Design Awards Preview - Intelligent design

LONDON - The relaunched Marketing Design Awards will pay testament to the industry's continuing vibrancy.

The shortlist for the Mark­eting Design Awards shows beyond a doubt that the design and branding industry is firing on all cylinders.


The awards, relaunched this year, will be handed out at a lunchtime event on Wednesday 4 November, at Grosvenor House on Park Lane, London.


The occasion will be a pure celebration of exceptional design work created for a marketing purpose.


There are 20 awards up for grabs, showcasing everything from packaging to product launches, as well as a prestigious overarching Gold Award.


The entries have been whittled down to a shortlist by our expert judges. The winners will be those design and brand marketing agencies and con­sultancies that have most successfully aided marketers in their missions to keep their brands in tune with consumer expectations and demand.
