At Design Awards, we have been designing and making custom trophies and medals for over 20 years for our clients. Having worked alongside some of Australia’s most iconic brands, organisations and sports teams we are proud to say that we are the leaders in creating bespoke, high-end awards right here in Australia. When you buy trophies and medals online from us, you are assured that the materials are all sourced within the country and are of the highest quality. Our two workshops are located in Melbourne and Sydney and this is where the magic happens. Our fully equipped premises allow us to take our clients’ visions and turn them into reality.
Our design and making team is made up of a small group of highly talented artisanal professionals that are committed to creating awards that are to the exact specifications of our clients. If you already have a design in mind, we can help you develop it further into something spectacular, and if you aren’t sure what you would like yet, then our designers are there for you every step along the way.
Having been in the industry for over two decades, we have seen our fair share of awards and we always encourage our clients to customise their trophies for best results. Here’s is why we believe it is important:
• Individuality: When giving out prizes, it’s easy to choose the generic method of mass produced trophies, but we can assure you that the recipient will be more likely to proudly display their trophy or medal if it is customised for them as an individual. With their name and the accomplishment on the award, they are bound to display the award and be proud to receive it.
• Brand recognition: When you personalise or create custom awards, it enables you to add your logo or brand and slogan to the trophy or medal. This increases the recognition of your brand and will help make it synonymous with high-quality, prestigious awards.
• Event awareness: When the award is displayed in recipients’ homes or on their desks, admirers will clearly notice the event or ceremony in which the award was given. This increases the exposure for your event and could very well help you bolster your numbers next time around.
• Increases performance: Whether you’re giving out an award as part of a corporate function for your staff or clients, or hosting some sort of sporting event – a custom trophy and medal are more likely to increase the performance of people trying to claim the award. Participants are more likely to push their performances in order to receive a high-quality, personalised trophy or medal than a simple generic one.
There is no better way to show your employees, colleagues, students or anyone else that you appreciate their efforts and achievements than to invest in top-quality trophies and medals to present to them. And if you’re one of the many people who has previously fallen into the trap of presuming that it must be inherently difficult and expensive to buy medals and trophies which are highly personalised and of superior quality, you’ll be glad to hear that nothing could be further from the truth. In reality, you can purchase bespoke medals and trophies online with ease right here at Design Awards, and the entire process is entirely straightforward and affordable.
Founded by Bruce Dodds over twenty years ago, Design Awards had grown into a thriving company with a reputation as one of Australia’s premium specialists in custom made trophies and medals. Over the years, we’ve worked with huge multinational companies, household brands, government organisations and not-for-profits, as well as small, local businesses and individuals. Along the way, we’ve remained committed to our founding principle of genuine craftmanship, and consequently we never mass-produce our products or cut corners when it comes to quality.
We’re proud to remain an Australian owned and operated company, with founder Bruce and his two sons still in charge of proceedings. We work closely with each and every client to make sure we fully understand their specific needs and requirements, and we pride ourselves on creating carefully crafted products that reflect our customers’ individual values and priorities.

Trophies and medals speak highly of what someone has achieved. Whether their achievement is a sporting event, a successful project, or to demonstrate their commitment to an issue, it speaks volumes.
