Design Awards


We have been very busy over the past month and a half, hence why there has been little in the way of blogging going on in ADOtowers.

Last Thursday (23rd October) saw us pay a visit down to London to attend the Oakley Design Brief wrap party and awards ceremony. As we have mentioned in the blog (many) before our work we entered had reached the final 14. Unfortunately our moment of glory wasn’t to be with the honours going to “Who Is This Kid?”, a london based designer. Well done to him, his design was really original and in hindsight, the self branding he incorporated hit the nail on the head as far as the brief was concerned. You can see his final, winning design here.

The party was a really stonking night out, free bar and great DJ’s. We had a real laugh, met some new faces and generally had a good time all round. Thanks to Oakley and Daydream Network for putting on such a high quality show! One of the highlights of the night was attempting to get Alex home via taxi across North London as once again he had enjoyed himself too much (there was a free bar)…

Whilst we were in “The Big Smoke” we came across a postcard featuring a ficticiously branded porridge box that was designed by ADOmedia.
It is from a range of advertising that Specsavers had commisioned that was specifically aimed at students. We were appointed to create the prop by Max Oppenheim, a prominent London based photographer who was commissioned for this range of adverts. Have a peak at his website for some of his great work.
