Colours in Print – How to Get it Right

Well, you know some businesses are very sensitive to colours. The one I work in – decorative surfaces – is ALL ABOUT COLOURS. In this industry it is critical to get a brochure printed with colours that are as close to the original as possible, so getting the colour swatches right is just one big task 🙂

While some changes can be obtained via the printing process and printer settings, some colours you won’t get until you correct them in graphic design software.

It’s all about patience and good relationships with your printer 🙂


Team Power: The Insert Card for a Binder

I’ve always known that the team is the biggest asset of a company. One of our team came up with an idea of hand-made laminated card for our SmartPanel binder, and we made a decision to roll it out in all states. Very practical and quite low-cost: I did graphic design, and the printers did 2000 copies for around 400 dollars in Melbourne, free delivery to Sydney. Easy!

Lightboxes: The Slowest Project in My Career

The slowest project in my life is the creation and installation of lightboxes in our new meeting room. We could not find and choose photos, we could not approve the designs, the resolution of the photos was questioned, etc., etc., etc..

This project started just before Christmas and has been going on and on and on. And finally today (after almost half a year in the making) we installed the lightboxes on the walls and can finally tick the project as *completed*!
