Handpicked co-created and produced a line of luggages for Europe's leading hospitality institute Mise en Place.
The luggages are originally designed for Mise en Place and have unique features and branding elements. The suitcase even has a build-in USB power charger!
Scroll down to see more pictures and videos about the making of the suitcase.
Another update about the custom made Suit Bag will be soon online too.
The suitcase has an embossed logo. For this branding style a special mould was designed and produced. The below images show the initial design of this unique feature.

Small unique designer details are used; the zipper and a small element in the wheels are produced in corporate red. The luggage was assembled with high quality handles, a combination lock and a water resistant output for the USB charger.
The CEO of a Dutch based architecture firm created an 'out of the box' brief.
As the CEO says, "Sometimes clients must somewhat take a 'gamble' before selecting a specific (preliminary) design. After that it is up to us, the architects to deliver, since the rough strokes from the first drawings need to be replaced by accuracy and finesse."
"The dices represent the playfulness and the “gamble" factor, whereas the box is the main structure holding the creative impulses in check."
Possibly one of the most classic yet popular corporate gifts, the water bottle.
A well-known multinational corporation with its regional head quarters based in South East Asia finalized its launch of a new system.
One must be thirsty to start working with these newly implemented systems. Through Handpicked these beautiful water bottles were gifted to the team members involved. The bottles came with different colour combinations in accordance to the logo colors.
And you know what they say:
"Classics are never out of style.”

One of our latest production are these fun Fortune Cats (a.k.a 招财猫 "Zhao Cai Mao")!
These are high quality porcelain figures adorned with the client's signature red logo on their belly, and on it's hand - proudly holding the icon of the company.
Carousell, the client, is a well-known online mobile and online consumer to consumer marketplace for buying and selling new and secondhand goods. They operate in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Taiwan, Hong Kong and the United States, and would be the go-to platform most locals use to buy or sell items.
At the end of the year 2017 Handpicked experienced what Santa is experiencing every Christmas.
For a client in the Asia Pacific region, Handpicked created and shipped some wonderful gift bags to Malaysia and Singapore.
Each Christmas bag was filled with a few gifts: A cute Teddy Bear wearing a cool "PG10 Hoodie"; a popular fidget spinner and a customised calendar for each country.
Handpicked assisted in the design of every item, managed the production of the customised goods and planned the logistics for the goods to be assembled in Guangzhou prior to shipping it to the different locations.
Please have a look at the pictures below and see what Handpicked did for the production of the bags, the fidget spinners, the Teddy Bears, the different country calendars and more.
As most of you know, China's manufacturing industry has -due to its large scale and capacity- earned itself the title of "The World's Factory".
But apart from the capacity of the factories to mass-produce within a given lead-time, another advantage is that factories are likely to have the variety of material, technology and resources to customise products.

For most firms it is not always a simple task to come up with the prefect idea for a year-end gift. Staff members all have different wishes or needs.
Handpicked worked closely together with the marketing team of Property Guru to create a gift set that would be well received by all their staff members in Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia. And together we come up with the idea to offer a gif-set holding several handy items.
Proper beer presentation is always executed with a brand-respective coaster. One will know once a restaurant or bar truly understands its hospitality profession.
For any beer brand the coaster plays an important role, not only ensuring that either the glass or bottle is safely placed on the table top, but also to add that memorable touch to the total brand experience.
Our clients take great pride in their craft and therefore the production of -what may seem simple- coasters needs to be done with utmost care.
These coasters are made of felt in combination with one of the highest quality rubber; called nitrile rubber. In the handpicked factory all aspects: the thickness, its printing quality and the structure of the non-friction rubber layer, where measured, produced and checked carefully.
All to help create that unforgettable moment.
That present moment when you are taking that first cold sip of beer.

Every year our trucker caps are a big "summer hit".
These snap-back mesh caps have a uniquely designed pocket hidden inside the front panel, with a condom discreetly stashed inside when presented to the receivers. Tying in nicely with their punned tagline "Always On Top". What a cheeky branding, but nevertheless very apt for this brand being one of the Netherlands' top hospitality training institutes.
This pocket has other uses too, it allows the owner to keep an extra 10 dollar note or a single house-key some place safe.
As you can see the caps are almost finished. Very soon this production is ready to be quality-inspected, packed and shipped to the Netherlands.
