We are delighted to be partnering with The Transform Awards Europe which has honoured brand development and rebranding projects for the past eight years. From big global agencies to small local work, the awards recognise excellence and reward innovation in branding across Europe. The winners will be revealed at the ceremony on 28th March in London.
The awards recognise best practice in corporate, product and global brand development work, with categories that focus on strategy, execution, content and evaluation. More than that, it is a platform for organisations to tell their stories and to discuss reputational change.
Companies and agencies entering the Transform Awards have their work benchmarked against their peers and stand out amongst their competitors, rewarding excellence across the whole brand development process. The awards recognise the creativity and strategic thought exercised and provide the opportunity to celebrate with clients and colleagues at the most prestigious awards event for brand communications.
There are already examples of companies only selecting Transform awards winners to pitch for their brand development projects.
The Transform Awards will launch a media campaign to promote the winning work. If you’d like to read up on previous winners, take a look at the past winners books here.
