Visiting Reefton

Posted by Scott on 7 December 2012


This is a cool project we completed recently. Next time you're headed to, or through Reefton, shoot into the visitor centre and learn a bit about this part of the country. Jeff and Jono travelled over for a few days to put this display work together. Check out the pictures below.

The Inner Binding

Posted by Scott on 25 July 2012


Here are a few shots of this job we recently completed on the Central Library Peterborough window. It's by renowned New Zealand artist Richard Killeen, and is part of the Christchurch Art Gallery Outer Spaces programme. We printed the image on translucent vinyl so it will be enhanced by the light from within the library.

Sign That Igloo

Posted by Scott on 16 September 2011


We took on the challenge to put large graphics onto this flexible dome and it couldn't have worked out better. The installation God's were looking over us as we had some fantastic Christchurch weather during the install. The self adhesive graphics (big stickers) were sectioned off into a jigsaw type arrangement as the tallest figure was 5m high and far too big to manage in one piece from a cherry-picker. As it turned out we're not too bad at jigsaws cause all the arms heads and legs ended up in the right spot! Dressing up Hagley Park incorporated a range of signage including, banners, flags sign panels and mesh speaker covers. This project came together brilliantly and wer'e pretty stoked with the end result.

Big, Bright And Can't Be Missed

Posted by Scott on 15 June 2011


We'll let the pictures do the talking on this one. Big wall, big mural. When Piko Wholefoods had their badly damaged Barbadoes street premises red stickered, they needed to find a new home. You'd be hard pushed to find a person who couldn't find them here. We printed this artwork a few years back for their old premises, but this version is simply stunning. It's printed with latex ink on self adhesive vinyl, laminated with gloss anti-grafitti film and mounted to aluminium composite panels. We also did the front fascia, street pole sign and lightbox.

Christchurch International Airport

Posted by Scott on 6 February 2011

                   Here's some photos and a great video that includes some of the work we recently completed at the Christchurch International Airport. These spaces look fantastic and the images create a great ambience. It pretty much speaks for itself.

Airbridge Action

Posted by Scott on 14 December 2010

        Christchurch International Airport have been giving the interior of it's international airbridges a big injection of life. Each airbridge has an individual theme including some spectacular photography by John Doogan with art direction by Strategy Design. The visual imaging is further enhanced by audio effects associated to the scenes. These are high quality murals and a sight to be seen. On recent flights I have been on, it's been great to overhear positive feedback from impressed passengers as they walk through them, obviously they have worked a treat. We are currently working on a 75m long Panorama of McKenzie Country due to be completed before the end of January. Finished so far are, Antarctica with penguins, West Coast native forest (above), Abel Tasman (below), and the Waimakariri River.

A Matter Of Perspective

Posted by Scott on 10 November 2010

                        This is a great example of using perspective. What was a once a dull stairwell wall is now a treat to the eye. We worked with International Buddhist Association (IBA) Christchurch, to bring their concept to reality. Some careful tweaking was required to get the illusion to work. We produced the image on ACM panels which are fixed to the wall. To help get your head around it, the bottom shot is looking from the top floor, showing the complete mural from ceiling right down to the tiled floor. The first image is taken standing back in the top floor walkway leading to the stairs. The illusion is an extended walkway.

A Day In The Sun

Posted by Scott on 29 October 2010

                     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.

On Demand Wallpaper Printing

Posted by Scott on 6 July 2010

                     What better way to show off a new product than a real working project. This wall belongs to brand and image magicians, Imagic. It's a recent project we produced for their reception area. The product used here is pre-pasted wallpaper. The best part is that it starts as a completely blank canvas. Put what you want on it then hang it like you'd hang any other wallpaper, how easy is that! There are a couple of other good points that might spin your wheels too. It's a totally PVC free paper. Of course to match that, we print it on our environmentally friendly latex ink printer. Other good bits are it's odour free, provides vivid colour, is strippable and is Class A flame retardant. So if you want to do something with your wall, you don't have to flick through pages and pages of samples... all you need is a photo or a file and we're printing.

Bring In The Native Flora

Posted by Scott on 30 March 2010

                         The new St Georges Cancer Care Centre was recently opened. It is a $16.5 million state-of-the-art, purpose-built Cancer Care Centre. We were involved with the internal fit-out which you can see in the following photos. Patients are greeted at the entrance by singing native birds from rock speakers placed in the gardens at the entrance. The sound follows them as they go into the building to the reception area where they find native forest murals and special lighting replicating the suns effect. Right through to the treatment areas there are visuals to entertain and occupy visitors and patients as they wait for treatment.
