Ideas for Customising Your Next Corporate Gift

A beautiful customized gift is an excellent way to connect with your esteemed clients, old or new. In the sea of competitors, you need to stand out. You can take the easy way out by simply adding a logo to the usual suspects – water bottles, thumb drives, towels or pouches.

Here at Qua, we aspire to help you make the most distinctive gifts, designed from scratch, with your vision and identity – just what you need to elevate your brand. We work with designers that can help you customise a new shape, or work out suitable sizes for your product. Our panel of artists with varying painting styles translates your ideas into a long-lasting, luscious lacquerware gift.

We have four creative ideas to consider:

 

1. Paintings

Miniaturise meaningful art pieces on your wall into beautiful lacquerware accessories. The Port Authority of Singapore (PSA) did just that – Singapore artist & recipient of Cultural Medallion, Mr. Ong Kim Seng’s paintings were immortalised into various merchandise.

 

Nikko Asset Management had an amazing closet artist among their staff who loves painting botanicals across Asia, and they had transformed her paintings into lacquer coasters to gift to their VIPs.

2. Greetings and Well-Wishes

The Development Bank of Singapore sent festive greetings and well-wishes to her top clients, using luscious red shimmery coasters embellished with mother-of-pearl. What made the customisation even more meaningful is that the Chinese calligraphy words were written by a Senior Executive at the bank.

 

 

3. Office Premises and Buildings
Our little city-state has quite a number of iconic buildings, and for those of us who are fortunate enough to be based there, the key elements of the architecture and façade can serve as inspiration for some of the quirky merchandise.

 

4. A Very Special Artwork

Still stuck on what to gift? We’ve got a great idea that allows you to do good and get a uniquely designed artwork. At Qua, we work with differently-abled artists who are able to incorporate your company’s ethos and brand values, often offering a completely different perspective of our everyday world.

 

SMRT commissioned Glenn Phua, a student from Pathlight School, an autism-focused school to draw our train moving against the backdrop of Singapore public housing and our lush greenery.

 

You may consider artists from Very Special Arts Singapore (vsa.org.sg), a local charity organisation dedicated to providing opportunities for people with disabilities to be involved in the arts.

 

We look forward to hearing from you to customise your next corporate gift that is impactful, culturally and contextually appropriate!
