The George Orwell Prize

The three of us were selected for our design that revolved around the notion of three being one. Symbolising the removal of hierarchy, with each piece being of equal importance to the whole. Formed of concrete, the trophies were broken from a single slab, The categories stand side by side uniting the prize. 

 

"For the last five years, The Orwell Prize has worked with Goldsmiths designers to produce awards for the distinguished journalists and writers who win the prize. This year's design was outstanding - heavy, modernist, elegant, rocky, they captured something about Orwell and his values. They were presented so well and accompanied by a great film of their making - which played on a loop to the hundreds of journalists, editors, publisher, writers, academics, think-tankers and winners."Professor Jean Seaton, Director of The Orwell Prize

 

“It has become tradition for students from our department to design and make the Orwell Prize trophy. Tom, Archie and Panagiotis have worked together to create something that resonates with the rhetoric of the George Orwell prize."

Rose Sinclair, Lecturer in the Department of Design at Goldsmiths
