Great Student Experiences Rewarded at GSL Awards
The Global Student Living Awards UK & Ireland and Europe celebrates the universities, colleges and organisations that provide students with the best experiences, services, value for money and satisfaction.
These awards are truly special, because they aren’t judged by a panel, by “experts” or by a write-in application, but are judged purely on feedback from real students.
That’s why winning a Global Student Living Award is such a significant achievement.
In 2022, over 65,000 students from across the UK, Ireland and Europe voiced their opinion through the Global Student Living Index, in award categories including:
- Customer Service
- Value for Money
- Student Wellbeing
- Learning Environment
- Student Community
- Specialist Housing
- Environmental Management
Winners were presented their trophies at the Global Student Living Net-Zero Student Living Conference, held in London on 20th October.
Designing the Global Student Living Award
The trophy design for Global Student Living needed to be in perfect harmony with the organisation’s dedication to sustainability.
With net-zero student living at the heart of the agenda for GSL, their award had to reflect their drive towards decarbonisation.
It was also essential to reflect the GSL Awards’ iconic branding style, which incorporates geometric shapes to build a 3D effect, accented by a ribbon.
This combination led to the creation of a beautiful wooden trophy, with 3D geometric patterns inspired by the branding, and bringing a beautiful texture and flow to the award.
Each trophy also included a laser engraved brushed aluminium plate, based on the ribbon used in the GSL Award branding, which was personalised with the award category and winners’ names.
It’s a great example of how a logo can be reimagined with a new twist, but still stay true to the original branding style.
