As you’re all aware the 2019 rugby world cup is setting the world alight from September the 20th and with host nation Japan it’s going to be epic. Thinking about the world cup took me back to when New Zealand hosted the 2011 Rugby World Cup, and what a momentous occasion that was, and who could forget that nail biting final against France.
We love doing event signage. Quite often we get requests that require us to think outside the square, or use our years of experience to make an idea work. Sometimes a simple sign may in fact be more than it appears, considerations have to be made for the impact it will have on the structure once it's been removed. Our wealth of product experience makes things so easy. Here's an event we recently worked on at Horncastle Arena.
Once again we were heavily involved with the SCIRT World Buskers Festival held here in Christchurch. We've been providing printing and signage for many years and this year we are proud to have had our own stage - the Adgraphix Stage. We wanted to show you all the exciting printing and signage we did for this 2016 event - except we forgot to get out and take some photos. Below are some pics we managed to scrape together. I think the festival was so damn good all of our focus was on the entertainment and not our task at hand!
Check out this case study for Canterbury Rugby Football Union. The work was completed at AMI Stadium - the home of the Crusaders. We were asked to come up with fantastic solutions for legends banners (some good names to remember!) and work on the new “take a kid to footie” castle. Have a look at the details below.
Another festival has been and gone. Again we are proud to have been a partner to the World Buskers Festival here in Christchurch. It's an event we've been associated with for quite a few years and each time were tasked with producing really cool graphics. Below are some snaps of some of the work that we produced for this years fantastic event.
This Lincoln University display was about all things 'BIG'. From the super-sized chair to lifesize cut-outs holding big props, they all seem to dwarf the iPad plinths. Getting these structures to free stand required some creative thinking. We like a challenge and happily accepted the request.
We are stoked to announce our work being awarded 'Outstanding Exhibitor Display' at the recent The Star Home Show. This was one of our first projects since absorbing Display Solutions' product range into our already diverse lot. The project was a full design manufacture and install job with the initial concepts pictured here in full 3D render. Trade show displays have to meet targets set by the customer (foot traffic is a good start, or capturing contact details), so the design is structured to cater to those needs. See image at bottom for finished display.
Why produce a project with welds when you don't need to? When it comes to the really big stuff, most of the production in New Zealand is output on 3.2m capable machines. That means a lot of tiles and welds for a good number of applications. Welds are acceptable for the a lot of grand format applications, but for some you just don't want those joins if you can help it. Using our tried and true HP Scitex 5m grand format printer, we output onto 5m wide rolls of PVC banner, mesh and fabrics. This printer has been instrumental at bringing to life massive prints that are outside the abilities of the 3.2m printers, or for multi tile projects where it has reduced the number of welds required.
We hit the ground running with this one. The pressure was on to get this project completed on time. We had 3 days to turn it around. The job involved a lot of self adhesive vinyl, laminating, mounting, posters and some pretty big, double sided 3m x 3m banners and a couple of 15m x 2m. The team pulled together and we came through with the goods. A small hiccup saw a panel missed, but that was fixed by an early Saturday morning phone call and an emergency print completed and installed before opening time.
What a great day! We've endured a lot of aftershocks for nearly two months and this was a welcome break. It was a really good day as the sun shone, the bands played and the ground didn't move. The Band Together concert turned out around 140,000 people. New Zealand has some damn good musicians. Who would have thought The Exponents would be finishing a concert with Christchurch (in cashel street I wait) 25 years after it was recorded. For those who don't know what it was about... Band Together was a free concert for the people of Canterbury which featured some of New Zealand's top musicians. The purpose was to give Cantabrians a day to try to forget about their stress caused by the earthquake and chill out for a day.
