Privátbankár.hu has established an award to recognise and reward the performance of portfolio managers and fund management companies in the Hungarian investment fund market. The Privátbankár.hu Klasszis Awards were first presented at an awards gala in March 2014. In 2023, on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the awards, the organisers approached our brand with a request to design a unique award based on this year’s logo and visual identity.
First phase of the design – designs from three different directions
Once they had selected some of the solutions they liked from our previous projects and agreed on the budget for the project, we started brainstorming and designing. We were inspired by the icon part of the logo, the shape of the diamond and the diagonal lines behind it of different thicknesses, the rounded corners and the colours of the logo. We created designs for three different orientations, choosing the one with the diamond shape most prominent in the logo.
The second stage is graphic design
We continued working on this design by refining the placement of the graphic elements and inscriptions. For the lettering, we worked with the font used in the logo. The smaller, rounded concrete pedestal is in anthracite and features a subtle plastic pattern to create the diamond shape. The acrylic plate is edge-painted and the names of the award winners are highlighted in the orange colour used in the logo.
Spectacular and practical acrylic plates
For the type of awards where the inscriptions are placed on acrylic plates and are the most prominent element of the object, we often use satin foil. Waterclear materials are always very eye-catching, they give off a sense of elegance, but they don’t usually look good in event photography.
It’s hard to make out the inscriptions, and if the light happens to fall on them, none of these awards are visible. In addition, they can easily leave fingerprints on them, which may not be visible on the spot, but unfortunately are quite noticeable in the photos afterwards. The satin foil retains the transparency and the elegant effect, the refraction highlights the inscriptions nicely and even in amateur photos the awards are clearly visible.
Elegant cardboard box with labels – we’ve thought of everything
The prizes are individually wrapped in a burgundy cardboard box and tissue paper to ensure they arrive safely at the event and that the winners can take their prizes home with them. The prizes are labelled on the box lids, making it easier for the organisers of the prize-giving event.
In total, we produced 23 prizes, which were presented at an impressive event on 19 April. We were delighted to produce a video summary of the event to show how the awards we created were received by the public.
Feedback from our customers is always important to us, so we thank them for their satisfaction with our work. Privátbankár.hu worked with us for the first time, and they highlighted the fact that AB Concrete Design was fast and precise, while it was also important for them to work with a Hungarian designer.
What occasion can I order a designer trophy for?
It could be professional or sporting competitions, corporate celebrations, a souvenir of the completion of a successful project, a gift from staff to recognize a distinguished anniversary or outstanding achievement, or a leadership gift.
We dream trophies and souvenirs together with our customers. We find the solution for every idea, and our creativity provides added design value. Thanks to our experience in material associations, in addition to high-quality professional concrete, we also use a number of additional materials.
