National award for North East design agency

Date 17 Sep 2006

A Newcastle-based design consultancy has fought off competition from England’s leading creative agencies to scoop first prize in national design and advertising awards. A total of 259 gold, silver and bronze award winners from the five regional heats of the Fresh Awards that took place in September last year were entered for the national Grand Prix awards. At the North East regional heat, SUMO’s record win of 16 awards, including the Grand Prix prize for Best Design for the second year in succession, qualified its work for the national finals.In addition to the top national prize, the Big F, the company also picked up three gold, two silver and two bronze awards. The Big F was awarded for SUMO’s work on Bound, a book produced with artist Tanya Axford for New Writing North, an organisation that supports and promotes writing in the North of England.SUMO managing director Jim Richardson said: “We were up against some brilliant work from talented people all around the UK, and this is a great tribute to the work of our skillful and experienced team. It’s a fantastic win and we are absolutely delighted with it.”
