The 2016 Redcliffe KiteFest promises to be the biggest event yet, where Australian and international kite artists will combine to set Moreton Bay Region(QLD) alive with colour, excitement and family fun.
For the ultimate weekend to please young and old, keep your eyes on the Redcliffe sky as you come closer, looking out for kites of all shapes and sizes.
Ground colour in fabric leadlight art banners will be on show as designed by Linda Sanders as part of the OzFeathers’ banners collection.
Fabric leadlight is exactly that – the creation of images & scenes which are cut from glowing flag fabric and heat-weld-sewn in similar fashion as leadlight glass.
Results are incredible; like a mass of Cathedral windows where the sun’s radiance casts a mesmeric spell, drawing you in closer.
“Oooh, let’s go and have a look!!” (Exactly the aim of OzFeathers’ Brilliant Marketing Banners – once curiosity is aroused, then, hurrah! That’s advertising success!)
Large kites, flown by experts from fixed locations at heights up to 100 metres, with masses of flag banners on the ground will draw the crowds in over 27 & 28 August.
Redcliffe is sure to make neighbouring towns envious, when tens of thousands of visitors start flocking this weekend. Be there, and share the buzz with your family.
With Churches becoming more and more high-tech like Guy Sebastian’s Paradise Church, advertising flair is becoming a must-have.
Feather banner advertising is being used more and more to spread the Churches’ welcoming messages.
With full-wave and high-glow colours, artistic style now blends with marketing know-how to expertly showcase each Church’s WOW! to passing traffic.
For Aldinga’s St. Ann’s Church on Main South Road, we initiated our research with photographs of the original 1866 Gothic style building, then focused in on the tower and spire which were added in 1911.
Influenced by those photographs, OzFeathers’ design team created a range of layouts featuring the tower and spire, a background view of the Church Cemetery plus a bold “Welcome” message, intent on showing everyone when St. Ann’s is “open for business”.
Traffic would zoom by at 80kmh in this section of Main South Road, often oblivious to St. Ann’s history and location. Parishioners began to feel they deserved more than a cursory glance and sought our help.
The results speak for themselves – at a funeral held there one weekday afternoon with their feather banner busily waving in full view, the Main South Road traffic temporarily slowed as a mark of respect for an elder statesman’s service.
How can Church groups boost attendance at community-based events held at special times of the year? Family days certainly lend themselves to the adding of colour and motion, and OzFeathers’ mesmeric feathers wave and appeal, whether walking, riding or driving by. (… more public awareness also equals greater attendance numbers!)
Feather banners confidently fuse an aesthetically-pleasing aura with advertising-necessities such as key message and uniqueness.
Why shouldn’t advertising also be art?
OzFeathers’ designs offer attractive, expressive styling and never shirk on the job of hard-work waving.
How important is lifespan in a flag banner? Some can last only for a weekend event while others manage 6 – 8 weeks for a Sale promotion.
Is there a long-term solution to banners which fade?
“Feather Banners” are hand-crafted right here in SA by OzFeathers. These banners are made from a uniquely tougher fabric which comes complete with a UV-inhibitor coating, and are fully-sewn to offer leadlight-window-radiance.
Fully-sewn banners are exactly that – each part of the design is sewn into the material to ensure a longer-lasting and smart-looking waving banner. This is the same fabric used to make the flags for Government House and the Australian Defence Force. TOUGH is the necessary quality.
Think of the stationary sign or flat banner – their job is to tell people where a business is located.
Now consider a rotating and waving feather banner (picture the colourful Parisian Notre Dame window then imagine it dancing boldly in front of the traffic) – and suddenly you have the POWER TO ATTRACT.
Flat and unmoving signs are missed by fast-moving traffic. We’ve all driven past locations not realising they exist, because flat messages don’t move. They don’t appeal.
Feather banners are so-called because they feather in the wind. Mesmeric, like waves on the ocean. “Come over here!…NOW!” they command!
Willunga is home base for OzFeathers’ personalised feather banners, and designs are now being shipped globally: each one created individually and crafted to customers’ particular desires.
Design advice and initial layouts are offered as part of the complete package in street marketing. Logos are no problem. Cleverly-designed images add sparkle. First, think bright, and then, think bold.
It’s vital for businesses to be DIFFERENT.
Traffic passes so many mass-produced printed banners which all blur into sameness.
DIFFERENT makes a mark.
DIFFERENT creates a lasting impression.
DIFFERENT intrigues and entices…
How many cars drive by every day?
Each is potentially a new customer, so show them you’re OPEN for their business, by making sure your street marketing looks extremely inviting and lasts for a long… LONG… L-O-N-G time.
Summer in USA, Europe and Asia brings everyone outdoors. Shops are keen to boost their sales figures and families go seeking fresh-air outdoor events.
OzFeathers in Willunga say that their feather banners have never been so much in demand.
“Business owners want to spruce up their shopfronts – their “face” to the public. After a dreary winter season, no-one wants to be seen with last season’s peeling paint or drab-looking flag banners.”
For family days and outdoor fete organisers, these superior-quality event-markers succeed in attracting widespread attention. Just as we might notice the white tip of a dog’s tail as it bounds past, the bouncing wave of feather banners is guaranteed to attract the eye faster than any static signage.
Human nature is such that we’re drawn to colour and movement, and feather banners offer the added benefit of happily working with eco-friendly (and FREE!) sunlight and wind energy.
The wind acts as the motor, driving the flag banner’s energetic movement in even the slightest breeze.
Sunlight supplies the glow factor, producing the same effect on the fabric (being backlit) as that seen in Cathedral stained glass windows.
“No other fabric offers the same “Come here!” qualities, where a whisper of breeze and glorious sunshine are all that’s needed to turn the hum-drum-ordinary into stunningly appealing advertising.”
