Working with Amanda to understand the direction for her business, Refinery 43 created a new logo, brand identity and website to vastly set Mandarina apart from the competition.

Shakti Bhog Foods Limited, is a company that was born out of the deep concern to provide hygienic staple food to the people. Its main business lies in the production of Wheat and Rice. After all before gaining independence in 1947 from the British, India was a land of princely states and kingdoms without a proper national identity. Even after independence, India is culturally diverse in terms of its people, languages and traditions.

POSTAGE STAMPS with its wide usage came as a solution to be used as communication tools across the length and breadth of the nation. Issued by Post & Telegraphic Office nationally, STAMPS through their engraved imagery successfully communicated the Planning Commission’s initiatives with respect to food and agricultural policies.

Muse Creative Awards | The Play Revolution Business Logo Design

Play is one of the most effective tools for keeping human relationships fresh and exciting. The Play Revolution is an energetic team. They are trained to go into any workplace that is suffering from disconnection and staff friction. It is their responsibility to help them out of it through activities, creativity and play.

The brief requested creativity, connection and an approach that was child-like but not childish.

Muse Creative Awards | The Play Revolution Business Logo Design

The Meccano pieces represent the relationships within a workplace. While being a toy, they encourage creativity in their potential. By pairing stylised Meccano pieces “drawn on a strict grid” with a bold colour scheme we achieved a combination of balance and creativity while still having the option for a bright symbol that would be taken seriously by a crew of 50 lawyers who were being asked to play an egg and spoon race.

Deciding what awards to enter could be challenging. But, it’s important to weigh up the time and effort it would take to enter against the potential gains.

However it’s not just the winning that counts!

With resources often stretched putting yourself forward for creative awards is not always the top of the agenda. Here are five reasons why simply entering an award could be good for your business.

 

1. FREE MARKETING

Business awards can be an overlooked tool in your marketing toolbox. Just being shortlisted can improve brand awareness and promote your business to new customers. Make sure you maximise PR exposure. Update your marketing materials with the award logo including business cards, website, literature, email and sales material. Awards celebrate hard work and success and are great PR opportunities. It’s fantastic to be recognised so it’s important to make sure that people know what your business has achieved. Winning a business award can open doors to getting contracts, finding new supply channels and breaking into new markets.

 

2. BENCHMARKING

The application process for entering a business award can often force you to look at your business from a different perspective and compare yourself to your competitors. You’ll need to make sure that you stand out from the competition whether that’s through innovation, diversity, growth, customer service, investment in people and strategic thinking. This will help you think about ways you could be doing things better and identify areas for improvement. Besides, it is one of the ways your business could benefit and that could be more valuable than the prize itself.

 

3. INCREASED CREDIBILITY

A business award win, short-listing or nomination can act as a 3rd party endorsement for your business. A win can give a seal of approval to your activities. A sign of quality for potential customers, it can form as part of your sales pitch. It can also help with relationships with suppliers. Overall, it’s a great way of differentiating your company from competitors as it will send out positive signals to customers.

 

4. ATTRACT TALENT

Awards recognise the hard work and achievements of your employees so winning one can help boost staff morale and improve motivation. Employees focus on what’s great about the company they work for and can feel proud to be a part of it. This can be maximised by making sure staff feel they get the recognition they deserve by holding a staff meeting to celebrate your victory. Staff could be invited to a glitzy awards ceremony or dinner which can yield networking opportunities as well as being a great night out.

5. EMPLOYEE MOTIVATION

Business awards validate your hiring stature among new recruits. By pitching yourself as the best you can attract the talent you need to push your business forward. Increased employee morale will also help attract and retain new recruits.
