Our pro bono, identity work for Birdlife Malta picked up the Gold Award at Hiiibrand 2010, from 4,136 world-wide entries. The judging panel for this contest included some of the world’s most respected practitioners of corporate identity and branding – including: Wally Olins of Saffron Brand Consultants, Joe Duffy of Duffy & Partners, Boris Ljubicic of Studio International, Min Wang (The Dean of CAFA Design School in China), Tommy Li of Tommy Li Design Workshop, Bart Crosby of Crosby Associates and last but not least Cristian Kit Paul of Brandient.
Bulldog’s blend of social science and business creativity was delivered at a symposium for members of the Education Department of the Stockholm City Council (Stockholm Stad). Our remit was to highlight the importance of understanding people in the context of culture, to initiate a dialogue about how to re-engineer practices to operate in a more competitive scenario and to catalyze innovative business creativity in the department.
Our work for Maltese electrical supplier Calleja was heralded as one of the world’s most effective rebrands in the seventh annual REBRAND 100® Global Awards. This prestigious accolade is the highest recognition for excellence in brand repositioning, and is the first and only global program of its kind. Bulldog’s rebrand of Calleja set out to provide reassurance of the brand’s enduring qualities after their Managing Director – Tony Calleja, passed away and to better position them for growth and profitability in the future.
We were completely shocked when we heard. In a field that includes some of the industry’s top firms, including Meta Design, Interbrand, FutureBrand, Siegel+Gale and Lippincott, we had to read the notification several times before we realize that we had won ‘Best of Awards’. Both Jonas and I were thrilled with the end product and so pleased the Rebrand 100 judges felt the same way.
In spite of gloomy economic forecasts at the beginning of 2010, we trusted in our ability to manage our clients’ brands through the industry downturn with resolve and acumen. This publication compiles the projects through which we have lived our values into a beautifully illustrated, 70 page brochure, complete with letterpress printed, cardboard mailing case.
It covers pretty much all the brand-related disciplines we work in, from customer insight studies to identity design, advertising to web sites, packaging to corporate communications, environments, interfaces, games etc.
We are deeply thankful to the people who continue to place their faith in Bulldog and look forward to producing next year’s edition.
Happy 2011 to you all!
A number of you have solicited my opinion about the new Malta Labour Party logo. The symbol seems to have generated quite a bit of interest judging by the number of comments on the Times of Malta web site. In this post, I will examine this topic and address the appropriate issues.
