Fantastic awards from Red Dot and Starpack


After the success at this year’s FAB Awards, we’re delighted to have won a flurry of new awards over the past couple of weeks. We won three Red Dot Communication Design Awards for our outstanding work on Tanqueray® No. Ten, Smirnoff White, and Walker’s Tiger Nuts – its second award win after last year’s Platinum Pentaward. The Red Dot Awards has been running since 1955, awarding agencies for excellent international product and communications design. We’re looking forward to picking these up and celebrating with a drink (or three) at the Red Dot Awards ceremony on 24 October.




Smirnoff White is an exclusive new variant of Smirnoff, specifically designed for the Global retail travel market. Our design was inspired by the brand’s glamorous past, and the story of the founders’ son, Vladimir Smirnoff, a supplier of vodka to Tsar Nicholas II.
In addition to the Red Dot award, our Smirnoff White design also picked up a Gold Starpack Award, as well as a nomination for Best in Show, which will be announced at the awards ceremony on 30 September. The Starpack Awards are the UK’s premier annual awards for recognising innovation in packaging design and technology. The judges’ comments about the Smirnoff White design were simply: “Gorgeous, all design elements work together.”




Tanqueray No. Ten picked up its fifth award this year, a silver Starpack Award. Now in its 56th year, The Starpack Industry Awards scheme is the UK’s premier annual awards scheme recognising innovation in packaging design and technology.  Our new Tanqueray No.Ten bottle is designed to let the citrus shine, and tell the story of Tanqueray’s gin heritage channeling the iconic influence of Art Deco.  The judges’ comments on our design were: “Shouts 1920’s cocktail. Lovely!”
