Each year, the Executive Network Company CLOSE gives out the 'Excellent Speaker Award' to those speakers who managed to get a perfect score from the Swedish Executives they adressed, at one or more leadership-development sessions at Close Executive Network. The award itself is prestigious, but it was in need of a new look -and a polish, to match Close's new Brand and to bring out its full stature.
We kept the 5 stars because Close have the them as one of their most important guiding objectives; To always deliver '5 stars' at the events produced with members in attenting.
We also created a speech-bubble which highlights and delivers the name of the Award itself: Utmärkt Föreläsare. We made the new design partly "see-through", so that it would look 'a part of' which ever background it is placed on top of. For example, if a speaker pasted the award in the corner of a photo of themselves, or on their Facebook-header, we wanted it to blend with the picture or backround, while still being well noticed.
Some of the recipients of the award have been: Jan Eliasson, Annika Malmberg, Christer Ohlsson, Elizabeth Kuylenstierna, Johan Ronnestam, Stefan Einhorn, Svante Randlert, Ulf Lidman och Ulrika Åström.
