Awards fit for Royalty May 16, 2018 11:38
Welcome back to the Creative Awards blog where we bring you the very latest in our custom made awards, designs and more. In today’s entry we doth our caps, stand straight and look forward to a weekend of monarchical celebration with the Royal Wedding. As such, we have chosen five awards fit for royalty.
This Saturday sees St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle in the spotlight as royalty, politicians and celebrities descend upon the castle to join Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in celebrating their very special day. With a firm and fair nod towards the Royal Wedding we offer the gift of our awards to the royal couple and show off five awards that are fit for royalty and that capture a sense of Britishness.
We kick start our homage to the young couple with one of our latest bespoke acrylic perspex awards the Caribbean Blue Wave Block. Commissioned by one of the world’s most famous luxury cruise companies, the award is made from a tinted blue acrylic that changes colour when the award is moved as the light refracts within. A hand cut gold anchor/crown motif decorates the front of the award adding a royal splendour and sparkle for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. To finish the award, a special technique (MI5 top secret we add) was applied to top of the award to create wave effects.
Anyone for a spot of tea? What could be more British than teatime, well it depends on who you ask but we think that it is one of the most British of drinks at least. We toast the royals with this handmade porcelain teapot award. The quintessentially British award, features the royal coat of arms in a lush, gold colour and is engraved with the words of Sting’s very British song ‘Englishman in New York’.
We fly the flag for Queen and country with our special commission for one of the U.K’s leading charities. Commissioned by the charity Blind Veterans UK, the custom designed acrylic plaque is made from profiled multicoloured acrylic layers. We capture the charity’s colour scheme and the nation’s flag for this very worthwhile work. The bespoke acrylic plaque was entirely hand assembled and finished in house to create this magnificent and impressive design. What makes this award particularly special is that the back features a textured finish for the visually impaired recipients to feel.
How could we compile a royal list without mentioning the crown jewels in country? London! London has a special place in our hearts as not only are we based in the centre of the city but many of our staff were born and raised in the nation’s capital. We capture over 700 years of history in this bespoke metal award for the City of London Corporation by using the image of the legendary gryphon that is a symbol of the famed city.
We look back to Harry’s ancestor’s with this special commission for the RIBA Regent Street Windows Project. The award pairs exceptional RIBA architects with flagship retailers in one of the World's most famous shopping districts to create engaging architectural installations in their shop windows.
Without further ado, we would like to wish the young couple a very enjoyable day and the best of luck in their new lives together. For more information on any of our awards contact our teams today via firstname.lastname@example.org or 0207 242 4020.
