Roger Tait / Workroom Group

Roger Tait private environmental
Trigger was engaged by Roger Tait to collaborate on the environmental design for his adjoining fashion retail premises and studio space, 'The Workroom Group, at Sydney's Central Park, as part of the Brand X creative spaces project. We worked with Roger and Loop Creative to develop a facade concept using a unique and cost effective system of specially died woven seat belts. We conceptualised a large scale projection screen and its content to anchor the retail space, allowing the flexibility to continually change projection content and easily refresh the look and feel of the space. We designed the neon signage for 'Roger Tait Man' and the screen printed signage for 'The Workroom Group', ensuring both identities coexisted harmoniously on the facade. Tait outdoor designed all retail furniture. Trigger consulted on lighting and and other integral aspects of the project. We also designed the brand identities for Roger Tait Man and The Workroom Group and applications to video, web, fashion and promotional campaigns and stationery.

Darling River Drive

National Parks and Wildlife Service government exhibition / interpretive
Toorale National Park comprises of 91,000 hectares of land with frontages to the Darling and Warrego Rivers. The park is located southwest of the township of Bourke in northwestern NSW.
Trigger, in collaboration with GML Heritage engaged with stakeholders, such as the Aboriginal Joint Management Committee, to conceive an Interpretation Plan and provide a range of innovative interpretative design concepts to create an experience that inspires and engages visitors.
Our multi-disciplinary team employed an interconnected approach to this project, comprising physical, digital and program layers. The layers form complementary and unique experiences for visitors before, during and after the visit. Communicating the heritage values of the park through the interpretive design and content, as well as via marketing initiatives, was integral to the strategy.
Trigger is implementing interpretive concepts over a 3 year period. Stage 1 physical interpretives installed in the park include are located at Mt Talowla and beside the Darling River.
Interpretives on the Darling River focus on the river and its central importance for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people historically and today, offering different perspectives and uses of the river. The days of the paddlesteamers is evoked by an interpretive which features a laser cut corten steel paddlesteamer that appears to float on the rippling water of the Darling. This is a playful visual way to communicate what it must have been like to experience a busy transport corridor of puffing paddle steamers. The 4 Darling River interpretives sit comfortably in the landscape, seeking not to contrast with it but to compliment it and communicate deeper meanings and history.

A series of 11 bespoke cast bronze plaques at Mt Talowla interprets the site’s history as a vantage point for looking out across the landscape for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people. The 270º views allow a visual connection between Toorale National Park and adjoining Gundabooka National Park. Installing interpretation at ground level evokes the importance of the shared earth and the landscape – we must bend to it, not it to us.

A Capital Collection

National Capital Authority government exhibition / interpretive
'A Capital Collection – Our History in Fashion' examines the story of Canberra through fashion. Four key moments in Canberra's history are interpreted in this travelling exhibition. The exhibition design creates a ‘landscape’, both physically and contexturally, a mix of elegantly curved sculptural forms, key images and messages. The aim is to communicate historical stories within a contemporary framework.
Open display was an important design component, allowing greater engagement between visitors and objects. The floor carries graphic arcs that visually represent 'story arcs' and set the position of the illuminated curved screens. This visual language subtley echoes the distinctive town planning of Canberra. Although more correctly the shape Canberra’s town plan is based on is the ‘triangle’, many would relate and identify with the circular motif of the city. The exhibition contains a number of innovative design ideas. Most striking are the slender illuminated screens. Their creation involved a very complex set of design and construction issues, belying their visual simplicity. The screens are a design, lighting and engineering achievement not seen before in exhibition design.
The exhibition architecture also functions as its crating system. Therefore the exhibition requires no storage - an important innovation that allows the exhibition to travel to more destinations. The exhibition can be reconfigured to fit in a variety of different sized spaces. For one location it splits into two sections. A bespoke table design for a series of iPads, showing audio visual content, is also part of the exhibition.

Amicus Sydney

Amicus private branding / identity
Each year an event for top financial planners - a group know as 'Amicus' - is held. Trigger's "Paper Scissors Rock' concept communicated dual business and social messages and involved the creation of bespoke paper sculptures. For business a clean sheet of 'paper' is the starting point for a visionary, 'scissors' symbolise 'making the cut' and 'rock' symbolises strength and security. For the social events each of the three themes was given a fun twist. Photographs used for each invitation were 'teasers' for each event. An image of diamond constructed from paper gave delegates and their partners clues for the final secret event where they were invited to try on precious stones and pose for a fashion photographer at Cerrone Fine Jewels. Trigger strategised, conceptualised, designed and produced all printed items including programs and invitations, and wrote all copy connected with the theme. The event was a major success, the concept capturing the imagination of all involved.

Botanica

Australand private environmental
Australand commissioned Trigger to provide interpretive signage in the landscape to interpret the former site of Lidcombe Hospital, which is now a brand new suburb of Sydney - Botanica. Part of the site is a heritage precinct of architecturally significant buildings, while the vast majority is contemporary housing. The challenge of the interpretation was to convey the themes and messages of the sites’ heritage in a physical form that would relate to the new development and its future as a new residential area. A contemporary design language achieves this. The large sculptural signs clearly pinpoint sites of interest in the vast development and brass markers embedded in roads and footpaths direct visitors and residents along a heritage trail that takes in all the heritage sites and information.
The signs are constructed from steel, 3m laser cut galvanised pylons and vitreous enamel interpretation panels, to ensure long term survival in the elements.
