In December last year I submitted an article which was published in Spice News, I know, a bit fancy right? It covered the Top 3 event themes for 2018. The process of writing this article got me seriously inspired about our work at JAK and the ideas we had created and the wonderful events we have produced. It’s not often we take the time to gather our thoughts in that way to reflect and assess. And perhaps we should! All to often we are looking ahead to the next thing that needs our attention as opposed celebrating our achievements.
Every year we encounter a few clients who are short on time for taking care of their ‘End of Year Celebrations’. As a result we have become quite savvy at navigating these short turnarounds to ensure them a spectacular event regardless.
This week JAK Creative worked with our friends at A LIST Guide to create an Express Guide to Christmas styling. You can read the original article here or read on for the JAKspiration version! Read More
Arrangements and table styling. Installations, chandeliers and walls. There is not too much in event spaces we won’t put a flower with or on. And everyone seems to feel the same way!

Interactive took out the crown as your Favourite Element of Design for our JAK Creative Info Graphic Art Installation/Crafternoon! No surprises here! We have been living and breathing this as an idea both conceptually and physically for quite some time. And we absolutely love creating spaces that perform this task. It’s a ‘design win’ to create a space that engages people effectively.
Sovereign Hill’s amazing Winter Wonderlights installation has been declared complete for another year. A tourism highlight of the Melbourne Winter Calendar, the Winter Wonderlights festival attracts over 100,000 visitors! People travel from near and far, rugged up in beanies, scarves and mittens, to enjoy a fun-filled day of Christmas in July celebrations. Even Bec Judd made it to Ballarat to shoot a special segment for Postcards!
These are ‘big statement’ pieces designed to convey a mood, a look or a message. They are a wonderful way to integrate art into an event space or interior. The options are limitless. Read More
The ‘Luxe’ one for the Winter. So dreamy, dark, moody and dramatic. Here we focus on depth of colour and making sure you have more than one in your bag of tricks! Textures are prized in the way of velvety fabrics, tufted finishes and textures, particularly for wall finishes like panelling and mouldings. It’s essential to include some neutral tones to temper the palette. Blacks, greys and even navys are perfect for this, but I love a splash of gold too for a lift. Read More
This colour combination used to be something I avoided at all costs. The accounts below will give you an insight into my first impressions of green and gold as a specific visual communication. Read More
We are right in you now Winter!
Our friends at Complete Function Hire recently asked us to share our thoughts on Winter Trends. Article here. http://blog.cfhire.com/winter-event-style-trends-jak-creative/
Turns out I enjoyed it SO much that I decided upon creating an extended version of our Winter Trends right here!
Each week we will feature a prediction from our Winter Top 5. I hope they inspire you too!
