Graphic design consultancy Cubic and interiors group Philip Watts Design triumphed at the inaugural Nottingham Creative Awards, which took place last week at the ballroom of Nottingham City Council House.
Philip Watts Design won for its work on the Yo! Sushi restaurants chain, while Cubic received the graphics award for its company book.
Other winners on the night included CPMG Architects, which collected the Exterior Design Award for its work on Coundon Court School in Coventry, the Together Agency for its Weetabix advertising campaign and the Moot Gallery, which won the Visual Arts award.
Paul Hough, creative business manager at the Nottingham Creative Network, says, ‘These awards celebrate Nottingham as a creative city, increasing its visibility and changing people’s attitudes to the city. We hope to put out a call for entries for the next awards as soon as possible.’
A book – due to be published by Christmas – and exhibition will showcase the winners. There is no set venue for the exhibition as yet, but Hough claims ‘it will be take place at venues across the city leading up to the next awards in 2008’.
