While we love creating custom awards for a range of both local and national companies, individuals and organisations, it is a real honour when we are approached to design a custom award for the Queensland Government.
Presented by the Department of Environment and Science, the Queensland Government recently awarded John Hicks for his service from the years of 1979 – 2018. A dedicated environmentalist, John studied seabirds in the Great Barrier Reef – most notably the rare Red Tailed Tropic Birds – and helped protect these vulnerable species from extinction.
Wanting to incorporate his love of birds into the design, we used several printed acrylic layers to create a 3D effect of the Red Tailed Tropic Birds, backed by colourful coral shapes to pay homage to the natural, frail beauty of the Great Barrier Reef.
The timber was laser cut and etched to include the Queensland Government logo, as well as the recipient’s name and years of service, and was designed in a classic rectangle shape for easy display purposes.
We appreciate the decades of work put forth by local legend John Hicks, and hope he enjoys this award as much as we enjoyed making it! Contact us directly at [email protected] to discuss your next custom award need.
