The Dieline Awards Trophy is inspired by the humble cut lines of a simple folding box—but reimagined in impressive sculptural form by Established NYC and brought to life as a museum quality heirloom by the prestigious firm, Society Awards.
To make each The Dieline Awards trophy involves a combination of industrial machinery and hand craftsmanship. Each one is cast with technical precision using automotive quality steel dies, and then lovingly hand-finished and polished to a mirror perfection. The awards in different categories are electroplated with a combination of charcoal chrome, a rhodium-nickel alloy, and genuine 24kt gold. The awards are then screen printed and packaged in its own custom display box designed, produced by FORMA Structural Packaging, and using Neenah Packaging.
Creating an unveiling experience, showcasing the reveal, and its presentation to the winner every time the box is opened. The team at FORMA Structural Packaging created the angled box to mirror The Dieline Award. The interactive box’s lid hinges open to raise the inner platform and present the award to the winner. FORMA Structural Packaging teamed up with Design Packaging to layout the visual design, and fine tune material selection. The Neenah Environments paper was hot stamped and all-over embossed with a cross hatch pattern adding relief and texture the the essentialist design aesthetic. Design Packaging’s production team hand assembled each box with razor-sharp 90º edges, and a laser engraved foam insert to protect the award with precision.
Completing the unveiling story of the keepsake packaging, each is stamped with Andrew Gibbs’ signature and personal message to the winners. Learn more about the 2017 Box Design.
