Creatomatic Shortlisted For Two Scottish Design Awards

Jack Ogston 31st of May 2024

When your day-to-day focus is on the functionality and performance of websites, it can be easy to overlook the skill and expertise that goes into design.

Talented graphic designers are pretty hard to come by, and in a world of Canva, AI and Fiverr, a professional, human and educated approach has never been more important when it comes to creating a unique brand and design that represents your business.

That’s why we’re absolutely over the moon to have our design team reach the finals for two awards in this year’s Scottish Design Awards.

The Scottish Design Awards recognises and celebrates profound examples of Art, Architecture and advertising that inform how we interact with the world. Organised by Urban Realm and The Drum, the annual awards are judged by an exceptionally experienced and respected panel.

Reaching the finals for these awards is a huge achievement, and we couldn’t be prouder of our design team right now. To be sitting shoulder to shoulder with some of Scotland’s best and most highly regarded agencies is an honour, and it’s incredible to have the team’s work recognised and celebrated by respected by our peers.

Creatomatic have been shortlisted as finalists in two categories:

Brand Identity – Civic

For the Langholm Explore and Discover project by Paul Gardner

Langholm Explore and Discover wanted a rebrand to harmonise its rich history with its modern identity, requiring a versatile visual system spanning digital platforms, and printed materials. The new design needed to encapsulate Langholm’s essence, employing a palette of earthy tones and vibrant accents inspired by local landscapes, with a mix of classic and contemporary typography. The perfect project for our very own muckle toon designer, Paul!

Young Designer of the Year

Laura Tickner

Since joining the team, Laura has really raised the bar with her creative and clever web design and brand creation. Her ability to take a client’s brand and weave it beautifully into every aspect of the design has produced some amazing results, and some very happy clients to boot. Being nominated for this prestigious award by the teams at the Scottish Design Awards is nothing less than she deserves and is an outstanding achievement amongst fierce competition.

You can find out more about the awards and view our entries at Scottish Design Awards.

We’re looking forward to donning our posh frocks and attending the Design Awards Gala in Glasgow on 27th June to celebrate our team’s achievements and congratulate the winners. For now, we’re proud to be able to include our Design Award Nominee status amongst our other accreditations.

And, of course, if you’d like to talk to our Scottish Design Award nominees about your design project, we’d love to hear from you!

If you’d like to take a look at some of our design and creative work for logo, brand, web and more, we’d highly recommend checking out our team’s Behance profile.
