Web Summit Pitch Trophy
Design a trophy for the winner of the startup companies pitching their brand to a panel of successful business people.
During my time at Web Summit, I was assigned the task of designing the trophy. I wanted there to be the Web Summit logo somewhere, but in a subtle way. I developed the idea of the logo being extruded upwards, forming a freestanding shape.
I wanted it to have varied materials, to represent the variety of skills that the winner of the pitch needs to have to go the distance. Wood, concrete resin, brass and gold leaf were the materials chosen, giving it a weighty but balanced size, and designed to fitt into any pair of hands.
