GMCC Citizen of the Year Concept and Custom Design Services
Shattering Expectations with Custom-designed Event Materials
We were excited to be asked to design and build the centerpieces for the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce’s Citizen of the Year event for 2018. Our custom design services can be leveraged by any company for amazing results and the GMCC event is no different. This year we wanted to focus on clearing the clutter from the table so that the whole table had a more cohesive design. We incorporated the table number into the centerpiece and made a complimentary piece for the Main Course sponsor.
Design Concepts and Prototypes
We wanted to do something that incorporated wood and acrylic, curves and angles, light and dark, so after we designed the initial invitation and had it approved with the fractured background and the graphic mountain range, we used that as a jumping off point.
After having settled on the main design we quickly got to work on building the centerpieces out of wood and acrylic using our laser machine to cut the pieces. One of the newest pieces of equipment in the shop is our Epilog Fusion M2 40 120 watt laser. Early on in this project, we decided to produce everything using just this one machine. The Epilog certainly got a workout in the weeks leading up to the Chamber event – this whole project took over 80 hours of machine time to etch and cut!
