We are delighted to announce that we are now an award-winning design studio after taking the top spot in the Best Creative, Digital and Media Business category, at the recent E3 Business Awards held at the Macron Stadium in Bolton.

The E3 Business Awards were launched in 2013 to recognise and reward business excellence in the North West, particularly on the part of organisations that have shown a real investment in Enterprise, Education and Employment (E3).

We found out that we made the final four back in May this year and are now over the moon to announce our success as winners of our category.

A creative studio in the Northwest, we design for print and web for a range of clients from local SME’s to national and international clients such as Channel 4, ITV, Manchester Airports Group (MAG) and EasyBox Italy.

John Porter, Director at Single Malt Design said: 

“Operating as a boutique agency, we are able to work very closely with our clients so that we can truly understand the organisation and it’s needs, rather than operating as a totally external creative company.

Our clients look at us as an extension of their team and trust us with work that is key to their organisational needs. It’s often the case that our work starts with one contact within a business and then extends across the entire organisation”.

He went on to add:

“We are delighted to pick up this award as recognition of our hard work in such a competitive industry. It really is down to our excellent team and we are so proud of them”.

The 2017 E3 Business Awards evening took place on Thursday 13th July where the winners were announced in front of an audience of over 500 business delegates from across the North West. There were seventeen award categories in all.

Speaking on behalf of 1 Events Media, Managing Director Mubarak Chati thanked the judges and paid tribute to the “invaluable contribution that businesses, charities and entrepreneurs make to our region’s communities.” He said: “Not only do they help to drive economic growth, they deliver important social benefits too. They create jobs, they provide training and, they support local supply chains.

The winning companies and individuals came from organisations across the North West, from Cumbria to Cheshire, Merseyside to Manchester.
