Search & Rescue Chopper Team Mugs

The 2018 Tasmania Police helicopter search and rescue team needed some tough duty travel mugs with their own logo. Presumably caffeine is needed when you get a call-out at 8pm to search for a missing bushwalker! It was important that the chopper wasn't just any chopper, but specifically a Kawasaki BK 117, just like the one the crew fly in. You've probably seen its bright yellow and red colour scheme zooming across the skies of Hobart.


The logo SAMBATIKI designed and illustrated from scratch not only includes this specific chopper, but reflects the land, sea and air nature of the rescue crew's activities. Laser engraving the metallic coating on the mugs allowed the plain steel underneath to become the logo design, thanks to some excellent technology used by Tasmanian Trophy House.
