We designed this collection of awards for A&W Canada. Each award style represents a different achievement but, they all relate to each other by using the same design language (materials and typography). Creating a cohesive collection of awards is always a challenge but, we were able to deliver and exceed the clients expectations. These awards were all custom designed and handcrafted by us in our Vancouver location.
A custom design specifically for the 2017 Canadian Mining Hall of Fame Awards ceremony. We crafted these by hand with each metal panel being formed at random to reference the natural layers of the earths surface and subsurfaces. An organic approach together with our state of the art machinery ensured the final product represented a work of art rather than an award.
We recently handcrafted an award that was presented to music legend Moby!
We were commissioned by Gap Inc. (USA) to design these custom awards for their annual conference. With a client like Gap, naturally we were keen to stay on brand; our combination of anodized aluminum and denim maintains a modern style award while referencing Gap’s roots. The incorporation of denim is an unusual choice for an award but, in this instance it worked beautifully. We understand our clients brands and are bold enough to propose unique designs.
We custom designed and handcrafted these eco friendly long service awards for Finagraph, USA. Created from recovered Pine Beetlewood (Denim Pine, Blue Pine) and brushed aluminum, these awards are unique and modern.
We custom designed and handcrafted these long service awards for our client at VSE in San Jose, USA. We collaborated with our client on the design which was an honour and a great experience for all involved. The outcome was a truly unique design that will be appreciated for many years to come.
Over the next few weeks we will be sharing some of our favourite projects from 2016.
The project above was a commission from Hockey Canada. We were requested to design a hall of fame award for their new inductees. The idea behind the design was to use the shape of 4 hockey stick handles and create the award around that size. The four sticks can be seen through the maple leaf relief cut, designed as a "peekaboo" detail. The wood was then affixed in-between two water jet cut aluminum panels. A modern design that is simple and elegant.
The first recipient was Scott Niedermayer, he is a Canadian former ice hockey defenceman and current Special Assignment Coach of the Anaheim Ducks. He played 18 seasons and over 1,000 games in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the New Jersey Devils and Anaheim Ducks. Niedermayer is a four-time Stanley Cup champion and played in five NHL All-Star Games.
Ooyala is one of the world’s largest premium video platforms and a leading ad serving platform. Ooyala helps connect viewers with their interests, audiences with advertising, and analytics insights to business strategies.
After meeting with Ooyala, the goal was to create an award representing their corporate core values: innovation, custom focus, transparency, hustle and respect. This was a challenging project as we wanted to create a final design that expressed all of these values. The final piece was a simple, dynamic and colourful corporate custom recognition award that showcases their corporate core values.
The 2016 ABMA/AGMA Annual Meeting took place in Amelia Island, FL in May where friends and colleagues gathered to celebrate 100 years of success for both ABMA and AGMA. The meeting featured keynote presentations from well-known individuals such as Mayor Rudy Giuliani and David Gergen. ABMA hosted a dinner for over one hundred past and present members while guests enjoyed a special presentation from Mr. John M. Timken, Jr. drinks, and live music. We also recognized five global leaders in the bearing manufacturing industry with the Inaugural Industry Icon Award.
