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.”

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.
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.
