Working with Elastic, the PR agency for Haig Club, we came up with a number of different design options for the client to pick from. This began with a 3D CAD design in our studio and then went through concept alignment with the workshop and build teams to ensure that the concepts were fit to be built within the extremely tight timeframe of 2 weeks. Upon agreeing on a chosen way forward, we put everything into production.
Using a 25mm aluminium box section product, we were able to built a unit that was easily put together and de-rigged by brand managers, without the need for any specific tools. Applying a Perspex frontage onto these allowed us a few sections that could be placed into a fabric case for easy transportation and usage.
For the second unit design, we built this around a circuit board which housed the lighting source inside. The design was similar with a Perspex material with applied vinyl wrap to allow the light source to shine through.
We built a total of 10x and 6x units respectively for on-trade marketing teams around the country to use.
Outstanding feedback from our client, especially given that we went from first email to delivered product within 2 weeks. For any last minute projects, feel free to get in touch. But if we’re honest, more than 2 weeks would be great if it’s possible!
