Yorkshire based laser specialist, Cutting Technologies, has worked alongside award winning design agency, Hacksaw, to create trophies for the design industry’s top prestigious awards.
Cutting Technologies laser cut and engraved 33 awards in total for this year’s Brand Impact Awards.
The awards recognise the very best in branding design in association with Computer Arts and Creative Bloq, with shortlisted companies having worked on projects for global names such as Aston Villa, Ascot, Coors Light, Argos and The University of Cambridge.
The designs were created by Kyle Wilkinson, director of Hacksaw and saw Cutting Technologies laser cut the awards for winners, best in show and highly commended in brass, copper and stainless steel respectively.
The trophies are made of 13 individual laser cut ‘fins’, with one coloured fin to signify highly commended, winner and best in show, the recipient was then laser engraved in to the fin.
Jane Robinson, director and co-founded of Cutting Technologies, said: “We’re very proud to, once again, be involved with the devolvement of these trophies. These awards are for the very best in design, and it’s only fitting that the trophies Kyle designed are of such a high standard.”
Nick Carson, editor of Computer Arts, said: “Following a hugely successful collaboration in 2015, we are delighted to be working with Kyle Wilkinson and Cutting Technologies again. Their stunning trophies really take the awards ceremony to the next level, and we were flooded with positive feedback about them last year from the world’s top agencies.”
Kyle said: “The key to a successful and effective brand, is bringing together a variety of elements in a consistent and coherent package. That’s why the awards are made of individual segments that join together creating a futuristic and minimalistic trophy which can sit pride of place in any studio.”
