Behind the Scenes: Red Tiki T-Shirt Design

 

If you visit the island this month you're likely to see some slaves looking very dapper in their brand new Red Tiki t-shirts. The shirts were designed in house by the super duper talented designer they call... Ado! This post gives you a sneak peek into the process of conceptualising and refining the design from the hand drawn grassroots beginnings to the final product printed at The Fabric Printer

The Story of Professor Jimmy Choo

Last month the lucky Red Tiki social media team worked on The Story of Professor Jimmy Choo OBE Exhibition at Claremont Quarter in Perth, Australia.

This week a Futurama 3D video was uploaded to the Internet, sparking my passion for fandom and unapologetic copyright infringing web media once more. The video was made by Alexy Zakharov, a digital artist and animator based in Moscow. It works as a neat little teaser for a world that could be fleshed out further if Matt Groening and the powers that be weren’t already pondering the possibilities. Bonus points to this video for also using music from Forrest Gump to give it ...

The Awesome Potato Salad Kickstarter

Why the Kickstarter Campaign "I'm Making Potato Salad" is Awesome. 

Usain Bolt can sprint 100 metres in 9.58 seconds. Dolly Parton writes hit songs and has an Imagination Library for kids in the Dollywood Foundation. Neil Armstrong has hurtled through time and space and walked on the moon.

If you haven’t seen the protest advertisement from Greenpeace emphasizing that LEGO should end its partnership with the oil company Shell see it here.


Now let’s talk about it.


I’m very passionate about social media and digital strategy, which are growing departments here at Red Tiki Island. But I am torn when it comes to figuring out if this advertisement works for me or not.

Meet the Red Tiki Slaves

There are a whole bunch of us slaving away on Red Tiki Island and we want you to get to know us!

The Red Tiki King has been steadily growing his empire over the past few years and we’ve got a whole bunch of fresh slaves with mad skills doing digital.

We thought it was about time to formally introduce the slave crew to you. So our resident photog, Boz shot the slaves in their two modes; professional and tiki party style!

Check out the album on Facebook for the full photo spread & see if there’s a slave or two you recognise. We tend to get around ;)
