What does the term, ‘bespoke awards’, really mean to us? Individual, unique, designed for the exact requirements of our customers and made-to-order. We take all our customers’ requirements into account when designing their awards, with the aim to design quality pieces which genuinely epitomise the customer’s brand and the ethos of the event for which they’re designed. Gaudio is proud of its heritage in making bespoke awards.
All our awards are designed and manufactured in our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Gloucestershire, and all design briefs go through the same process whether the customer is ordering a one-off or multiple awards. We can produce awards for any size of event, and all are hand-built with impeccable attention to quality control as you would expect from a bespoke awards manufacturer.
The first step in the design process, after the customer’s initial enquiry, is our design meetings. These take place every day and involve the design team, production managers and account managers discussing every brief which has come in to determine the types of awards that can be designed within brief and specified budget.
We pride ourselves on our open communication structure and believe this is one of the key advantages for our customers in enabling us to really get to the heart of the designs they will love for their award events. Of course, it’s all good and well having qualified product designers who come up with amazing, creative awards, but having the production team involved in the meetings means that they know what can actually be produced. So often we get sent beautiful, creative, designs from agencies working on behalf of the customer, but although these people can design beautiful awards, they are not product designers and these designs very often cannot be manufactured – we’re thinking of a recent example that had a rather lovely, floating ball as its centrepiece!
The design team develops a series of designs for each customer, aiming to turn them around within 48hrs, while the account managers are the central point of contact for all projects, keeping lines of communication open with the customers throughout the design and manufacturing process. Our aim is to design beautiful, quality awards, which fit the customer’s brief and are on-brand and on-budget.
