GLUE Studio named Best Creative / Media Start-Up at LBHF business awards
LONDON, 8 November 2018 – GLUE Studio have been named Best Creative / Media Start-up at the 2018 Hammersmith and Fulham Brilliant Business Awards.
The design studio and marketing agency made the shortlists for two categories:
Best Creative Business
Best Creative / Media Start-up
The event, which took place at the Hammersmith Town Hall on 7 November 2018, London, saw 13 prizes given out to businesses based in the borough.
In his keynote speech, Stephen Cowan, Councillor and Leader of the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, outlined his vision of the borough being the hub for tech and commerce, supported by local enterprises and world-class academic institutions such as the Imperial College.
A recognition of Design: a discipline of arts and science
GLUE Studio commented: "As a product graphic design studio, we are proud of this recognition, especially given the design heritage of the borough.
“Hammersmith and Fulham have a strong place in design, being the heart of the Arts and Crafts movement in the 19th Century. William Morris and William de Morgan based their design studios here. Rowing clubs, which began as recreational groups for river transport labourers, rode on this cultural wave. As a result, they thrived alongside those studios.
“As a design company, we apply arts and science to our works. We hope that Hammersmith and Fulham will continue to forge themselves as a Culture Capital, supported by both the creative and tech enterprises. The borough’s proximity to world-class arts and science institutions makes it the perfect ecosystem for product design to thrive.”
