Joe's 3 C's #63 'Intri-cuts, Paper Trophies and Masks'

Post by Joe Wigzell » Tue Jul 18, 2017 1:01 pm

Hi hey hello,

Welcome to another of 'Joe's 3 C's' :D

In these posts I will try to bring you something Creative, Something Cool and something Commercial.
The format for these 3 things will vary, from images, videos and websites to unique applications, tips tricks and tutorials. Mostly print or 3D related but some things may be thrown in just because they ought to be shared (probably in the Cool part)!
There will be some terrible jokes thrown in at the end too!

Being a bit of a geek for all things design related, hopefully I'll be able to find some interesting bits and bobs to share with you!

Welcome to number 63 of Joe's 3 C's!

Summer is happening and will no doubt be gone before we know hope you're enjoying yourselves and getting a well deserved break!?

Something Creative...

12-point Signworks, a graphics company over in the States put in the hours creating this intricate and detailed graphic for a Mini Cooper.
A full wrap might have been a bit easier(?), but it's a really nice end result and I quite like the thin cut lines and the simplicity of the black on white! They said this about the wrap/cut question:
One of the most challenging things about this job was that it was individually cut graphics and not digitally printed graphics. If we printed the black design on a background of white vinyl it would have been a snap to apply to the car, but each black line, dot, and swirl has been cut out of black vinyl. Our client really wanted it to be done with cut vinyl because she wanted it to look totally like her Mini Cooper could have come from the factory with that design on it and not like it was obviously a wrap.
Something Cool...

Polygonal images and 3D shapes have been pretty popular in the graphics industries of late, and these 'Paper trophies' are awesome!
They could be decorated or edited any way you want, I'm thinking of getting one and digitally printing a texture/image on to it :)
There are loads of them, and not too unreasonably priced.

Something Commercial...

These guys over at have come up with some 'freak masks' that I think are great!
A cheap and easy fancy dress option for a variety of events...birthdays, stag/hen parties, sports name it!

A simple dye-sublimation application, these are fun, Creative, Cool and Commercial!

That's all for this week's Joe's 3 C's!
