Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Awards 2014

The shape of the award is a reminder of how iconic vinyl is and the special culture it represents from the past and future especially with continuing rise of Record Store Day.

The Worldwide Awards champions the independent spirit, Brownswood Recordings is testament to that with the basement heaving with vinyl spanning genres and decades.

The idea is the WWA award to always be the classic LP record and cover but keep the materials changing the exciting challenge is to find new ways to create an iconic object, this year it's made from coloured steel and stained wood.

The Worldwide Awards are meant to be fun so I always make sure the award is bouncing lights of the stage, you need need abit of flash it is an award show after all.

Commissioned for a second time to design the award for Gilles Peterson's Worldwide I was drawn to create a piece that was playful and mirrored the sound frequencies of the progressive electronic and acoustic music.
