Street Network and JCPZ Combine Efforts For OOH Communication

Street Network and JCPZ Combine Efforts For OOH Communication

Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo (JCPZ) recently collaborated with Street Network to get its recent campaign’s messaging out to the public.

JCPZ is mandated by the City of Johannesburg to manage the City’s cemeteries, parks and designated public open spaces as well as to ensure that its environmental conservation function is carried out. This includes the maintenance of all street and park trees within the City’s borders and the Joburg Zoo. JCPZ is entrusted with the preservation and management of biodiversity through direct conservation action, education, research and recreation.

As the custodian of Joburg’s green heritage, the JCPZ is currently running a campaign which highlights the valuable work it does in terms of Capital Infrastructure Development; Open Space Management; Zoological, Horticultural and Ecological Services and Urban Forestry. Its portfolio consists of 20,000ha of green open spaces and 3.2 million trees, while the Zoo has 326 species consisting of 2096 specimens, all housed within a 54ha area.

‘Key to the #WelcomeOutside campaign was ensuring that multiple messages related to the range of services offered were delivered effectively. By selecting Bus Shelters, the JCPZ was able to not only get the messaging out to the general public, but the flexibility of out-of-home and bus shelters in particular allowed for each service offering to be unpacked further,’ commented Jonathan Everest, head of sales at Street Network.

Bus Shelters can be used in a targeted and contextually relevant manner, with the JCPZ campaign taking full advantage of this. Visible in the vicinity of a number of key locations such as the Joburg Zoo and to targeted audiences along major routes, the campaign successfully delivered multiple contextually relevant messages.

‘The JCPZ’s vision is to develop, maintain and conserve public open spaces, cemeteries and animal life for present and future generations. Street Network delivered a solution that amplified and extended the reach of the current campaign in a bold and creatively engaging manner,’ concluded Everest.

3M Graphics South Africa Hosts Vehicle Wrapping Workshop With Industry Experts

Vaughn Repsold demonstrates on a vehicle at an advanced vehicle wrapping workshop brought together by 3M Graphics South Africa.

International wrap installer Ivan Tenchev from Bulgaria and local 3M endorsed vehicle graphics installer Vaughn Repsold hosted an advanced training workshop at the 3M Graphics South Africa Woodmead Head Office.

The workshop brought together various business owners from the wrapping industry to discuss ideas and understand the much finer and advanced factors involved in wrapping a vehicle.

The event created a platform for different nationalities to compare a number of different factors to consider when wrapping a vehicle – namely climate, choice of detergents, wiping materials and overall surface preparation.

Tenchev and Repsold spent the day demonstrating on a vehicle and imparting their application knowledge, which has contributed to them winning or entering the next phases of various wrap competitions around the world, such as FESPA World Wrap Masters.

Repsold made it to the quarter finals in the Battle World Tour Hamburg Messe, 2016-2017. Tenchev won last year’s FESPA Wrap Masters Eurasia in Istanbul, Turkey.

Tenchev, who runs his own vehicle application business Astra Folio with his wife and has travelled the world to learn as much as he can about the vehicle graphics installation business, said that he would like to establish an online training centre, as he is passionate about helping new installers and using quality materials. He emphasised that vehicle cleanliness and surface preparation is the most important thing when wrapping a vehicle.

Sign-Tronic Showcasing 3D XPS Illuminated Signage Solutions At Sign Africa Expo

Sign-Tronic Showcasing 3D XPS Illuminated Signage Solutions At Sign Africa Expo

Sign-Tronic will exhibit how to make amazing 3D Styrofoam illuminated letters, signage and decorative elements with the Obelisk plotter at the Sign Africa Durban Expo, taking place 7-8 February at the Durban International Convention Centre (Hall 3).

Obelisk allows sign-makers to produce not just plain signage, but complete illuminated 3D XPS foam signage or letters with a brilliant finish. Users can simply print, cut and dip coat the 3D letters in a unique, liquid coating for a high gloss, protective finish (there is a five year warranty on signage with the coating.) The 3D sign is ready for mounting after a simple three component assembly with quick-set adhesives.

A professional, easy to operate machine with a footprint of less than a square metre when in operation, the Obelisk is capable of a maximum foam sheet size of 1250 x 600mm and thicknesses up to 100mm. Because cutting with the Obelisk is so effective, the cutting surfaces are smooth and free of any jagged edges. Ultra-light and cost effective, XPS or EPS Polystyrene foam does not absorb water and is easy to finish using print, water-based or acrylic paint.

The Obelisk Foam Plotter is supplied with intuitive Stella Obelisk software that allows importing of objects from Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW. Alternatively, users can create cut files directly in Stella-Obelisk and then combine objects in a single-lined project that is then ready to be cut on the plotter. By using the ‘Auto’ button, the software generates all the necessary lines and paths, making foam plotting as easy as printing.

Applications include: signage, illuminated letters, logos, architectural shapes, hobby, craft and toys, retail, decor, packaging and more.

Sign-Tronic will run live demonstrations of the Obelisk on their stand.

Upcoming Sign Africa expo’s include:

Cape Town: 14-15 March, Cape Town International Convention Centre.
Bloemfontein: 10 May, Ilanga Estate.
Zambia: 6-7 June, Mulungushi International Conference Centre.
Johannesburg: 12-14 September, Gallagher Convention Centre.

Moving Tactics Introduces Digital Content Division

Ryno Colyn, Moving Tactics.

Moving Tactics has launched a Digital Content division to provide a specialised content service that will maximise the value their clients achieve from their digital signage investments.

Chris Day, Managing Director of Moving Tactics, said, ‘It’s very important for us to offer a comprehensive digital signage service from hardware, software and content. At the end of the day, the network is only as good as its content. For this reason we see the value in offering a content service to our clients to ensure maximum return. The industry growth has helped us gain experience in more than just content animation and with this growth, Moving Tactics has established a specialised service in content strategy, content development and content analytics.’

Moving Tactics’ Digital Content will be headed by Ryno Colyn, who has 14 years’ experience in the digital signage industry in content strategy and development, play listing, scheduling, networks and installations. In the retail space, he has worked within Woolworths to develop and grow their in-store digital offering and has also established the content strategy for the Clicks and Clicks Pharmacy’s digital signage networks. Most recently, he has developed the content strategy for the MTN digital in-store network as well as for their Brand and Touch channels.

‘Digital Content will provide an in-house digital content development team to produce bespoke content for all the departments within Moving Tactics. For our clients, we will specifically assist with the transition from traditional media to in-store digital. In-store digital signage content must be treated differently than traditional media content such as TV, print or radio. This can be a big challenge for a brand or it’s agency that is only used to producing content for traditional channels,’ explained Colyn.

And what is the secret to creating great content? According to Colyn, ‘It must be great visual effects and hours of animation, right? Although effects and animation has its place, it doesn’t necessarily make content great or engaging. Visual appeal will make you look but will it influence your buying decision? A relevant and measurable content strategy paired with well-produced content will allow for a solid foundation. The science behind content development is the ability to skilfully manage your content sources and marketing strategy in order to deliver on engaging, relevant and measurable content.’

Red Hand Sign Supplies Collaborates With Branding Design Swaziland

Red Hand Sign Supplies Collaborates With Branding Design Swaziland

Branding Design Swaziland approached Red Hand Sign Supplies to come up with a solution for their client’s main feature sign at a brand new building.

The sign had to accommodate certain design features to match the client’s needs. Among other requirements the sign had to indicate the name of the building clearly while being floor mounted and independent from other walls or balustrades.

The client needed the double sided sign to accommodate the official opening plaque and give this prominence in the design. The opening plaque was mounted in a specially designed cavity in the top centre of the Vista Light sign to give it a floating effect while making it the centre of attention for visitors.

As the building was officially opened by the King of Swaziland, the project had to be completed on time.

The design and production teams at Red Hand Sign Supplies worked in partnership with the Branding Design team to meet the above mentioned needs and deadline.

Primedia Outdoor Food Gardens Bear Fruit

Primedia Outdoor Food Gardens Bear Fruit

Primedia Outdoor, in collaboration with NGO Food and Trees for Africa, is pleased to report the fruition of two food gardens that were established last year, as part of its ongoing drive to promote food security and skills transfer.

The food gardens were implemented in Siyamnaka Youth Centre in Pinetown and Balebogeng Higher Primary School in Mamelodi in March and June 2017 respectively.

Primedia Outdoor has partnered with Food and Trees for Africa since 2011 and has actively been involved in establishing six other vegetable gardens at schools and youth centres in various parts of South Africa.

Siyamnaka Youth Centre’s garden is flourishing under the committed care of 16 community members, who in November 2017 harvested their summer crop, which will feed their families as well as support the centre’s crèche.

Meanwhile, Balebogeng Higher Primary School also celebrated their yearend harvest in November 2017. The MMC for Community and Social services, Ntsiki Mokhoto, was a special guest at the event and helped the garden’s guardians grade 7 learners, educators and groundsman to harvest their crop. The vegetables supplement the school’s feeding scheme and also provide much needed meals for some of the learners at home.

MMC Mokhoto, a former teacher, expressed pride at the learners’ and staffs’ hard work and dedication in the garden and in the classroom.

‘Education is important and it is everyone’s responsibility to make sure our children are given all they need to make learning conducive,’ she said. ‘Partnerships with companies such as Primedia Outdoor and Food and Trees for Africa are crucial. We want more learners and teachers to join such gardening initiatives as they are empowering. The garden also keeps kids busy after school; consequently they won’t have time to get into dangerous activities like drug and alcohol abuse.’

Balebogeng’s headmistress Grace Mkhize and Siyamnaka Youth Centre Project Leader Thabisile Dube were both delighted and grateful for the support they are receiving from Primedia Outdoor. They echoed similar sentiments about the importance of good nutrition provided by the gardens as well as gratitude for the training from Food and Trees for Africa, which is equipping them with skills to alleviate hunger in their communities.

Balebogeng Higher Primary and Siyamnaka Youth Centre receive biweekly training on permaculture and support from Food and Trees for Africa to maintain the gardens as long-term sources of nutrition. Primedia Outdoor staff visit regularly to make sure that everything is in order and to lend a hand.

Speaking at Balebogeng’s harvest, Kennedy Tshabalala, executive: rights and development at Primedia Outdoor said, ‘Education is key. We previously donated school uniforms, stationery and computers to schools, but realised that for the children to excel, they have to be fed. No one can learn effectively on an empty stomach. We are happy that both Balebogeng and Siyamnaka continue to dedicate their time and energy to keep the gardens flourishing. This success proves that we are all working together effectively for the benefit of the children and the community.’
