Bonsaï awards

Your custom designed trophy

Getting a trophy or an award is always a special occasion. So we believe every trophy should be a special one. That’s why designing a trophy is not about the amazing 3D technology we created. It’s not about the state-of-the-art 3D printing machines we use. Nor is it about our apps or tools. Building a trophy, is about asking yourself which trophy would make your winner truly happy. What would make them proud. That’s why we never limit our creativity. It’s why we think out of the box and dream big. So let’s start dreaming, shall we ...

Who do we work for?

Ok, not all our awards end up in the hands of Stromae. So you don’t have to be a major music award show to get in touch with us. We’ve built awards for kids who succesfully took a test too. Or for corporates that wanted to thank branch managers for their enthusiasm with a tombstone plaque or a deal gift. That’s another great thing about 3D printing: you can create a design for every occasion.

Why pick us?

Plenty of 3D-printer-companies around these days. So why team up with us? Simple: we’re 3D-printing and design natives. That means we don’t just understand the tools and software used to do this 3D-magic – we’ve built them ourselves. Our own 3D-engine, paired with a few smart apps, allows our creatives and engineers to do amazing things with lasers, metal and plastic.

How we work

Briefing Sketch Design Production Result
 

Briefing

Creativity starts with constraints. We need to know precisely what you are looking for. What materials you’re eyeballing, which elements you want to feature, in which context the trophy will be given, ... Expect us to listen, ask and show plenty of examples in this stage.

 

Sketch

You’ll probably already see our designers doodle and sketch during the first meeting. You wouldn’t believe the amount of pencils and notebooks we go through in a month. But it’s crucial to have plenty of drafts and ideas to cover different takes and angles on the subject, and spark the creativity. It’s just as fun as it sounds. (And, yes, we take budget constraints into account as well).

 

Design

Off to the machines. From pencil sketches we go to 3D models and rendered images on our computer screen. They almost look real (even though they are in fact 2D-illusions). Here, we craft and shape and rethink every detail of the design to ultimately end up with precisely the trophy you wanted.

 

Production

Happy with the design? Then let’s do some printing! Actually, it’s a bit more technical than that, with preparing production files and choosing printing and finishing techniques. But those skills are embedded in our dna (and they’ve actually already played their part in the design stage too).

 

Result

When we offer you the end product, we know you’re not the actual recipient of the trophy. You’re going to give it away to someone else. And that’s probably the real beauty of designing a trophy: there’s always a winner at the end of it.
