The HISTORY

For Truett Cathy, life was always about people. He believed in making personal, and positive connections with the people he worked alongside. He served people in his restaurants, and also the people he encountered in the community, especially youth. From the time he opened his first restaurant in 1946 in Hapeville, Georgia, until his death on September 8, 2014, he sought—everyday—to inspire and challenge the young people he met, and help them reach their full potential.

In 2012, the Chick-fil-A Foundation was established as the philanthropic arm of Chick-fil-A to continue Truett’s work of goodwill. Through partnerships with organizations dedicated to strengthening their local communities, development of programs for youth, and also awarding grants to organizations that align with our Mission. In addition, we seek to inspire and equip the next generation of leaders. By giving them the opportunities they deserve, we believe, like Truett, every child can build a better future — and become all they were created to be.

Star Wars Illustration | 2016 Muse Creative Awards Gold Winner

Filipe de Carvalho Designs Simple and Catchy Characters

Star Wars illustration by Filipe de Carvalho is the Gold Winner in the 2016 Muse Creative Awards. Check out the Star Wars flat design characters!

Star Wars Illustration | 2016 Muse Creative Awards Gold Winner

Company : Filipe de Carvalho

Project Title :  Star Wars Flat Design Characters

Category : Infographic / Icon / Pattern

Country : Portugal

In 2014, “May The Flat Be With You” was published, a flat design personal project depicting 12 classic Star Wars characters. In 2015, I was asked by Vanity Fair to develop some of the new characters from Disney’s next blockbuster “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. The idea was to use some of the classic characters illustrated previously, and mix them with some new ones using the same flat design visual style.

Star Wars Illustration | 2016 Muse Creative Awards Gold Winner

The idea behind these illustrations is to strip down the characters to their most basic details. Such style gives them a minimalistic look. Additionally, long shadows, strong contrasting colours and simple structuring lines helped the project maintain its clean visual style. At the same time, it illustrates the characters in a very recognizable way.

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.

Building on this historical and cultural legacy, Shakti Bhog’s story adopts the usage of Postage Stamps in this film. It tells this journey in an innovative way celebrating the spirit of ‘Philately- the study of stamps and postal cards’.

5 Reasons Why Entering Awards is Good for Business

Why Entering Awards is Good for Business

It’s not just the winning that counts!

No matter what the size of your business you can enter a creative award. There are a huge variety of awards around from local to national.You can find out about awards through your local chamber of commerce, local and business press or simply searching the internet for relevant awards.

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.
