"Good design must be defined by appropriateness to audience and goals, and by its effectiveness, not by its adherence to Swiss design or the number of awards it wins."

Smarta 100 Special Award for Innovation 2012

Smarta 100 Special Award for Innovation 2012

Brightworks' client Ecoegg has been chosen, from a shortlist of five companies, as the overall winner of the Smarta 100 Special Award for Innovation 2012. The announcement was made on 8 November during the awards ceremony at the O2 Arena in London.

According to the Smarta 100 website, this is historically one of the toughest categories for the judges to decide on as, by nature, every business in the Smarta 100 will have created a little niche for itself through terrific innovation. The shortlist consistently think outside the box, coming up with innovative ways to improve our lives and expand their business in new ways. The overall winner will have to stand head and shoulders above the others by proving it is the most disruptive in its sector, the most entrepreneurially-run company, the most promising business or the small business making the greatest improvements to its customers' lives in some way.

plastic awards

Plastic Industry Award 2012

The Plastics Industry Awards reward excellence in materials usage, design and manufacturing as well as training and environmental performance. The birthing baby was highly commended within the Industrial Product Design category, but narrowly lost out to the F-Board - a 100% recycled PVC scaffolding board.

The birthing baby is an obstetric training manikin, designed to improve the training of doctors, midwives and nurses to prevent adverse outcomes in childbirth. The head, body and limbs are made from RTV Silicone rubber, ABS and water blown polyurethane foam. It includes several realistic, key anatomical features. The head is suitable to practice forceps and suction deliveries and the arms, legs and head articulate realistically. The flexibility, hardness, density and weight distribution of the skin, limbs and joints closely replicate those of a real baby.

plastics industry award

Plastic Industry Award Winner 2005

The Plastics Industry Awards reward excellence in materials usage, design and manufacturing as well as training and environmental performance. With the judges being impressed with the innovate design of the product, the OPID offender tag won the Industrial Product Design category.

Electronic Monitoring has in recent years become a way for the criminal justice system to provide an alternative to custody in prison. It means offenders are monitored whilst carrying out community sentences, on bail pending a court hearing, or who have been released from prison and are therefore subject to special conditions.
