Illustrations specially commissioned for the new Warren Partners website have been praised by top creative industry experts, taking the silver award in the ‘Best use of illustration’ category at the International Summit International Awards in the United States.
The images were commissioned by design agency The Foundry, who worked with the executive search consultancy to create a new website.
The Summit International Awards, set up in 1994, recognise excellence in the global marketing communications industry. A panel of 51 judges drawn from the world’s top creative agencies scrutinise thousands of entries across six key areas to select Summit Creative Award winners.
‘Best use of illustration’ is one of 11 categories covering the skills that are key to the best marketing and advertising campaigns, including copywriting, design, photography and animation.
The 4,500 entries for the 2012 awards came from 22 countries, including Australia, Canada, Germany, Malaysia and the United States.
“Our clients and candidates say that Warren Partners offers a very different, values-led approach to executive search, and we wanted the website to reflect this, rather than being just a typical corporate site”, explained Managing Director Vicky Lawton.
“The amusing, colourful illustrations are eye-catching and they've created a real talking point among our clients and candidates. To be recognised for excellence and innovation by the world's top creative professionals is a fantastic accolade.”
Added The Foundry’s Client Services Director, Zoe Buckley: “We are absolutely thrilled that Warren Partners has been recognised for standing out from the crowd and daring to differentiate. This has given them a really strong brand identity to build on.”
