precision Cut quote and stenciled graphic. Like the Moomba Festival, this fitout inspires creativity and champions those who shape our artistic and cultural landscape - it is through those who inspire that a new generation of leaders and entrepreneurs are born - and we love how bright, colourful and inspiring this project turned out.

Gliding through Summer! by Cassie Blomquist

With Summer coming to a end and Autumn around the corner, we thought we would celebrate the end of season with a new design.

We’ve been noticing natural and light graphics are a growing trend for interior fitouts, with the inspiration of the outdoors coming into working environments to encourage productivity and employee satisfaction. This was the inspiration behind our new addition to the design range called ‘Glide’. Digitally Printing white onto Frost brings out the tiny details that make this design so unique and lifelike.

Be sure to check out our Pinterest page, we are constantly uploading new designs on there every month with the hope it gives you some inspiration for your next project!

More Fun In The Office by Cassie Blomquist

Tylers Office-02.jpg


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!  
 

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!

creative design that inspires to learn by Liana Slussareff

The intended influence of design within Education spaces is that you are both inspired and excited to learn. We feel that our recent project at Richmond High School does just that even from the moment you approach the building. 

Full cover Vision Effex digitally printed film with bright, bold graphics have been installed to the windows on the Façade of the building making a striking entrance to the School. McCorkell Construction have maintained their incredible quality of design and construction for this project for The Victorian Govt - Department of Education and Training and it never ceases to amaze us just how much of an impact Digital Prints can make to a fit-out which leaves such a lasting impression.

We are sure that the current and future students of Richmond High School will draw inspiration from their new and exciting surrounds. 

Happy Chinese New Year! by Liana Slussareff

Happy Chinese New Year! 

Zodiac signs play an integral part in Chinese culture and can be used for example to determine one’s fortune for the year ahead. There are 12 Chinese zodiac animals used to represent years and 2018 is the year of the dog! Honest and loyal, dogs are the truest friends and most reliable partner, so not a bad person to have around!

With a New Year, comes a fresh start. A time to review your surroundings and remove, update or renew them. This may include your workspace or branding. It may be a good time to install some fresh new signage, create some interest on your glass panels with some precision cut or digital imagery or brighten your walls with wall graphics or printed acoustic panels.

If this is something that is on this years ‘to do’ list, please contact us at Tint Design and we’d be happy to help you get your year off to a fresh new start! 
 

Size Matters by Liana Slussareff

In the context of design, scale is the the broad term used to describe the relationship between two or more objects. In our everyday lives we instinctively use what can widely be referred to as ‘human scale’ which basically translates to how we compare things to our own size, for example, how many times in your life have you been in need of a tape measure and, without one handy, stood next to something and marked a point on your body for reference? “it was roughly shoulder height” etc. 

Populating our work and home environments with objects that are relatable in scale to our own size makes us feel instinctively more comfortable as our brains are not challenged by the disproportionate relativeness of multiple objects. That's not to say however that the uniform and ‘average’ size of everything is good design, it’s quite the contrary. Manipulating scale is one of the fundamental building blocks of being a good designer as it is with the creative and well executed use of it that can really make or break the design of a space. 

Emphasising or exaggerating the scale of something within a space will undoubtedly draw your attention to that area within moments of entering a room. That is why, within a good design, you will often find that the feature element of the space, be it an oversized lighting fixture or bold patterned wallpaper, is often situated where the proprietor wants to draw your attention first. With this in mind it was important to us to be able to offer our clients a diverse Design Range that can be manipulated in both scale and colour so that the end user can use our patterns as templates that with a bit of creativity and manipulation will transform into a unique design that is custom built for an individual space. 

So whatever your design situation, remember that the use of scale within the execution of a design can play a huge part in how people will respond to your space.
