It was a triumphant day at The Solutions Awards in London when Fresh Design & Print picked up the overall winners award.
Fresh Design Print based in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire were voted overall winner at a packed Café De Paris Ceremony in London on November 18th.
They were nominated in 2 categories for Best Solution for Books and Best Solution for Design and came runners up in both categories.
After drawing in the Best Solution for Design with exactly the same percentage, the vote was taken back into room and voted on via electronic keypads and Fresh missed winning a 2nd award of the day by just 1%.
But little did they know that there was one more award that was not voted on by the public but by The Print Solutions magazine itself and triumphed by winning it.
The Solutions Awards is an annual event that acknowledges and congratulates people in the graphic arts industry for creativity, innovation, ideas and inspiration and is organised by Print Solutions magazine, published by Earth Island Publishing.
There were hundreds of entries, from which just five were shortlisted in each category and these were then voted for online by readers of Print Solutions Magazine with three final nominees being chosen.
There were in excess of 5000 votes electronically and 250 people attended the event at the Café de Paris, and they also had a chance to vote for their favourites via interactive keypads.
These votes were added to those received online to decide on the winners.
The Solutions Awards was backed by one of the biggest multi-media campaigns in the industry and the twitter exposure during the awards reached more than 33,000 timelines, with nearly 58,000 impressions.
For Fresh it is their 2nd award after picking up a Scoot Headline Award in April for coming up with a new market in the recession for print to the education sector.
After they had picked up their award Kevin and Andy from Fresh described what winning the award meant to them.
' This is the biggest award Fresh has won and it comes after 6 years of hard work and shows that if you have a dream of being highly creative in design and print and can provide real solutions to problems, you can get recognised and rewarded. We are very proud to win this and let all our clients know that it was them who put us here and those who don't know us come and have a chat and we will show you why we are good at what we do.'
