Across the world Covid-19 continues to spread as governments, healthcare workers and nations battle to control the pandemic. Firstly, we want to say thank you to all working tirelessly to protect the public; from NHS staff to those in supermarkets ensuring that shelves are as full as possible. For today’s blog, we have chosen five custom awards that characterise what’s going on.
#Stayconnected As millions across the globe move to Zoom, Skype, Facetime and Netflix, and Disney+ goes into overdrive, the humble cable is celebrated in our first award. The client provided the CAD model used in the production of the cable to replicate the exact dimensions of the product in the final piece. Using the SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) 3D-printing process, polyamide material was bound together to create the body of the award before the award was given a celebratory gold finish mounted onto the gloss base, engraved and infilled by hand.
#Keepsmiling Did you know that laughter is proven to reduce anxiety and stress, lower blood pressure and improve overall mood? Whilst there is uncertainty about the Edinburgh Fringe Fest going ahead, why not stick on one of your favourite stand ups, catch up on some comedy classics or share some memes? The bespoke award, sponsored by UK comedy channel Dave, has graced the podium of the UK’s premiere comedy event. 2019’s awards, presented by Stephen Fry, who won the inaugural award as part of the Cambridge Footlights back in 1981, were won by:
- Best Newcomer 2019: Catherine Cohen.
- Panel Prize: Jessica Brough
- Best Show 2019: Jordan Brookes.
#ThankYou In these uncertain times we want to celebrate all healthcare professionals for providing care to our most needy. With healthcare systems under strain across the world, medical professionals must be applauded for their bravery and dedication. Our custom ECG Award, was produced for a leading healthcare provider and features a satin base and precision engineered, colour matched body.
Netflix? Sky Go? Streaming? However you watch your films be sure that you check out what’s happening in Empire Magazine. The historic publication is the leading film magazine in the country and the awards have been won by the biggest names in the industry. With the country on lockdown, now is the perfect time to binge films with your family and friends. The Empire Award was custom cast and finished in a beautiful nickle polish before the lettering was added.
Global travel is down and with it so are CO2 emissions. Whatsmore, with factories and manufacturing on hold, we’re witnessing a serious drop in pollutants. Our Eco-Friendly award is an ode to this trend and also a celebration of how, since the crisis has started, daily walks have become a part of our new life.
