When Linda brought in an M&S mail order bag proudly displaying the Queen's Awards emblem, it generated a lengthy office chat about other places the emblem had been spotted. From the back of buses to airline brochures to the London Underground, winners are certainly making sure the world knows they’ve been awarded the Royal seal of approval.
When it comes to advertising their Queen's Awards, our winners have been using the emblem in some really original ways so I thought I’d share some of our favourite emblem spots with you. First up are Vegware – with 901% growth over 5 years, they recently tripled their Edinburgh HQ space and the emblem made the perfect window decoration for their new office (you may also have seen it feature on their tartan cups in a previous blog).
Another gold star goes to Totalpost who, when they arrived at our Sheffield site last summer to set up their exhibition display, had the emblem cleverly on show on their delivery van.
A quick Google search brought up some other notable efforts by Neon Play and HiBreeds who, as part of the celebrations at their Swiss base, captured Rolf Schlunnegger raising the Queen's Award flag on the summit of the 13,474ft Mönch mountain in Switzerland!
These are only a few examples of how our winners have creatively and imaginatively used the Queen’s Awards emblem. Have you seen it anywhere? Has your company gone one better? Share your pictures and links with us via Twitter (@TheQueensAwards and #queensawards) or post on this blog.
Keep up the good work...
