Gaudio's 2022 Round-Up

As the year comes to a close, we’ve gathered just a few of our favourite moments from 2022.

The Engagement Excellence Awards

The Engagement Excellence Awards were presented at a stunning ceremony at London’s Guildhall, and winners received a bespoke award. The event recognises businesses and leaders that make the workplace better and drive employee engagement.

Each award is a personalised keepsake with an exceptional finish; a fantastic example of how logos and elements of brand can be brought to life as part of a bespoke design.  The profiled star shape, seen across the Engagement Excellence event, uses layering for a floating effect. Solid aluminium sits on hard-wearing acrylic, giving the logo a brushed gold finish. To complete this custom trophy, each one is engraved and printed with winners’ details.

“We have been working with Gaudio for several years now on our awards ceremony trophies and the result is always superb, hence why we keep coming back! Jamie is a pleasure to work with and makes the whole process easy from start to finish, along with ensuring we have built in time to receive and check the trophies for any accidental damages etc. before the awards ceremony, although we’ve never had any issues as they’re always packaged so thoroughly. I would absolutely recommend Gaudio for high quality service and products.”

Leonie Williamson - Head of Brand, Reward Gateway


The new and improved Gaudio website launched earlier this year, with in-depth content and an easier way to navigate our archives. Browsing our collection of bespoke awards has never been easier, with useful tags to look through styles, shapes and colours!

Case studies give insight into the design process for iconic awards for the likes of Coca Cola, MasterChef, and Investors in People, and our new enquiry form makes it simple to get the information you need about awards for your next event.

Check back in 2023 to see more of our design and manufacturing process as we share insights across products, news posts and case studies.

The British Travel Awards

The British Travel Awards are a staple on the calendar, and this year an exciting new design element took centre stage. This years’ awards were crafted from responsibly sourced wood, embracing all the variations offered by natural materials.

The original silhouette was designed to resemble a traditional ‘cup’ style award, but upon closer inspection it’s actually a modern take on the classic, crafted as a single, freestanding piece. The British Travel Awards have stayed consistent with their awards over the years, no matter the material; whether solid aluminium or recycled acrylic, painted or printed. With such a well-established trophy, changing the core material can make a big impact on the look and feel of the award.

Responsibly-sourced wooden components are something our team love to utilise in designs both new and old. Showcasing beautiful natural features, these custom trophies display unique patterns in the wood grain and subtle variations in colour, without compromising on a consistently smooth texture and high-quality finish. With the same print, personalised for each winner, the British Travel Awards were able to stick with their well-loved design while exploring other eco-friendly options.

Gaudio Shop: Off-The-Shelf Awards Made Easy

When ordering something bespoke, having the support and reassurance of an excellent customer service team is invaluable. For Gaudio, this means our expert Account Managers are on-hand to help with queries, design recommendations and production information.

For off-the-shelf trophies, we wanted to create a site that our team could support, while also offering a cost-efficient, super speedy option.

Gaudio Shop offers high-quality, off-the-shelf awards that can be customised and ordered online. With self-proofing, Gaudio Shop provides a flexible experience, meaning you can order when you’re ready, at competitive prices.

The on-site configurator means you can input your logo and winners’ details on an award of your choice, see a live proof, and place the order all in one go. Whether you’re looking for additional trophies, are pulling together a last-minute event, or just love the look and feel of a classic crystal trophy, Gaudio Shop was created with simplicity in mind, when organising an event is anything but.

The Official Charts Fan Award

We’ve worked with the Official Charts for many years, and created bespoke awards for chart-topping albums and record-breaking artists.

This year, we collaborated with the Official Charts Company on their brand new Official Charts Shop, and created the Number 1 Fan Award. The Fan Award is a replica of the iconic Official Charts award, and exclusive to the new online store. The award is personalised online, so fans can celebrate the hits with their favourite artists!

These collectors pieces launched with boy band The Wanted, and expanded to celebrate Jack Savoretti’s Number 1 Album. The Official Charts also celebrated the 70th Anniversary of the singles chart, with a release of  a limited edition Fan Award for music lovers worldwide.

What's in store for 2023?

From all of us at Gaudio, we’d like to say a big thank you to our customers this year, old and new, for working with us to celebrate every occasion.
