Staff Awards for Excellence

Each year, the Royal College of Nursing recognises its best employees and teams by hosting the Staff Awards for Excellence. The awards are split across seven categories and showcase the most outstanding staff. Tradition dictated that stars would have to be the visual motif, but the style needed an overhaul and all the material had to look much more elegant than in previous years.

Embossed details subtly highlight the star arrangement, which was inspired by constellations to suggest the idea that together, they are greater than the sum of their parts. Seven gold or otherwise highlighted stars represents the winners. I decided to give this identity a sophisticated, minimalistic look and complement it with colourful accents. Each category of the awards was assigned a colour from the palette.
