Snowdon Trust, World Vision, and The Donkey Sanctuary have all won 2017 DBA Effectiveness .

The DBA Design Effectiveness Awards, which took place on 1st March, reward examples of design that have had a tangible and measurable effect on business success, and were judged by business leaders including Dr Andy Palmer, CEO of Aston Martin, Deborah Meaden, Dragon’s Den investor and businesswoman, Meadenspeak and Josh Berger, President and MD of Warner Bros.

All three charities were awarded Silver in the awards. Snowdon Trust won for a project by Elmwood that rebranded The Snowdon Award Scheme to Snowdon Trust, designing new strong brand communications with a distinctive ‘equals’ sign marque that graphically communicate the multitude of ways it supports its beneficiaries. Annual donation income in 2016 was more than double that of 2011 following the changes.
