Super Chevy Show booth!

Last week, Firebird Raceway hosted the Super Chevy Show, and we were thrilled to be involved. We did both graphics and printing for Loud Pedal Motorsports, and it all made up their booth! The event had a great turnout, and, if we do say so ourselves, the Loud Pedal booth looked great! Check out the pictures below: we even included one of the "during" process - instead of just the finished product. This was a big project, and we were thrilled to help Loud Petal attract some attention!

Holidays Are A'coming...

Well, like it or not, Halloween is this weekend... and what that means for you, as consumers, is that it is almost time to go spend exorbitant amounts of money on friends, family, and ... other people you feel obligated to buy gifts for. What that means for us, as producers, is that it is time to buckle down and start preparing for the festivities! We must say, being on this end of it is a lot of fun. We've already started building new 25' inflatable Santas, seen below, and cleaning the rental fleet we've already made. We're heading towards a very exciting season, and we can't wait to share it with you. So hey, keep us filled in - need an inflatable Santa? How 'bout a large banner announcing your holiday sale? Perhaps what you really need is a vehicle wrapped to help drive traffic (no pun intended) to your business. Either way, let us know! We're confident that we've got the tools you need. Just look at the Santa below, if you need some inspiration!

Special Graphics Image Association Tradeshow

The Special Graphics Image Association Expo was last week, October 13-15, in Las Vegas, Nevada. One of our clients, Mutoh America Inc., was an exhibitor at the event. Mutoh is a leading manufacturer of large-format printers, and had five products to show at the event! To help them prepare, we printed some banners for them - on a Mutoh, of course. Check out the photos below!

Ignite Phoenix - It's Not Too Late!

Oftentimes, the authors social media outlets like blogs and microblogs post where they get their inspiration from. Sometimes it is family, another industry, or perhaps a website. One website that is cited quite often as a place to go when you're out of ideas is Similar to TED Talks, the point of this organization is to, as they say, "light a spark" under the Phoenix community. They provide a forum for people with great ideas to share those ideas across the community. This year's forum of ideas is taking place this Friday, October 15 at Scottsdale Center for the Arts. Not surprisingly, the tickets are already sold out. However, in amazing generosity, Ignite Phoenix encourages its ticket holders who are unable to attend the event to return the gifts to the event. Then, instead of resale, Ignite Phoenix will give out tickets on a first come, first serve basis to those who show up at 5pm with high hopes. Can we say that again - they give away these tickets! So, if you're running a little low on inspiration and want to hear some great ideas, show up at Scottsdale Center for the Arts tomorrow! You never know, you might hit a stroke of luck and catch some free tickets to Ignite Phoenix #8.

Just Installed...

V&P Nurseries has been a great client for us for awhile, and we have been lucky to wrap several dozen trucks for them. They know that by consistently coming back to us, they're guaranteed a reliable and consistent product. And we know that if we keep getting them the attention they deserve, the relationship will last forever!

This time, though, when installing their project, we took pictures throughout the entire process. These photos will allow you, our loyal followers, to understand the complete process, and to actually see the labor that goes into a wrap.

And that's how it goes! Of course, there were a few photos left out from the process, but this should give you a pretty concrete idea. Hope you enjoyed!

Minimalist Design Strategy

If you're ever looking for a good read, be sure to check out A well organized blog, the authors have a wide array of graphic design-oriented topics to keep your creative brain yearning for more. One that we found particularly useful was "30 Creative Minimalist Print Ads - Saying more with less!" Minimalism is a great way to attract attention without distracting focus. These clever graphic designers made their points without any extra "stuff" - and they deserve extra recognition for that! While we won't spoil you with all thirty ads here, we will share a few - and it is definitely worth it to go check out the rest!

Straight out of Milan, Italy, a great advertisement for their public transportation system:

It's the hat - a clever (though rather controversial!) idea from a hat company, portraying that a hat can take you from Hitler to Chaplin...

And to wrap it all up, this one not only portrays minimalism, but also gives a lovely definition of the idea:

We don't want to ruin the whole blog for you, so go explore the remaining 27 ads as you wish! Each is at least as clever and innovative as the ones we've shown here, and anyone with an appreciation of design is sure to enjoy each one.

Trillium Project

We are lucky to have an awesome relationship with Trillium Residential, and we decided to take a quick picture of our progress! Here you can see an example of a large banner we recently created to help them attract attention from prospective residents. As you can see, the design is simple, factual, and large! In fact, studies show that the human eye is naturally attracted to dollar signs and percentage signs. It is little factoids like this that ensure our ability to attract attention for all of our clients! Trillium is doing something right, and we are proud to help.
