It’s been a jam-packed year for the Q2D team, with approximately 630 shows! As we say a fond farewell to 2018 and an anticipating aloha to 2019, we’ve taken a little time to reflect on some of our favourite stands from what has been a truly stand-out 12 months.
Animal Friends at Dog Fest 2018
Perhaps the happiest show on earth – unless, of course, you’re a cat person – Dog Fest was sponsored by Prestige clients Animal Friends Pet Insurance this year, and brought together pooches from all over the country. Account Manager Amelia has a soft spot for this pretty in pink masterpiece, and really enjoyed helping Animal Friends overcome a few obstacles en route to the show.
“It’s just one I feel really proud of and the client was SO happy with it!” Amelia said looking back over the trials she faced with the stand. The show was touring in three locations and was held outside at each of them. Typically, we advise our clients against using our system outdoors, but as the stand was to be contained in a marquee, we got right to work designing something that really was the dog’s unmentionables.
The result were these vibrant hot pink panels, designed and produced in-house at our HQ in Poole, which were a hit with hounds and humans alike. Amelia even got to attend the Bristol instalment of Dog Fest – many a pup did she pet.
Gridserve at TowerXchange Meetup Africa 2019
Head of Design Ross nominated this logistical triumph as his favourite stand of 2018. Not only did the stand tower over most others in our pre-build zone at 5 quads high, but we were given a tight timeframe in which to get it designed, signed-off, and shipped. Gridserve, based in Bali, were attending an exhibition in South Africa, and needed their stand sorted pronto. Our team managed to design their stylish graphic panels in only two days, and the stand was pre-built and quality-checked within a week before heading off to Johannesburg.
Gridserve purchased their stand from us, but with the shipping date only a week away they weren’t able to pop half way around the globe to attend build training. They constructed the stand using only a video of our pre-build – hats off to the team!
Zhuhai Kali at Luxury Packaging 2018
Both Project Manager Lucy and Graphic Designer James are besotted with Zhuhai Kali’s stand from Luxury Packaging 2018 – and it’s a favourite amongst the entire team. James got to design the stand himself after receiving a lovely brief which gave him a lot of creative freedom, and he really had a lot of fun with it! “James made it look so beautiful and elegant” said Lucy, and the photo-graphic floor brought in attention from all over the exhibition hall.
