The idea for this project was first presented at the Euroshop Exhibition in Düsseldorf for the
European market at the start of March 2017 and then at the GlobalShop exhibition in Las Vegas for the American market at the end of March the
same year. Our clients were very pleased with the idea, and it has inspired test projects for clients such as Braun (the German brand for small highend electrical appliances) and Kaercher (a market leader in cleaning systems for the home and business). We are continuing to work with other
brands in order to produce an in-store installation in the near future. Currently, we have the project installed in our showroom in San Sebastián, Spain.
 

gold winner - LA BELLEZA ESTÁ EN EL INTERIOR

KENDU IN-STORE VISUAL SOLUTIONS

Flowbox is a state-of-the-art dynamic display which allows you to combine textile images with videos and background animations, in order to give printed images movement. However, in our company, we wanted to go beyond this product, so we combined it with double-sided printing; the exterior of the printed object on the visible side (in this case the chassis of a car) and the interior of the object which was previously invisible (in this case the “inside” of the car). By playing with dynamic backlighting, we can use this printing technique to do “magic” for our clients, as the interior of the car suddenly appears, which created a lot of excitement at the Euroshop 2017 Exhibition (Düsseldorf, Germany) where we presented it.

EQUIPMENT:
Flowbox (FB1) with double-sided printing of a “beauty is on the inside” image onto Elurra textile, which we presented this year at the Euroshop 2017 Exhibition (Düsseldorf, Germany).

TIME FRAME:
In order to complete the project, Kendu spent one month in total carrying out the work. This month included testing time for both the digital department and the printing team.

bronze winner - The Age of Empires - Calendar 2017

Print Vision Pvt Ltd-SaiNath Polylam

Age of Empires - Is a calendar
designed, printed and produced by Print Vision. Since, last 7 years we have been doing theme based wall calendars, which expands our understanding of different techniques and incorporates different materials in a single calendar. This year we have used several different types of UV effects using screen printing over offset printed sheets, and also a Wet & revel ink on the “Mughal Empire - January”, page. “Age of Empires” is not just a calendar but a canvas, which we used to show the latest trends in the printing industry. Printing today is far more advanced then what most traditional print buyers think of it. Thus we believe, its our responsibility to showcase what the industry can do, so that the customers can understand our
capabilities.
