Great start to the 2018/19 wingless season

Brock was in awesome form for the start of his season racing. One would say he had wings not wingless.

In heat 3 he was positioned 6th and by the first corner was in 2nd position challenging for 1st position and he made the pass on lap 3 where he stayed for the rest of the race finishing in first position with a best lap time of 16.418 this was also the best of all the heats

The had a problem with the car in his 2nd heat dropped them to 4th before coming into the infield and shutting it down for the night even though

So proud of the way Brock drove in the first head it was home on Sunday and the preparation for this Saturday night is underway

They are racing at Valvoline Raceway Parramatta if your looking for a fun family night out come on down and say hello at the end of the race meeting come into the pits say hello meet the team and have a look at the car

Fresh Decals for Slam Engineering

We were asked by our friends at Slam Engineering to apply their brand onto their new Rav4 vehicles. 
Simple and smart was our brief

Lucky their brand was well designed to accommodate for any format, so were able to design the decals to fit anywhere on the vehicle body.

This product is specially dedicated to full wraps, wall wraps or complex surfaces. The combination of highly conformable cast vinyls and the HEX’PRESS technology offers high-quality results while reducing the application time. 


Luckily the brand rep was happy with our work! I think his smile says it all.

2018 LeMons car race design is hot!

Another year another lemon. This years 24 hour of LeMons car entrant for our fantastic crew from Millfields Turkeys in Stroud  is our best yet.

A fun play on Hotwheels was their inspiration this time, and I think that we nailed it. 

Love this design and it was sooo much fun to design.

What the heck? What the Hell!

Jolly fun with coffee on the run

New on the streets Jolly Beans Mobile Coffee!

Jolly Beans came to us with an existing logo but they weren't quite happy with it, so we enjoyed updating their logo

The Think Team had fun creating this logo- tribal foundations,

 
 

bright happy colours, floral and fauna annnd coffee how could you not.

 
 

The colour palette was chosen to reflect Marie's bright, happy personality. We also tried to implement her heritage in our logo design.

Once you meet Marie you'll understand where 'Jolly' comes from in the name.

When everyone was happy with the logo concept the trailer design was created

Fresh, bold and joyful - that was the aim

As you can see from the photos taken from Marie herself and shared on her FB page, the final design turned out great!.

Simple, clean and bright

Only the best materials were used for the installation ensuring quality and durability for the prints.


 
 
 
I’m beyond happy with the signage on my coffee trailer. I had an idea in my head and Chanelle and the team brought it to life. The service was amazing, always got back to be quickly with design ideas. I can’t thank you guys enough and I will be back for some merchandise!

All-new Swift is here

And it’s even better than before.

With its enhanced design, the latest technology, exhilarating turbo performance and advanced preventative safety features, this is the revolution of an icon that has already sold over five million units worldwide.

 
 

Design for the promotion

Our job was to make this great car seen for the crew from Kelly Suzuki Gateshead

To do this we ran the lettering on an angle to create some movement, in bright reds contrasting with the blues and black as it sat on the brilliant yellow background.

Large was the key for this design being a small car, and the blue has such a fresh, vibrant feel.

 

And of course the unmistakable Suzuki logo for easy recognition.

Hexis vinyl materials were applied to make this masterpiece look effective


Totally rebuilt and refined from the ground up, the powerful, distinctive styling features a low, wide stance and sleek muscular lines that create a bolder, more striking impression.


So step into the brand new Swift and experience everything that has made it a true icon — and more.

Design for the promotion

Eye catching, bit of colour and clean were the specs from Dean @Pacific Euro.

To accomplish this bold clean, crisp lettering was angled along the sides of the car, with splashes of Citroen's colour palette of blues and greenish/yellow

 
 

Love at first site!

The unique shape of the all-new C3 sets itself apart with a charismatic front face and generous curves which give it a powerful and energetic stance. Its smooth lines, its graphic signature and its colours make it a trendy and “pop” model. With the C3, free yourself and go with today’s trends!

Holden Equinox

Like you, this SUV has nothing to prove

The perfect SUV for real life

You can’t always predict what’s next, but who’d want to?

So Holden designed an SUV that’s built to have your back. Like luxury leather–appointed seats you can sink into in style but are also easy to clean. Or a panoramic glass sunroof to sunbathe like a boss and top up your vitamin D after a day in the office. And that’s just for starters.

equinox-car-promotional-signs-driver-side.jpg

Design for the promotion

Our job was to make this great car seen for the crew from Kelly Holden Cardiff

To do this we used bold clean, crisp lettering splashed along the sides of the car, in white and silver for high contrast against the red.


Fancy tech included points were applied to the rear and front of the car providing more details of the features the Equinox has to offer


And of course the unmistakable Holden logo for easy recognition.

A variety of materials were used- one way vision, clear printed vinyl on the Gerber, Avery cast and metallic, Hexis repostik all to make this masterpiece look effective

 

No fancy names, just heaps of great features to make every day easier.

Darby Street Butchers branded

Think carved it up with Kyle and Chanelle at Darby Street Quality Meats rebranding their image.

I know what you saying... another Chanelle!!! Well you wouldn't believe it there are not 1 but 2 Chanelles working there, so I felt right at home

Back to the story

The crew were happy with the bull and blue colours of their original logo, but just wanted it to have a bit more grunt and attitude. 

darby street quality meats logoname in circle.png

he was tough but not enough

darby-street-quality-meats-jerky.jpg

The Think Team also had to consider how the logo could be manipulated for the butchers meat tray labels and sooo delicious beef jerky labeling. OMG it makes my mouth water just thinking about it this stuff is goood. You have to try it!

So just the head of the beast was chosen, front on so you were looking straight into the eyes

We updated the front window keeping the image low to allow light and vision into the display. If you look up at the roof sign of the front facade you will also see the new logo standing proud overlooking the street.

 
 

Internally we got to have a bit of fun designing the feature wall

We noticed some old black and white photos of the butchers forever back in the hay day hanging on the wall. These had to be used in our design for the wall behind the counter. 

 
darby-street-quality-meats-internal-signs.jpg
 

The display cabinet has a static vinyl running across the top with whiteboard strips so specials can be hand written as they change, bit of a personal touch we thought. Inside the cabinet we designed labels for the variety of delicious meats they have on display, once again laminated with whiteboard panels allowing for hand written descriptions and ease of changing the labels.

Vehicle signage

For the vehicles Kyle and Chanelle were just looking for something clean and not too loud. One way vision micro perforated film was applied to the rear windows and Hexis premium digital printing car vinyl on the sides and back panels.

The Think Team design was a bit different to what you would normally see on a traditional racing vehicle.

Instead of using a script font combined with a bold letter they created a modern look to suit the young driver Brock Gardiner.

Sharp, dynamic lines, bold colours contrasting against the stark black and white background with highlights of clear blue popping at different moments.



Meanwhile the truck holding the Racer was kept to a minimal design.

Very clean and easy to read from a distance keeping the sponsors happy.


Brock 

Gardiner Driver

Having first stepped into speedway in  the 2013-14 season, joining the Junior Sedans class where he raced a Ford Laser, Brock Gardiner spent 2 seasons honing his skills in the class, with his time being high lighted by a third place finish in the NSW Title at Grafton Speedway, I what was only his fourth ever race meeting.

After making the move into wingless sprints in 2015-16, the 19 year old racer from Heddon Greta has gained significant experience, along with building on his confidence and consistency, which he hopes to continue doing as he prepares to launch his third season.

What do you get when you cross a cat and a lemon? A sour puss

Racingsigns.com.au were racing the clock this week as they had to wrap a car ready for the Lemons 24hr racing rally.

 

24 Hours of Lemons presents Australian endurance racing for $999 cars.

It’s a breeding ground for inflated egos and God like status… in their own minds. It's where Mercedes and Mazda, Toyota and Hyundai do battle for the glory of gloating rights.

All are winners if they make it to the end, which is the very point of LEMONS... To FINISH!!

 
 

With the rules the car is not a pretty sight to start with so we didn't have a great deal to work with from the beginning.

But we managed to turn a lemon into lemonade.

LOL Racing team- Nana, Snowy, Cletus, Rowdy, Shiny and Loopy bubbled with excitement when they finally got to see the finished result

 
 

How good are the gold rims!


A mixture of vinyls were used on the job, but mostly Hexis car wrapping film for it's flexibility and ease of use.

Splash of colour here and there, simple layout as requested, and there you have it a race car!

                              There are some crazy and funny designs entered 

 
 

A layout was provided to us but we tweaked it a little it to make the Hunter Galvanizing logo pop that bit more.

Diamonds are forever

It is rare to find such gems to work with, but we were lucky enough to help Diamond rebrand their office space and vehicle graphics.

Jodie and Sam were great to collaborate with on this project. They knew what they wanted which really helps with the decision process. You can see the ladies seated in front of our privacy screen we installed for them

 

It was a bit exciting as the ladies were wanting to surprise their staff so we had to do a secret squirrel, which I found out meant we were undercover. This meant we had to attack this under the protection of darkness so no-one would see us.

Now I'm not sure if you know it but it is pretty hard to get water to evaporate in the freezing cold temperature, so this posed a little problem for us, but under the commandment of Jodie our mission was accomplished before the sun rose

 
 

Entering the building we installed a wall mount perspex sign with their logo-clean, simple

Diamond design team created some great posters which we mounted for them on PVC so they could place them around the office walls.

 

 
 

You cannot rebrand your company without changing your vehicles!

So that is exactly what we did. Once again we worked with Jodie and Sam to fine tune their vehicle layout again keeping the design clean and simple.

The logo design was kept clean and minimal, using colour and the bevelled constructions as the visual point

Creating another dimension gives the logo a greater depth and more substance

This style was carried through the whole marketing design

 
 

The use of a mobile billboard was not over cluttered as we kept the vehicle graphics in the same minimal manner

Both the website and business cards carried this feel of clean space and strength

Pacific Holden has Courtesy wrapped up

Recently we applied new signage to Pacific Holden Gateshead's Customer Courtesy Vehicle. This not provides a great service to us the customers, but acts as a mobile advertising billboard as their happy customer drive around in this Astra.

 
 

The vehicle wrap was kept in same design as Pacific Holden's other vehicles 

This makes it easy to recognise and a memorable advertisment

 
 

Bold lettering, easy to read, a slight angle for a dramatic effect, and simple colour scheme with a band of red to grab your attention, is all that was needed for this sign to work.

 

As one of the newest Holden dealers in the Hunter Region, the friendly staff at Pacific Holden are there to assist you with any service, new and used vehicles or parts enquiry that you may have.

They boast a modern showroom and large display areas which allow customers to casually browse the great range of Holden Vehicles. Friendly staff are specialists who are proud of their association with General Motors Holden, are very helpful. They were easy to talk to and were happy to help out in any way even if it was just moving cars or cleaning the car for us before we applied the signs, and giving it an extra chamois so it was definitely dry for us.
