Navyblue's 'We Can

We have all been warned that, in this job, you have to learn to take the rough with the smooth. Whisked off to Paris to stay in the luxurious Novotel Tour Eiffel, a champagne cruise on the Seine, a stunning awards bash at Les Pavillons De Bercy – a magical and nostalgic converted fairground museum – and celebrations that lasted well into the next morning ... this was definitely the smooth.

(The rough, if you must have it, was the morning plane journey back to Glasgow nursing a mighty hangover gained by sitting in the bar with a group of Geordie designers until four in the morning.)

The Consort Royal Design and Print Awards, hosted by Howard Smith and Scheufelen paper, were as smooth as they come. Celebrating the best design and print work to be created on Consort Royal paper, this year’s awards in Paris continued the now legendary theme of cultural cities and special settings, following on from the grandeur of last year that was Barcelona.

And while Scottish agencies might not have done too well at the Roses this year, the Consort Royal Awards were a different matter.

With Newton.eh6, Graphic Partners, Navyblue and Nevis representing the designers, Summerhall Press, Nimmos and Woods of Perth all made sure that the Scottish print industry was well represented too.

It was, however, American-based Pentagram design and Peake Printers who won the top award on the night for their combined work on 2wice, which also scooped a Gold award in each of its respective categories.

A good mix of companies and individuals from all over the UK, as well as the United States, was represented among the 152 guests, 111 client winners and six members of the press, enjoying the ceremonies.

This year the high-profile list of design judges included Joe Hall of Blue Peach; Brigitte Herrod of London-based Herrod Design; Martin Lowe, head of marketing graphics at French Connection Group; Alan Whitfield, creative director at NE6; and Greg Quinton, creative director at The Partners.

Judging the print categories were Mike Bacon, chairman of Park Lane Press, James Dark, MD at statexcolourprint; Andrew Hall, commercial director of Woods of Perth; Carole Hammersley of Wedgwood; and Mike Roberts, sales director at The colourhouse.

The judges praised the standard of the work entered, highlighting a number of pieces for special mention, including the Special Prize winner, 2wice.
