  1. Custom Wine Bottles for Gen Y

    Custom Wine Bottles for Gen Y

    Sometimes a great product isn't enough. You can know the market and know the product they'd like to buy, but if it doesn't look right it's going to miss the mark. For example, wine is experiencing somewhat of a renewed popularity amongst younger generations of drinkers, but the marketing and promotional wine bottles targeted at them is going to look completely different to the established wine purveyors of older age groups.


    • Custom printed wine bottles, such as the ones offered by Reborn in partnership with Australian Vintage Limited.
    • Personalised wine bottles cater to the preferences of the digital generation, incorporating digital campaigns, social media engagement, etc. 
    • The effectiveness of custom labeled wine bottles extends beyond wine, associating brands with enjoyable experiences and good times.

  3. Nameless Paints = Amazing Merchandising

    Unique Promotional Packaging

    So much of the time, packaging design and branding is an intense saturation of words and labels with the express purpose of driving the brand recognition into consumers brains. But sometimes, immense impact can be made with what is not said...

    Customised Paint Tubes

    Japanese design duo Ima Moteki has sought to revolutionise the way children learn about colours with some ingenious packaging design. Their 'Nameless Paints' range is comprised of minimalistic white tubes of paint labelled with an "equation" of primary colours, so the colour is not identified by a word, but what it is: a colour.

  4. Crazy Selfie Stick Promo Item

    There are some promotional items that are very normal, whilst there are other products that are absolutely CRAZY! This particular selfie stick is definitely the type of product that I would call crazy. What is it? It is a Selfie Stick that is attached to the back of a spoon.

  5. Amazing Custom Printed Umbrellas

    The weather in Sydney has been rather dismal lately. Dark, dreary rainclouds looming overhead, a dash of rain in some areas and rough storms in others, and a chilling wind that cuts right through you. It’s almost like winter is staging a comeback, and just when we were packing away the umbrellas and raincoats. Rain doesn’t necessarily have to be miserable though, and umbrellas don’t need to be boring and utilitarian, as you might have seen previously on our blog. Still, these novelty umbrellas from Japan bring a whole new meaning to branded umbrellas.

    With a clever application of water absorbent and water repellent coatings, these umbrellas appear plain and unassuming when dry, but unveil all kinds of interesting

    Tokyo 2020 Abandoned Logo Alternatives

    Earlier this month, the organisers of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics ran into some trouble when designer of the official logo Kenjiro Sano was accused of plagiarism against the design of the logo for the theater of Liège in Belgium.

    Classic Branding Mistake

    This is a classic lesson in doing your research when it comes to your branding. The organisers had to make the decision to scrap the logo amid the controversy and start over again.

    The only positive to the embarrassingly widespread publicity of the disgrace, designers from all over

  9. Whoops! Branding Errors at Barangaroo

    We here at Cubic Promote are no strangers to branding problems. We’re in the business of promotional products, and sometimes, our customers can’t quite decide how they want to promote their brand. From having wildly varying designs they can’t quite pick from, to minor changes at the final stages, to approval issues from their head honchos. We’ve seen a number of ways people trying to promote their brand can go wrong. Totally understandable of course, if you’re going to put your name out there, you’re going to want it done right. The last thing you want to do is jump the gun, and end up with a result that not everyone will agree with. It’s quite funny then, that our own NSW State Government has done something similar.

  10. Mini Paintings = Logo Inspiration

    Artist Karen Libecap's paintings and sketches are remarkable enough in their rendering and detail. But once you realise that they are in-fact just about the right size to fit on your thumbnail, they become pretty amazing.
