YBG Leadership Award
September 8, 2020
This was a very fun project from start to finish. At Behrends, we think it is important to involve the client as much as possible in the design process and allow them to help choose the direction that leads to the final product. The people at the ECA were great to work with throughout this project and helped us to create an amazing YBG Young Leadership Award. The design for this award is meant to embody the feeling of Edmonton and it’s people, taking inspiration from Edmonton’s iconic skyline featuring the Enbridge Tower, and the road signs welcoming people to our great city. The metal in the awards was chosen as a symbol of Edmonton’s construction and industrialization and the finishes are meant to extenuate their natural beauty. We could not be happier with how this project turned out and hope to create more beautiful custom awards like this in the future. Award details: The award is fabricated from waterjet cut aluminum, mechanically fastened together and finished with brushing and oxidizing. The Base is powder coated steel. The name plates are brushed aluminum with digital printed text, and fastened to the base with glue and magnets.
