The Roses Design Awards
The Roses Design Awards are now in their sixth year. And, to celebrate, a record number of hopefuls packed into Manchester’s Palace Hotel to find out who had been been awarded the Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards.
The panel of judges, which was chaired by Richard Village of Fortune Street, consisted of Jamie Gladstone, Imagination; Marcello Mario Minale, Minale Tattersfield and Partners; freelance designer Simon Griffin; Clare Sheffield, Williams Murray Hamm; and Paul Dennis of 400 Communications.
The Chase caught the imagination of the judges, winning two golds, a silver and a bronze. The agency also scooped the coveted Chairman’s Award for its work for Manchester Dogs’ Home.
Like A River also enjoyed a successful evening, winning one Gold, two Silvers and three bronzes. The Manchester-based agency’s achievements were also acknowledged with the Design Team of the Year prize.
Meanwhile, Golds were also presented to Hemisphere, JCB (Design Works), Brahm, B&W Studio, True North, Mark, Love, dare!, Poulters, Sumo, RPA Communications By Design, Magnetic North and Bubble.
Scotland-based winners included Edinburgh-based Teviot, which landed a Gold and the Grand Prix award for its Bethany Christian Trust Annual Report. Glasgow-based Stand was also celebrating after picking up two Golds (Tennent’s and Glasgow International) and two Silvers (Hothouse and Tennent’s) while designer Emlyn Firth landed the Young Designer of the Year accolade.
