The winners for The Drum Awards for Design have been revealed, with this year’s top accolades going to the likes of The Guardian, Harley-Davidson and Ikea Canada.
One of the award's big winners was Harley-Davidson and agency Zulu Alpha Kilo, which was recognized for its ’Tough Turban’ initiative which reimagined the standard bike helmet for Sikh motorcyclists. It won for best Physical Product Design and Design for Good as well as the Grand Prix.
The Guardian took home two awards for its ’200 Years, A Work in Progress’ campaign created by agency Oliver, including Best Brand Campaign and Best Art Direction. Judges described it as a ”brilliant integration of idea and design” with ”art direction that doesn’t overwhelm” a ”forward looking narrative” and ”reductive use of space”.
Ikea Canada and its agency Rethink also won in multiple categories – including Editorial Design and Resourceful Design – for its ’Scrapbooks’ initiative, a cookbook featuring 50 recipes and waste-saving tips to help people live more sustainably in their kitchens.
