Royal Anniversary Trust – the Queen’s Anniversary Prizes: awards ceremony

The Royal Anniversary Trust is an independent charity concerned with the advancement of education for public benefit. Its biennial awards, which are part of the UK honours system, are the most prestigious form of recognition for UK academic and vocational institutions.

The Trust held three events to celebrate the 11th round of the awards in March 2016, at St James’s Palace, the Guildhall and the main awards ceremony at Buckingham Palace. Soapbox designed all branding for the events, with a unique look and feel suitable for a prominent awards ceremony. Our designs and production choices for all the printed materials were high-end and classical, with typography inspired by calligraphy, and a subtle pattern that hints at the connectedness of the academic world.

Using the same branding, we also designed the report of this 11th round of awards, introducing the prize recipients, the trust and the previous recipients.
