Best by design

scarlettabbott’s design boy wonder Craig Bentley was named Best Designer – Online at the 2010 Communicators of the Year Awards.

We’re delighted that Craig’s designs for Crown Space – a monthly e-mag for our legal client Pinsent Masons – are recognised as being among the best in the industry.

Communicators of the Year is a new awards programme, from the Institute of Internal Communication, which recognises the people behind the achievements, rather than the achievements themselves.

Craig, 25, is our lead designer and he’s been with us for five years now.

The awards are judged by industry experts, and the feedback form says it all: “Craig has created a dynamic publication that deserves the highest praise. He has managed to merge the dynamics of publication and web to create a cost-effective communication solution. The publication shows a passion for combining communication with fun. It’s clever and simple.”

We’re also chuffed to bits for our client Aviva, too. The Aviva UK Life Internal Communications Team is celebrating an Award of Excellence for the Best in-house team – corporate. Well done!

Rachel Penfound, Head of Internal Communications at Pinsent Masons, says: “Crown Space e-magazine works really well for us and is a worthy winner. So I’m thrilled for scarlettabbott, who thoroughly deserve this recognition for their creativity and originality in employee communications.”

Next up were three Silver Awards for:

Best Magazine – Working with Northern Rail on Retail Therapy employee magazine.

We were also finalists in the Best Internal Communication category for East Coast’s Safer Together campaign.

Rachel Thornton, scarlettabbott’s Communication Director, says: “This is a fantastic result for us, and for our clients. These wins cement our reputation for producing some of the best work in the industry.”

Congratulations to all of our clients and thank you for your continued support.
