  • How Gumtoo creates custom tattoo designs for brands

    Temporary tattoos are fascination and liked by almost everyone. Customised tattoos are one step ahead of the normal ones, in a way that they can actually be a representation of one’s choices, moods, personality etc.

    Gumtoo offers a vast range to customised tattoos designed with consent and approval of the brand. Many brands often use temporary tattoos side by side during their promotional events and marketing.

    The designing and manufacturing of temporary tattoos for brands by Gumtoo is a refined step by step process. The steps are elaborated below:

    First expression of the client:

    The making of custom temporary tattoo is initiated by the background of product and use of tattoos by the client. They are asked to summarise the business following by their expectations with the tattoo to be used.

    For instance, AC Ryan, one of our clients, a Dutch brand which creates products for the music and entertainment industry, summed up its plan to use tattoos.  They were keen on using a fresh design, related to Karaoke for their new launched ‘Karaoke Sound Bar.’ The product was to be showcased in a prominent trade show at Singapore where the company aimed to attract the audience with temporary tattoos as icing on the cake.

    Design Requirements:

    Brands often have their creative team, which gives the pre-requisites of their requirements in the designs. They specify the key ingredients to be used in the art form which has to be manufactured and also tells about the final message which the tattoo must convey. As in the case of AC Ryan, they made it very clear that the promotional tattoo must contain Clients logo and a Karaoke Image. The custom design had to be vibrant as the theme set by them was ‘FUN.’

    Proposal based on demand:

    Next is offering a blueprint on the basis of demand put up by the client. Gumtoo takes the client’s wishes on a very serious note and considers every minute detail while drafting tattoos. We often put up more than one proposal in front of the clients. For AC, Ryan Gumtoo came up with three exclusive design drafts which it tabled before them to choose from.

    The final selection:

    Gumtoo believes in giving its customer a privileged experience. Hence, we consult them at every step and welcome suggestions for any changes. The final design thus is a pictorial representation of the customer’s thoughts about the tattoo. The following design was finalised by AC Ryan after we added their additional suggestions to it.

    At, Gumtoo we believe in doing things the Customer’s way. ‘Celebrate Life with Gumtoo’ is our motto and we stand by it every single time. Right from the designing stages of the custom tattoo to the manufacturing ones, Gumtoo does make sure that fun never ends!!!

    Engaging kids at the Tattoo booth:

    Kids love to don tattoos, hence engaging them to a temporary tattoo booth is an activity which can show them the importance of teamwork and helping out.  With an easy tutorial of applying the tattoo, organisers can encourage kids to apply them to others, thereby invoking in them a sense of community work. This may sound vague but can prove a significant step towards building a positive tomorrow for kids.

    Temporary tattoos for kids, often are customised tattoos based on the event. The designs have to appeal to kids and more importantly must be suited for the event in which they appear.  Not only at fun events but temporary tattoos can be a way to involve kids in charity events. With a temporary tattoo booth at the place, children easily dissolve in the environment and contribute towards the cause in all possible ways.

  • Jingle All the Way: 7 Interesting Ways to Engage Your Employees at Work this Christmas

    This is the season of giving and receiving, of plum cakes and wine and of celebrating the birth of Christ; why then should you not treat your employees to a little holiday cheer at work. Keep them motivated for the next year that would arrive in a week, and show them who the big daddy is? The big daddy cares, and hence a little fun at work with these seven fun activities can do wonders!

    Seven best ideas to choose from

    They aren’t only ideas for fun, but ideas that would help employees think out of the box and help with marketing promos and ideas for your companies’ products and services too. The idea is to treat each employee as a customer; internal customers kept happy, and they would bring in more customers from outside!

    Play Sign up

    Begin now and speak to your IT team at work to set up a small portal (intranet enabled) for the office staff only. Open up a page of HACKS, which educates your employees about the products and services your company makes, and how it could help them shop, save and enjoy a better Christmas. Throw in daily deals and alerts, and encourage them to sign up too. Announce freebies and coupons at the end of the season, and let the rest keep waiting with baited breath for the bumper prize on Christmas.

    Hide Christmas stockings around nooks and corners

    Not a word to mention, but do get your housekeeping team to fill in stockings with notes (small chits which has prizes quoted on them). Hang these precious stockings in various colours across the workplace- at lunch when most are unaware and for 5 minutes only, announce a competition where the employees would have to find a note which says “Santa Claus is coming to town”- the team that finds the stocking first, gets the bumper prize.

    Wrapping lines

    Form two teams at work and make them stand in two snakes lines each. Place two tables for each team. The idea is to watch team work and to encourage team building. Place scissors, glue, paper and marbles on each table. Give each team 20 seconds (per person) to create a paper box with the props given, in which they would fill in 10 marbles (seems impossible). Each box with marbles needs to be delivered to the boss’s cubicle. The box with less than ten marbles would be rejected!

    Play word find

    Use Christmassy tags around the work place- some too big, some too small and some very tiny- place them around the cubicle, the workstation, the cafeteria and the water-drinking area too. Now send out an email with a subtle hint to what you want them to find. The team or individual who gets all ten right, wins a hamper.

    Pose like a diva

    Organize a photo session or a photo booth and ask your team to use props like temporary tattoos and to pose with them. The most creative, whackiest and funniest snapshot goes live and wins a hamper!

    Christmas memory game

    Divide the office into as many teams as possible and ask them to chant out the number of products or services impromptu your company brought out to the market, acquired or is in the pipeline for 2015! Give them no time to prepare!

    Bake a plum cake game

    Organize two teams and ask them to bake two large enough plum cakes at work (raw materials and resources provided by you) emulating the company’s products and services. The winning team gets a hamper!

    It is but a jolly good season to be engaged and to engage others around in a little pokey fun! While doing so, remember you not only would keep your staff motivated, but would help them think out of the box and market your brand too!

  • 5 Interesting Ways You Can Enchant Your Office Colleagues

    fun-at-work-ideas Photo Credit: kenexa.com

    ‘FUN AT WORK’, who wouldn’t want their little dose of witticisms and plenty of laughter around, while crunching numbers and meeting deadlines! Every self-respecting employee across the world would raise their hands to this idea. And with that being said, as an owner of a prestigious venture or a boss leading a team, keeping your sheep happy, brings in more wool. Here are five funny games that you could play at work, which resonate with team building and interpersonal relationships at work. Read and apply dear boss!

    Who stole my sheep?

    fun_party_games_at_office

    This is a fairly relative new game which has just started doing the rounds, where there would be two teams respectively. The aim is to create team building while enjoying a BBQ on the office terrace one Friday evening after work- helps bond employees closer. Grab a box of woolen bales, glue sticks and accessories for the eyes, the nose and the tail. Each team in less than five minutes would have to create as many sheep as possible (they are allowed to rob from the other team a finished sheep too) and submit it at the customers’ corner (the boss’s table). Since the woolen bales would be of the same colour, even when robbed there is no telling who robbed how many. The aim is to coordinate and count while production happens, and keep an eye on the miscreant competitor’s ways too.

    Haute couture at work

    Divide the office staff into three or four teams, and hand out old newspaper sheets, cardboard boxes, glue sticks, pins and colorful ribbons. The aim is to dole out stylish gowns to the boss for his daughters first prom. Each team would have a gown each made from the props given and submitted in ten minutes to the boss. Believe us when we say, this is one team building exercise that wouldn’t want to stop.

    Bake a mud cake

    For this you would need plenty of nursery mud, a few earthen pots, plastic hand-shovels and a couple of colorful leaves made from plastic to use as embellishments. Think it is easy to make a mud cake; no it isn’t! Not when it is DRY MUD. The challenge here is to make a DRY MUD CAKE, sans moisture in it and with colorful toppings. Seems impossible but the client’s demands have to be met!

    Play bridal doll up

    Divide the office staff in groups of four, and hand over a box of skin-friendly cosmetic paints to them. Show them four to five exotic bridal make-up photographs of your choice from ethnic pages online and across the world. The models would only be the women in the team, while the challenge falls on the men, and without a word spoken and the women blindfolded, the women would guide the men with hand gestures on applying the motifs and makeup on their face. Time limit would be five minutes per team- impress the boss.

    Lady GaGa at work

    While the party is on, set a theme to that of Lady GaGa and ask every team to speak and communicate with the customer (the boss) only in a song chosen by him or her. Whatever they wish to tell you or ask from you, should be in a line or two from the song chosen by you (only Lady GaGa songs). The idea is to communicate effectively, even though a real-life client may not understand jargons and yet needs your services.

    Here were five funny games that haven’t been played before but would become hits for sure, when everyone indulges in them. The winning team obviously would be honoured with gifts and prizes; mementos galore. And when all is well and happy, there is more productivity too! Have fun!
