We like to think were a pretty chilled out lot, and capable of performing well under pressure. Some might say we've got an inner printing, signage and display peace??? Okay we'll make the link to Yoga and meditation here. Our good friends at Christchurch International Airport had a wee project to turn a corner of the international departure lounge into a stretch and relax flight preparation zone. With legs crossed and our thinking hats on we came up with solutions to see the concept come to life. Absolute beginners to seasoned professionals will feel right at home in this fantastic space for yoga, pilates or meditation.
Here we feature some projects we have worked on with AJ Creative Glass. Over the years they have perfected a system that produces a very robust product. Combining their wealth of knowledge and experience, with our quality printing and attention to detail, every image is presented beautifully behind the clean polished glass. There literally is no limitation on what image you can use, it's all up to your imagination.
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.
In this blog I showcase how McKenzie and Willis are making the most of their windows to communicate with customers what's happening in-store. When you partner with Adgraphix we open up a world of options that you can utilise just as McKenzie and Willis have with this promotional signage leading into Christmas.
I am stoked to announce we won two awards at this years New Zealand Sign and Display Awards held in Blenheim. Anually all sign companies across New Zealand are encouraged to enter their best work to be judged amongst their peers. Entries are judged on their own merit and are given an appropriate award where deserved. There are no guarantees each category will have a gold winner. Congratulations to our customers Mr Mod and Harvey Cameron (client - Gough Group) for who we produced winning work. See the work below.
There is more to window and glass decoration than just etching. Nowadays etching is rarely done with sandblasting, but achieved through the use of self adhesive films. There is a huge range of window films that imitate sandblasting, commonly used with logo elements, striping and patterns to provide safety and privacy. Digital printing and profile cutting has opened a world of opportunities for some pretty cool window effects. In the samples below I demonstrate some ways that windows and glass have been decorated by our customers.
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.
Here is a great printing job we supplied for the Nando's Riccarton restaurant, which demonstrates printing directly to timber. The concept was to allow the grain of the wood to show through and become part of the graphic. This is a fantastic example of the strength of direct printing, and also using printing with white ink. The window graphic is a clear adhesive film. We used white ink , but not as a flood fill because we wanted a degree of transparency for the colours.
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.
