As part of the new retail shed’s official launch celebrations, we had been running a relatively low-key competition whereby we asked the general public to participate in our Sculpture and 3D signage competition “PROJECT PHOENIX”.
The interest from the public was n’t overwhelming, but those who took the time to enter the competition provided us with some inspiring designs to contemplate.
But there can be only one winner, and that award went to 16-year-old Indi Ward.
Indi, aided and abetted by his inspirational mother Kerry-Anne, built the masterpeice out of materials purchased from Salamander Bay Recycling.
He used an old ironing board, a couple of saw blades and various abstract bits and peices to create his 3D sign for our fishing section.
Indi (pictured below) was presented with the winning cheque of $200 for his contribution by the Chairman of Salamander Bay Recycling; Mr. Alan Cloke at the official launch event held on the 1st of February 2010.
Indi Ward’s 3D “Fishing” sign dominates the space above the Centre’s “Fishing” section. If you look closely enough, you can see the word “Fishing” crafted onto the side of the Sail fish.
Indi used cutlery, tools and various bits of wire to create the letters on the sign.
Well done Indi… but we have a couple of sections that still require signage (if you have the time)…
