City & Guilds Lion Awards 2017

City & Guilds provides world leading services for educational and commercial training, helping individuals develop their skills and unlock their potential to progress to their chosen career.

The Lion Awards – City & Guilds most prestigious awards, and often referred to as “Oscars of skills education”, serve to inspire those in further education, but also recognise training providers that have “gone the extra mile” to help their students achieve.

On June 15th, the Lion Awards ceremony took place at London’s delightful Kensington Roof Gardens, hosted by City & Guilds own Kirstie Donnelly who was joined by presenter Louise Minchin (BBC breakfast and Celebrity MasterChef).

This year, Berry Place not only supplied the trophies for the sixth consecutive year, in the familiar but substantial guise of digitally printed and engraved acrylic, but was also called upon to recreate the City & Guilds Lion motif as a podium sculpture for the ceremony.

Also constructed from digitally printed acrylic to complement the trophies, the 1.4m tall Lion was assembled from layers of sheet acrylic to give it greater dimension, and to provide discreet support from a hidden aluminium armature.

“I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you. The lion sculpture was absolutely amazing!

The clients at City & Guilds were delighted with it, so much so, they’re all now fighting over whose office it will go in!

Anyway, it was a massive hit and I know you went through several designs to get it looking that beautiful and being actually portable, so thank you”.
