We recently partnered with Make Your Words Work™ to bring you the In-House Design Awards 2016. Born 4 years ago, the awards are the only ones in the UK that celebrate the hard-work of in-house design teams, earning them the recognition they really deserve. We saw some amazing work and are pleased to share the winning entries with you here.

“People don’t usually acknowledge the successes of projects and it’s really important for teams to take a step back, because you’re so fast paced that sometimes you forget to recognise what you’ve actually achieved, and this is a perfect opportunity to do that” Corinne Caddy, Head of Art & Direction at Notonthehighstreet
Best Internal Rebrand
NSPCC - Childline Rebrand
Savills - Rebrand
Ideagen PLC - Rebrand
“Traditionally a lot of people may look down on in-house teams, and it’s events like this that make you realise the amazing work that a lot of teams are doing. The standard of work in the category we were in was amazing, so we are thrilled to have won” Danny Wright, Creative Director at the NSPCC

“These awards can be a real boost for your team. Sometimes you can lose sight of what you do every day, but you can be producing some incredible work and when you put it all together and submit a portfolio of work to awards such as these, it can be a real pat on the back for yourselves” Nick Reeve, Group Head of Brand Creative at Clarks

“You might think as an in-house agency you’re not able to compete with the big players but you definitely can, we proved that tonight. Don’t ever not back yourself, as an in-house agency you’re more powerful than you realise” Alexei Taylor-Maughan, Video Producer at Thomson Reuters
