Ted Baker team wins top award at Antalis Review
Monday, September 21, 2015
The team which took “the biggest creative risk of all the entries” walked away with the top prize at this year’s Antalis ‘The Review’ awards.
Ted Baker’s in-house design team was named Overall Winner at the paper merchant’s event, held at The Yacht on the River Thames, London, last Thursday night (17 September), for its Ted Baker report and accounts.
The winning entry, which also took the prize in the Reports – Annual/Interim category, was printed by Absolute Ink on Kraft 170gsm for the cover and Cyclus Offset 80gsm for the inside text. Judges praised the design team's risk-taking approach.
According to Antalis regional business director Stephen Paul, entry volume for this year's scheme were the highest in its 25 year history: "This is a landmark we are particularly proud of in this industry of constant change. It is probably the best year we have had in terms of entries."
Empress Litho printed three of the winning entries. Boss Print and Pureprint were responsible for two each.
Empress Litho's sales director David May said it was great to win three awards and praised his designer clients.
"If you print a well-designed job well it's going to look wonderful," he said.
