Laser Cutting Studio

If you've been following my blog, you will be aware that Thea & Sami have been extremely busy preparing for our first Life InStyle trade show. There is SO much to do. We are freighting furniture and wares to Melbourne for our stand so are working like crazy to get all our props ready by the weekend. Luckily, I have a new studio assistant who is doing a lot of painting. I will be introducing her to you on Friday.

Continuing on from last week's post, I wanted to share with you the laser-cutting work Emma Gascoyne did for me.

Be prepared to be very jealous as this is Emma's studio located in her backyard. It's a child/husband/pet-free zone. Yes, that is an TV antenna on the roof. It's the ultimate cubby house for mums.

I wanted to have a Thea & Sami sign made for my stand that I would be able to use over again. That is our logo with our new colours on Emma's laptop. The design was then scaled to the size we wanted it cut and sent to the laser cutter.

This is the laser cutter that is doing a test trace of the design over the MDF to check that it all fits.

Watching this next step was quite exciting: the actual laser cutting of our logo.

Here are all the pieces laid out ready to be painted and mounted. I will keep you posted and show you the finished results.

Is it narcissitic to want to make this a sign for my office? I think it stems back to my school days when I was obsessed with labelling all my posessions.

Working with Emma was so great that we will be collaborating on a future design project. So many ideas but all be revealed in good time!

Great idea with the sign and I don't think it's narcissistic at all. I think branding is a very important part of any business, well done all involved, what a fab result :)
