Photo Collage Template - 4up-01.jpg

There’s nothing like starting the year off with a whole new look and Tint Design has done just that. Our factory has been freshly painted and presents clean, proud and ready to go! This face lift has given our team motivation to start the year with our best foot forward and we are ready and looking forward to what we can, and will achieve in 2019!

Living Coral - pantone colour of 2019 by Cassie Blomquist

Back off blues and step aside metallic flare, there’s a new colour in town and it’s loud and proud! Living Coral was recently announced the 2019 Pantone Colour of the Year, described by Pantone as “…Sociable and spirited, the engaging nature of PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity. Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression.”

We love the sentiments and hope that “playful expression” inundates the interior design world so that our newer printers really get a chance to show you what they’re capable of.

The design above is a new one that we’ve popped into our Catalogue to celebrate the announcement and we’d love to know what you think!

Designers who Tint with Tint Design by Cassie Blomquist

At Tint Design we occasionally assist on projects that are a little outside of our usual scope of works but we’re pleased to say that the final result of this particular project was worth the extra effort.

Elliat Rich’s Other Places – Mirrors were exhibited in early 2018 at the Sophie Gannon Gallery in Melbourne as a part of the Design Work 02: Elliat Rich, Dale Hardiman and Chen Lu exhibition, presented as a part of the NGV’s Melbourne Design Week. The works were also recently featured in the November/December issue of Vogue Living Magazine’s VLove shopping guide.

From the Artist: “Other Places moves intuitively between experience, visions and materials. It is what I’ve seen, and what I’ve imagined, furniture that evokes and/or embodies the landscapes of Australia. As a collection it off-sets a conceptual underpinning with a sense of curiosity and joy. It encapsulates accumulated observations, imagined myths, reminders of present wonders and desired futures, these are other places.”

Congratulations Elliat the final result was stunning!

5 Layers of Excellence by Cassie Blomquist

A few months back you might have seen that we added not one but two new Mimaki 5 layer UV printers to our machinery inventory and we couldn’t be happier with the quality of the prints we’re getting out of them.

Five layer printing allows us the ability to print two contrasting colour schemes visible on opposing sides of the same print.

This means that for something like a Safety Decal, for example, you would be able to print one colour scheme to be visible from one side of the glass that complies with the 30% contrast to its back ground and a varied colour on the other side to achieve the same code compliance when visible from the other side of the glass.

Another good example would be an entry logo on a glass door - design your logo artwork to be viewed positively when your visitors enter the room as well as when they exit!

Creativity is the key to this new technology and we can’t wait to see how our clients embrace the challenge!

Getting Creative with Acoustic Panels by Cassie Blomquist

More fun in the office!

As you can see above, acoustic paneling has endless possibilities. You can combine the product’s range of colours and thickness, and custom cut them to any shape desired. We wanted to have some fun and experiment in this space which has been a major success!

Acoustic panels are an extremely popular wall finishing solution and a vital part of many fitouts. At Tint Design we can turn a dull room into a statement one, by using our Vision Effex and Precision Cutting services. The design possibilities are limitless for creating stand out features from a practical substrate.

We love how this office turned out and we hope we have inspired you to bring out your creative side.

It’s time for spring racing! by Cassie Blomquist

Spring Racing_Image-01.jpg

We pulled these photos out of the archives, which was a job we did for the Spring Racing Carnival in 2017.

The private marquee in the Bird Cage featured acrylic panels to which we installed dichroic window film. As you can see from the pictures above, the film creates a harlequin effect which was a unique and colourful rainbow like choice for the 2017 Flemington fitout. An event like this is a great opportunity to be creative using bold and unique products and designs.

Be it fashion or interior fitouts, it’s always exciting to watch the Carnival to see what’s on trend!

Introducing Squid - a brand new product! by Cassie Blomquist

Squid-01-02.jpg

Is it a film? Is it fabric? It’s one that acts like the other!

Squid is a self-adhesive translucent textile for window treatment. Basically, it’s fabric that you can stick to glass, and it’s amazing!

This new product to hit Australian shores is from Belgium and bridges the gap between window film and blinds to solve privacy issues.

It comes in five neutral colours; Chalk, Bone, Oak, Ash and Rock which on their own are elegant and sophisticated. However, by teaming it up with our Tint Design services, we are also able to Digitally Print onto the Squid product to create custom and unique window treatments.

If you would like to see the Squid range or discuss it’s benefits further, please contact our team at Tint Design and we will be happy to come and meet with you.

Huge Success at Equinox 2018! by Cassie Blomquist

What a show! It’s the first time Tint Design have had a stand at the Equinox Exhibition and we couldn’t be happier with how it all turned out. We were present at both the Sydney and Melbourne shows and it appears we had a impact at both which is so exciting!

With Tint Design now providing a number of products and services we were determined to present as much as we could on our stand and in the end were were able to showcase printed and cut Acoustic Panels, printed Frost and clear films, Precision Cut graphics and some acrylic laser cut lettering.

In addition to this however, we also showcased some new products that have only recently been added to the Tint Design collection;

  1. Squid - it’s a fabric that can be applied to glass and it’s amazing!

  2. Five Layer Printing - our newly purchased printers are able to produce five layer prints. This means that a graphic can have a front and back allowing an image to be viewed on both sides of the film. But more about this later…

  3. Our FIRST range of Tactile Signage - while at this stage, we have only released the concept, the final product will be available very soon and we are SO exited about it!

It appeared that many of you were both interested in, and excited about our new products and while Equinox was just the introduction and an attempt to wet your appetite, you can expect to hear a lot more about these products very soon.

More New Printers at Tint Design! by Cassie Blomquist

Printer-03.jpg

While our current range of printer are still going strong, we are aware that to stay ahead we need to keep not only improving the quality of our products, but also stay up to date with new technology to increase our printing capabilities and product range.

Over the years we have brought you white printing, fade effects, printing onto a wide range of substrates such as acoustic board, composite panel and wood, printing and cut out designs and lately, tactile designs and Signage.

With our new printers, we are able to deliver greater speed and quality, but in addition to this, we are now offering, 5 layer printing!! Don’t know much about this? Stay tuned…
