Investors in People Awards 2020

The Investors in People Awards were treated to a redesign this year, and today we’re going to take a closer look at the changes to these iconic trophies.

Gaudio have supported the Investors in People awards for many years, but this year our team faced a new challenge. With the event’s industry forced to adapt, the IIP Awards moved online for the first time ever.

Designed in-house, manufactured in-house and assembled by hand; from start to finish, these awards are handled with care, and our excellent team ensure intuitive design, client input and cutting-edge manufacture come together in a winning combination.

Celebrating Investors in People accredited individuals and the strides they’ve taken in the last year to make work better, the accolades included Outstanding Use of Technology, Employer of the Year, and the Social Responsibility Award. Amongst a total of 39 categories, there was plenty to celebrate with Investors in People this year.

The body of this trophy is aluminium. Aluminium columns make for extremely versatile components and are often a popular choice. They’re available in a selection of finishes, with plenty of room for text, graphics and additional detail.

For the Investors in People event, our designers presented a brushed finish. Offering a subtle texture with a professional matte surface, the brushed finish provides a silver canvas for hard-wearing print or engraving.

Pink acrylic offers a tie-in to the Investors in People brand, with bold, tactile detail on the front, as well as caps for a tidy finish.

The personalised detail is printed in white for remarkable contrast against the pink, and includes category details and the name of the winning organisation or individual. Individual personalisation is free with Gaudio, so every award isn’t only bespoke, but made to be cherished by recipients forever.

Finally, the Investors in People logo is engraved onto the brushed surface, for a clear, sharp and stand-out reminder of what employers and individuals across the globe have been working towards this year.

Individual delivery and personalised gift boxes are just some examples of how Gaudio is working to support the events industry and virtual events. We also offer stock holding, additional material packing, and flexible personalisation deadlines.

These awards are unmistakably Investors in People, and each piece acts as a summary of a year of hard work. Investing in people and wellbeing in the workplace has taken precedent for many business, large and small this year, and these awards embody not only the brand, but the values shared by every nominee, finalist and winner.

The Investors in People Awards are an excellent example of event branding utilised for an award design. Style and colour, with a practical and aesthetic finish.
