A New Design for Investors in People
Investors in People have launched a new design for their accreditation plaques.
People are central to the success of an organisation. It’s people that invest their time and skills into businesses, and accredited businesses recognise the importance of investing in them. Without passionate people, there is no business, and without investment, there are no passionate people. Investors in People accreditations give businesses the opportunity to showcase their commitment to the workforce.
Each accredited business receives a premium plaque for display. Gaudio’s in-house designers collaborated with the team at Investors in People to reimagine the style of these plaques.
Giving iconic custom plaques a fresh look
An Investors in People plaque is a reassuring reminder of an organisations confidence in their team. The Investors in People plaques are displayed in offices, homes, and places of work. These plaques needed to be both beautifully designed and durable, suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
With a fresh look, the Investors in People plaques have returned to a dual-layer design. Layering material is a technique not limited to awards; bespoke plaques can feature unique design details. For this design, two machined sheets of solid aluminium sit together, displaying a detailed cut-through design. The classic Investors in People laurel is highly recognisable, highlighted by contrasting surface finishes on each layer.
The plaque is replicated in different colours for each distinct level of accreditation. To achieve robust colour, the metal goes through a process called anodisation. This is a subsurface process that changes the chemical composition on the aluminium’s surface, so the colour is extremely hard-wearing. It creates bold colours without losing the detail of the brushed surface finish.
Each plaque is engraved, for personalisation that endures adverse weather and daily display. Engraving isn’t limited to standard text. The Investors in People logo, accreditation level, date, and winners’ names are permanently etched into the anodised surface.
Plaques are complete with satin-finish stand-offs, ready to be securely fitted and proudly displayed.
Bespoke fulfilment solutions
There’s nothing quite like the excitement and anticipation of an unboxing. Each plaque is packed in a bespoke presentation box embossed with the Investors in People logo.
Bespoke presentation boxes are designed specifically for this plaque and custom foam inserts create a snug and secure fit for safe shipping and storing. This premium box is a rich navy colour with a magnetic seal. The Investors in People laurel stands out in metallic purple foil on the front of the box.
The bespoke experience doesn’t end once the award is packed. Personalised fulfilment means seamless rolling delivery directly to recipients.
Clients of Investors in People plaques receive automated emails and shipping updates with confirmation of their details. For the organisation, this means live stock updates and personalisation options integrated into their existing systems.
Celebrating teams, boldly
Ultimately, these plaques celebrate people. They’re designed for display, to represent the gravity behind the hard work that goes into each and every accreditation. From wellbeing to leadership, each one embodies investment into the aspects that make a team great.
Plaques are perfect for accolades you’re proud of. For stock orders and personalised fulfilment, the Gaudio team can work with you on a bespoke solution.
