Response to Effectiveness Awards is huge

More than 80 design consultancies and almost 100 clients have been shortlisted for the second round of the Design Business Association’s Design Effectiveness Awards.

Entries were up by more than 100 per cent for this year’s awards, and an 8 per cent increase in the number of projects selected for the second round suggests that the quality of work has improved upon last year, says a DBA spokeswoman.

Shortlisted groups, which include BDG/McColl, Design Bridge, Glazer, Elmwood, Imagination and The Partners, have until 16 August to submit additional performance data to support their initial entry.
