Technology & Communications Deal Toys

This section features deal toys and financial tombstones from the technology and communications sectors. In the galleries beginning on this page, you’ll find images of over 250 designs made with a variety of materials including crystal, Lucite, pewter, resin, wood, and marble.

The deal toy designs themselves also play off a range of technological components, including computers, cell phones, circuit boards, and semiconductor wafers; they also highlight a number of disciplines, including robotics, predictive analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), building automation services (BAS), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), and software asset management (SAM).

The transactions also feature some of most recognizable players and names in these sectors. These include Apple, Google, Cox Communications, SAP, Rockwell Automation, and Virgin Media.

But you’ll also encounter less familiar names and deals. These might include, for instance, the initial public offering of an Australian aerial mapping and geospatial technology company, the acquisition of a Florida-based developer of high-performance computational hardware and software, the acquisition of a California manufacturer of integrated circuits for the industrial Internet of things, and an institutional placement for a U.K.-based developer of technology for skin therapy and regeneration.

Finally, in addition to deal toys, you’ll also find pieces related to these sectors but not related to a financial transaction. These include, for example, a wafer-themed employee recognition award designed for a semiconductor firm, and custom awards celebrating such achievements as production launches and patent applications and grants.
