The whole 10 team were chuffed to pieces to win a Cream Award 2012 last Friday. It’s nice to get a bit of recognition for this year’s blood, sweat and ink!!
Following an online award ceremony (a first for Cream Yorkshire), our shiny trophy arrived in the office on Monday and has pride of place in the Reading Room alongside our other awards. We won it for our ‘Little Book of Brand Achievement – 10 Things You Should Know About Branding’.
This small but perfectly formed piece of self promotion has been admired by all who have received one and proves that a beautifully designed printed piece can still have a big impact in this digital age.
We would like to thank the judges for their impeccable taste and DMP for a lovely print job. Please let us know if you would like one of these limited edition little gems (get in touch).
“Really great stuff is what I say! We’re pleased that people have been so receptive to the messages in the book. We really thought it’d be a great way to communicate with people without stepping into the realms of using over complicated messages to get a point across. It’s a great read and lovely to hold in your hand, everyone’s had a hand to play is this one so big thumbs up to Team 10!” – Michael Freemantle, Head of Design @ 10

Frog has been named as the fastest growing small business in Yorkshire in the recent Yorkshire Fastest 50 2011 awards in Leeds on 25 March 2011. They were also named fourth overall fastest growing company in Yorkshire at the same time!
The Yorkshire Fastest 50 2011 contains businesses from a wide range of sectors which were ranked according to turnover and profit growth.
Gareth Davies, Managing Director at Frogtrade said: “We are absolutely delighted to win this award, and being recognised as the fourth fastest growing business in Yorkshire was a big surprise for us.”
When asked how we have maintained this kind of growth during difficult times, Gareth added: “We listen to our customers and try our best to add value at every possible opportunity. People are still spending money, they are just being more careful with their buying decisions.” (Words taken from ‘Frog News’)
The Frog character was born back in late 2007, the brief to 10 was to create an iconic logo, simplifying the name from FrogTrade to Frog, to give the name/brand much more flexibility for future markets.
Frog have gone from strength to strength over the past few years and we are proud to see our little fella turn in to such a popular chap.
