The awards recognise projects that can demonstrate design’s tangible effect on a client’s business.

A total of twelve gold awards were handed out, with Pearlfisher picking up two. The others went to 300 Million, B&B Studio, Biles Inc, Elmwood, Factory Design, Hornall Anderson UK, NB Studio, WPA Pinfold and Ziggurat Brands.

A total of 26 silver and 21 bronze awards were also given out.
