Mars award – roots

Award trophies designed and produced for the Mars R&D Chocolate Innovation annual review.

“Growing our reach whilst taking care of our roots”

Product Description


In 2010, mars rewarded excellent service from individuals and companies with a trophy, just like they had done in the previous year.

Whilst working at Kinneir Dufort. I was briefed to design awards around the theme of “Growing our reach whilst taking care of our roots”.

The winning concept shows roots behind and within the corporate mars logo whilst (artificial) grass springs from the top to represent growth.

Designed to hold a single pen/pencil in order to become a functional object that winners could proudly display on their desk.

For delivery of the finished work to the client, I sourced a specific type of pencil by Germany manufacturer Staedtler called “Mars Lumograph”, which was a lovely detail to finish the pieces off.
