Truck Trailer Graphics – GAIN Feeds

Our graphic design services include vehicle graphic design.

One of the best places to get yourself noticed is on the road. GAIN Feeds asked us here at AKGraphics to design custom trailer graphics for their trucks. These custom livery graphics had to be big enough to catch a persons attention and had to get the message across instantly.

The artwork had to be designed to the critical dimensions of the custom trailer built by Muldoon Transport Systems. This meant that our trailer design had to allow for port holes, cover and strap positions. Our trailer graphics were adapted to suit these restrictions.

The overall design uses a combination of photography, illustration and typography. Using icons to inform your customers of your product range can have a better impact than text. This is why we decided to use illustrations of animals.

Table Talker with Medical Infographic Design

Infographic design for a Table Talker for Aut Even Hospital

Table talkers are a very popular promotional Point of Sale (POS) advertising device in restaurants. Table talkers have the advantage of close proximity to customers when they take a seat and consider what to eat.

Although most commonly found in cafes and bars these promotional items are not limited to the food industry. They can be used to great advantage in the hospitality industry, travel agencies, pharmaceutical, financial services and even medical industries as seen in this design project for Aut Even Hospital, Kilkenny.

Sometimes an informational flyer will not have the impact required, in these cases a table talker is a great alternative promotional tool. This is also evident at large conferences, trade shows and events.

Aut Even Hospital required a printed item that would explain to patients why they are repeatedly asked to confirm their identity in the hospital. The process of confirming a patient’s details is necessary in the hospital and the design for the table talker had to convey this in a clear way.

By designing custom infographics the finished design for the table talker was clear and engaging. The use of bold colours also helped to ensure the design was eye-catching and appealing.

More common uses for table talkers are for special offers, events, food and drink menus in bars, restaurants and cafes. Due to the ability for table talkers to instantly deliver your promotional message, they are very effective at instant communication for any target market.

Multifunctional Podium for Tradeshows

Using a cleverly designed podium to hold and display your tablet at tradeshows creates an easy, clean and professional way to present your specific products or services. By changing the top the same podium can also be used as a competition box or simply used as a meeting point or display table. The podium itself is lightweight, easy to assemble and gives a huge opportunity and space to apply your company or business branding. All artwork is easy and quick to change meaning you can keep the one podium and change the design as often as you like. Call us if you require more information!

What’s the Difference Between a Logo and a Symbol?

Logo or symbol?

Apple, IBM and FedEx, logos or symbols?

We stumbled across an interesting article on Fast Company that really jumped out at us!

What’s the difference between a logo and a symbol? is a question we come across ourselves more than you’d think and we’re glad to see we’re not the only ones!

Here at AKGraphics we’d more than likely refer to them all as ‘Identities’ from Coporate, Visual or Personal but interestingly enough the article breaks it down further to Logo, Symbol and Combination marks.

If you’re interested in knowing what the difference really is it’s worth a read!
