2020 is just around the corner, and with a new year comes a whole new range of design trends which extend out into the world of trophies and awards.
Allow Trophies & Engravers, suppliers of trophies in Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town, to guide you through the predicted trends for the new year, and you’re sure to be inspired for your next awards ceremony!
#1 Environmentally Friendly
Environmental awareness has been a massive talking point over the past few years and there is an expectation on all of us to be more environmentally conscious. We are expecting to see more trophies made from recycled and upcycled materials in an effort to reduce waste. We love this earth-friendly trend in trophies!
#2 Designed by an Artist
One trend that we have noticed in the world of trophies is that of artist collaborations. Awards just become so much more valuable, as well as special, when an artist has been involved in the design process. Many of the world’s most prestigious trophies are designed by well-known artists and this trend will definitely extend to a smaller scale too.
#3 Dulux Colour of the Year
The Dulux Colour of the Year for 2020 has already been released, and it is called ‘Tranquil Dawn’. The colour is a lovely, soothing green, and is said to represent the mood of the nation at the dawn of a new decade. This unique shade is sure to be used in a variety of designs to celebrate it throughout the year, and this should undoubtedly extend to trophy and award designs.
#4 Highly Personalised
No one wants to receive an award that feels very impersonal, that is why highly personalised awards will definitely be on the rise in this age of individuality. We’ll be seeing more custom-made awards that feature the recipient’s achievements in a specially adapted manner. There is nothing quite like feeling extra special when you receive an award!
