Winners of the 2002 Roses Design Awards were announced last week, with judges singling out graphic designers working in the print medium for special praise.
The Roses, which are only open to designers who work and operate outside of the M25, embrace a wide range of disciplines ranging from website, graphic and product design to packaging and branding.
Chairman of the judges John Sorrell says, ‘This year’s entries were strongest in design for print and the best of the work submitted was of a very good standard.’
Winners include Thompson Design, winning Best Corporate Identity for West Yorkshire Playhouse (pictured). Bristol-based Taxi Studio and Edinburgh’s Redpath shared Best Corporate Literature for their work with Clarks (pictured) and British Council Scotland respectively.
In new media, Glasgow-based Locofoco won Best Animation for its work for RIS; TM3 Productions won Best Website for www.afoundation.com; and Code Computer Love won Best CD-ROM for Airwair.
Elmwood’s Leeds office won two Roses, Best Use of Typography and Best Use of Paper.
Best Packaging was won by The Chase in Manchester for its work with Royal Mail; Graphic Partners won best Annual Report for Scottish Ambulance Service; and Inc Design took Best Direct Mail.
