We are very proud to announce that last night we picked up the much-coveted ‘Creative Industries Business of the Year’ award at this year’s Leicester Mercury Business Awards.

The Awards aim to celebrate success, recognise achievement and highlight the innovative people and companies throughout Leicestershire who are putting their region on the map. Our category was sponsored by Lumbers Jewellers and Aspirational Magazine. 

To pick up the prestigious prize we demonstrated our innovation and creativity by showcasing projects such as the D&AD Awards 2016, where we designed and delivered an on-brand concept to celebrate the award’s 40th anniversary.

We also wowed the judging panel with our work on the Adobe Summit EMEA 2016 where we highlighted our ability to flawlessly deliver a range of productions within one event, working with industry partners to deliver a creative brand experience that transcending the expectations of technical production. These examples, alongside our tremendous level of growth and investment over the past year, helped us stand out from the other nominees.

Martin Hawthorn, CEO of Hawthorn, said “I’m over the moon that we’ve been awards ‘Creative Industries Business of the Year’. This year we’re celebrating Hawthorn’s 30th anniversary and to pick up an award that recognises the very best creative talent in the region is a fantastic achievement. I started the company three decades ago in Leicestershire and believe that we are proof that you don’t have to be based in London to have a thriving company. Leicester is a great place to do business and this award is a testament to that.”
