Latest news: The best of the best

The best of the best

The 44 team clinches its fourth Tom Dawson Award.

The evening’s theme was #timetoshine – and that’s certainly what we did at the latest IoIC Central and North Awards, where we scooped five Class Winners and the Tom Dawson Award for best overall print publication.

The event, held at the Leicester Marriott, was the fourth time the IoIC has awarded 44 with the special honour, which goes to the publication that, in the opinion of the judges, represents the highest quality in printed work.

The magazine in question was The Globe, the print and digital employee magazine we design and project-manage for Barclaycard, working in collaboration with content agency Write the Talk (all pictured above). In total, The Globe won three separate classes at the awards too, including best magazine, best print design and best photograph.

“It’s great to be recognised for the high quality of the work we produce – especially given the level of competition at the awards,” said Corin Ashby, Partner. “I’m incredibly proud for the people that work on these exceptional projects – it’s a big team effort and this award is testament to everyone’s hard work.”

Introducing the interim of the year…

There was further success on the night too. For the first time we entered the freelancer/interim of the year category, and our very own Abby Fisher picked up the prize for her ongoing work at National Grid.

“I’m thrilled to win this award,” said Abby. “Working with National Grid and 44 on an interim basis has been a hugely enjoyable and challenging experience, and I’m very pleased that my work, and the quality of the National Grid and 44 team members around me, has been recognised in this way.”
