Gaudio was appointed to produce the Creative & Cultural Skills Awards for the second year in a row. Creative & Cultural Skills and the National Skills Academy for Creative & Cultural aim to give young people the opportunity to work and learn in creative industries, while ensuring employers benefit from a skilled generation of talent and help creative industries continue on a course of economic growth.
Creative & Cultural Skills offers a range of services and resources for anyone who wants to work in a creative career, aiming to stem the tide of youth unemployment and create 6,500 jobs in the creative industries over 1,000 days. The Creative & Cultural Skills Awards are judged by leading employers in the creative industries, and recognise outstanding achievement and contribution, with award categories including, ‘Apprentice of the Year, ‘Intern of the Year’, ‘Training Provider’ and ‘Creative Choices’.
The Creative & Cultural Skills Awards are an Oscar-style representation of their ‘diddyman’ image, with the two-dimensional figure cut out of 5mm aluminium, faced with 5mm orange acrylic and set on a brushed and polished aluminium base. The event logo and award category are printed in white on the orange acrylic, while the winners’ details are engraved on the base. These cute little diddyman awards are a great example of how Gaudio brings customers’ design ideas to life.
