Andrew Watson Design provided Queensland Tourism Industry Council with trophies that truly represent the natural beauty Queensland offers to passionate travellers. Choosing Andrew Watson Design to design and manufacture the trophies for the 2009, 2010, 2011 & 2012 Queensland Tourism Awards, made sure the trophies presented were a true reflection of Queensland.
According to Mr Andrew Watson, creative director “the trophies designed and manufactured by Andrew Watson design were inspired by the diverse range of natural landscapes that exist in Queensland, the trophies were created to reflect this aesthetic”. This unique, creative and contemporary approach was what caught the eye of the awards organizers.
Andrew Watson design uses their collaborative engagement model to create significant artefacts like the Queensland Tourism Award trophies that reflects the values, beliefs and culture of the client. Like all Andrew Watson Design artefacts, the trophies were constructed from recyclable materials including aluminium and glass. “Considering the environmental impact and sustainable nature of the life cycle of any product is extremely important when producing artefacts that are expected to survive over time” says Andrew Watson.
