der Rainbow Magic

Posted by Scott on 30 May 2012

New Zealand artist Judy Millar has been exhibiting more of her oversized works. Her latest exhibition is titled The Rainbow Loop. We worked with Judy and Bruce Edgar, where we did the printing portion of her work. This exhibition is still currently running at Museum gegenstandsfreier Kunst in Otterndorf, Germany, finishing on the 26th of June 2012. Unlike previous work where we printed digital versions of Judy's hand painted work, this time round it's a true interaction of paint and ink. We get a real buzz doing this type of work which gives us a change of scenery from advertising and commercial imaging. Here are some official words about this exhibition...

The biggest misconception is that a colour specified as CMYK percentages alone represents an actual colour. It would be wrong to accuse a digital printer for producing incorrect colour if the only thing you provided was a combination of CMYK percentages such as those seen in corporate identity manuals.

A Bit of Silver and Bronze

Posted by Scott on 9 May 2012

I am stoked to anounce that we have won three awards at the 2012 New Zealand Sign And Display Awards held in Wellington. The awards attract the very best work from sign and display companies across the country. It's been quite a few years since we last entered these awards so we are very proud to come away with this result. Last February when we were doing the finishing touches on our new signs and installation premises Christchurch turned into chaos. The earthquake certainly put a spanner in the works for us getting things underway smoothly. Just over a year on, our signs team has grown and are as busy as ever. We get a lot of positive comments about our building signage and flags so it was great to pick up silver. Below are our entries that were successful at this years awards.
