Melbourne’s first AIS Equinox event for 2019 was anything but a small affair. Not only did exhibitors exceed expectations with their stands and presentations, but the attendee record was amazing!

There was such a buzz in the room all night and it was great to meet so many new people as well as re-connect with many familiar faces.

For those who didn't quite get there on Thursday, not to worry, you'll have a chance to see us again at the Evolution event at the Carlton Exhibition buildings in October and for any Sydney siders make sure you drop in on us at the Sydney Evolution event in September!

As always, if you require any further information on any of our products or services please drop us a line at admin@tintdesign.com.au or book a time that is convenient for you and your team and we'll put together a presentation tailored to your interests.

A Classic Mother's Day! by Cassie Blomquist

A couple of weeks ago you may have seen a video of the above signs being printed and here they are in action!

The Mothers Day Classic for Toongabbie and Traralgon went off without a hitch on Sunday and we would like to congratulate all the participants who took part as well as the organisers for their stellar efforts in putting it all together.

This annual event commences with simultaneous start lines approximately 15km apart, one in Toongabbie and the other in Traralgon. Participants then walk either 6km or 9km towards each other to meet up at the finish line in Glengarry where there is live entertainment, as well as food stalls, and prize draws.

We hope that the colourful and inspirational Signs we supplied helped to motivate people as they past one every few kilometers on their walk or run.

A point in the right direction by Cassie Blomquist

We at Tint Design are well-known for our innovation towards exploring and discovering new media and ways to print and apply media to wall and glass. However, we now also provide a greater scope for artistic and creative applications for your workplace using design and additional products.

Wayfinding signage is the perfect solution to guide those who are unfamiliar with your workplace. While it provides functional, safety and privacy solutions, Wayfinding signage doesn’t have to be a standard and generic sign. At Tint Design we believe that while the signage should stand out, it should also work with your environment and compliment it, not clash with it. You want your signage to stand out, but not for the wrong reasons. Tint Design allows for all possibilities to get creative with this type of signage such as using different fonts, icons, colours, or graphics, to create a visually appealing effect within the workplace while also ensuring that the Signage is clear and easy to navigate, reducing confusion for those who are visiting.

Mothers Day Classic by Cassie Blomquist

The Mothers Day Classic is held to honor, remember, and celebrate those whose lives have been affected by breast cancer. These events bring communities together to raise funds for Women’s and Men’s breast cancer research.
Tint Design have decided to change it up a little with our donation for the month of May and used our designing and printing skills to donate inspirational Signage to the Toongabbie/Traralgon Mothers Day Classic event that is set to be held on Mother’s Day for its sixth consecutive year.
The signs were designed by our talented in-house team and are sure to motivate those who are participating in the 6km and 9km walk or run.

The Mothers Day Classic runs multiple events around Australia on Mothers Day, be sure to check out their website here for events near you or if you cannot make it on the day you can always make a donation towards breast cancer research here

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.

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.

book smart & design smart by Liana Slussareff

Library buses are a great community service that makes literature, internet access, and research materials accessible to regional or remote areas that don't have the population density or local funding to support a permanent facility. 

Recently, Yarra Plenty Regional Library teamed up with our friends at Kinart to created this bold design for their bus. By using bright colours and geometrical shapes the team at Kinart have made the mobile facility playful and instantly recognisable within the communities it visits.   

An environment or atmosphere can be particularly beneficial for children when developing literacy skills so having a design that is eye-catching and inviting allows everyone to open up their imagination and come into a space where they can explore the ever-changing stock the mobile library has to offer such as books, DVD’s, magazines and unique reference materials.

It was a pleasure to have worked on this spectacular refurbishment and look forward to seeing this beauty in action throughout the regional communities it services.

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!
