We have an extensive portfolio of work showcasing our input and the results.

Tagmakers has assisted in the design - and the application of these designs - of numerous branded items across a wide range of industries. As can be seen, many of the products are tangible objects where a design has had to be incorporated into an object that has a functional purpose.

Here, we showcase a small handful of many hundreds of projects in which we have had involvement. In most cases, we have worked with the advertising/promotional agencies of the companies showcased, and/or a product manufacturer who has been contracted to produce a branded item.

Warner Music Grammy Awards 2018

For their 2018 Grammy Awards party in New York, Warner Music sent out a large Golden Key invitation to all the music celebrities.

Monster Energy Drinks

Monster Energy Drinks holds annual staff conventions which are attended by staff members from all their global divisions.

Several thousand people attend these events, and to enable people to get to know each other, each staff member is handed a branded ID tag on a steel ballchain. The front has the iconic Monster logo, and on the back is the person's name and date they joined the company.

Tagmakers assisted with the configuration of their corporate ID for application on these tags, as well as the configuration of the large data-file of names, from which each tag was personalised.

Formula 1 Racing

Formula 1 required several hundred durable identification discs to attach to the the numerous video cameras and microphones used during a Formula 1 event.

The discs had to be tough, and holes applied allowing the discs to be fixed to the cables attached to the equipment.

Tagmakers assisted with the design specifications of these discs, determining an appropriate typeface (for good visibility) as well as the precision-positioning of the mounting holes.

Gloucester Cathedral

Gloucester Cathedral underwent major refurbishment and re-design of their surrounding gardens earlier in the decade. This multi-million pound project required high-quality services and products from hundreds of specialists and professionals.

New paths and walkways in the cathedral gardens were to be inlaid with bronze discs as part of the new aesthetic. A special alloy of phosphor bronze was specified, to both complement the historical features of the cathedral, and to be hardwearing and durable in an exterior environment.

Tagmakers assisted with the design specifications of these discs, which had to be precision-engineered to within one-tenth of a millimetre.

Killhope Lead Mining Museum

Killhope Lead Mining Museum is a popular tourist attraction in the AONB Pennines.

Killhope's gift-shop asked us to design a keyring medallion, showcasing the iconic water-wheel that was used to power the mine's ore crusher in the 19th century - and which is a core element of the museum's corporate identity.

A visit to the mine resulted in scores of photographs being taken, which we then ran through Adobe software to remove the background, and accentuate the wheel's features. The design proofs were sent to a specialist medallion manufacturer in China, who converted the graphic into a 3D CAD vector for the mould. The result is this striking medallion which is selling well in the museum's gift shop.

Lanesborough Hotel Marble Arch London

The Lanesborough Hotel in London is another of the capital's most luxurious hotels.

Lanesborough required a large set of cloakroom tokens and tags, on a gold-coloured metal, that was functional, durable, easy to clean and completely inert and hygienic.

A special anodised aluminium substrate was chosen as this material met the design requirements. Tagmakers composed the layout and design of the template, from which several hundred cloakroom tokens were produced.

KLM's maintenance division at Norwich International Airport services the fleet's aircraft.

The company required several sets of tool ID tags that met exacting aerospace specifications. The tags form part of a safety audit process to account for all tooling used when servicing the jets. Tagmakers assisted with the design and format of the tags, to be used in conjunction with the system of tool-marking and stainless steel pegging boards.
