  1. Personalizing the Opera House

    Have you seen the Opera House right now at night? It is spectacular with a capital S. We thought after being in our industry for so long and having been involved in all types of events that we would have seen it all and that we would know a thing or two about personalizing things and products. In case you missed it, here are images of what the Sydney Opera House looks like at night.

  2. 50 Shades of Google Blue

    Colour may dramatically change the way we perceive things. Google realised this when it had a $200 million increase in revenue simply by changing the shade of blue colour on its online advertising network. When it comes to designing things like logos and the visual way that internet content looks small changes can and will lead to a dramatically different perception by viewers.

    Creative Design Vs Big Data Sampling

    Designers love going with current trends to make things look contemporary, clean and modern. At times though the process of making things look good may get in the way of practicality or in this instance by Google it effected revenue.

  3. Amazing Promotional Packaging for Products

    The presentation of a product is extremely important. Even products that seemingly are simple or even cheap are instantly transformed into something quite special and quite desirable. We have collected some great examples here. Some of these are concepts only whilst others are in production.

    There is one common feature in what makes packaging appealing. The really interesting ones incorporate functionality with graphics and motifs that resemble a totally different thing. Take for example these shopping bags promoting healthy food. The cut out window below is in the shape of a colon inside your stomach.

  5. Custom Coffee Cups Redesigned

    Did you know the design of the takeaway coffee cup that you sipped from this morning is a design that dates back to nearly 30 years ago! That is 3 decades and not a single thing has changed from the original design.

    The original coffee cup design is simple and utilitarian, but only to a point. Slight movements sends liquid bursting through the lid. The liquid then gets caught into a groove indented onto the cup. This essentially represents your last line of defence against wet hot liquid from spilling onto you. Not very comforting at all.

    Another design fault on the current coffee cup is that steam is trapped inside the cup. This means that premium coffee after a while will taste no different to cheap flavourless

  7. Logo Changes You May Not Have Noticed

    Brands change logos all the time. This year we have noticed some Iconic brand names which you and I know and possibly even regularly use, that have undergone changes. Some brands have gone through small changes whilst others are quite dramatic indeed. Changing a logo is no easy task, as the amount of marketing and merchandise that goes along with it means these are huge expensive exercises. The changes of course have everything to do with corporate image and how these brands think consumers will react with a bit of tinkering to obtain a favourable image.

    Take a tour with us and check out these brand names that have had changes. Did you see any of these changes?

  10. Drake Courtside Using A Unique Branded Product

    He is the current king of cool at the moment. The person I am talking about is none other than Drake! His signature style for those who are not fans of his are mellow R&B beats which are delivered with hip hop lyrics with rhymes and words that flow with ease. In other words he is genuinely a gentleman in the world of hip hop dominated by a lot of hip hop thugs.

    So what does Drake do when he is court side supporting his favourite basketball team the Toronto Raptors (he is Canadian). Well he whips out his fan merchandise, supplied courtesy of the sports team in question of course and he casually to show his support. What has set tongues wagging (as well as dozens of jokes and parodies on Youtube) is that instead of using things like a branded scarf, or perhaps an embroidered cap he whips
