Welsh design recognised at Cardiff Design Festival Awards

The winners of the Cardiff Design Festival Awards 2009 were honoured at a ceremony and awards dinner held in the Welsh capital last night.

View Creative from Conwy won the graphics award for its S4C St David’s Day concept.

Cardiff-based branding group Staziker Jones was recognised for its work on Welsh accountant Macario Lewin’s rebrand.

Kutchibok, also based in Cardiff, won the packaging award for The Celt Experience drinks brand packaging and branding.

Architect Gillard Associates was awarded the spatial design award for its floating office concept.

Several groups won awards for work for clients from outside Wales, including BWA Design from Hay-on-Wye. BWA won the motion award for its WWF Arctic in Your Backyard animated presentation, which will be shown at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in December.

BWA also won in the ‘miscellaneous’ category for its Get up and Grow campaign to encourage people with sedentary lifestyles to become more active.

The winner of the interior design award was Snow Pod, based in Cardiff, for its hotel in the Alpine ski resort of Tignes.

The best website award went to Conwy-based View Creative for its Half Marathon website for the Royal Parks Foundation.

Finally, Cardiff-based Pro Medical Innovations won in the product design category for Safeceps electronic forceps, which feature pressure sensors to prevent damage to babies during difficult births (pictured, with Pro Medical Innovation founder Dale Harper).

    Well done all, some great work on display.
    It would be great to see some Welsh agencies winning a Design Business Association – Design Effectiveness Award in 2010.

    Surely this should be renamed as the Cardiff Design ‘Clique’ Festival Awards?

    I’ve been very impressed by the aesthetic and practical natures of product design projects coming out of UWIC in the past. It is fantastic to see how the good work started there can play out in the ‘real world’.
    Congratulations particularly to Dale Harper. Friends in the medical community here are very excited by the life-saving potential of his Safeceps.
