As a company, we began as a small artisan shop and we have strived to retain the same level of quality of workmanship that is inherent to such enterprises. Even though, over the past twenty years, we have grown as a company and gone from strength to strength, we still ensure that all of our chic products are expertly designed and crafted right here in the proud nation of Australia.

Throughout our history and our present modes of practice, we have always believed in the fact that extraordinary events need extraordinary memorabilia, so as we craft the extraordinary, you should grant us the privilege of creating your wooden plaque.

Our History

The original motivation behind our company was centred around the observation that there were lots of meaningful award ceremonies that had meaningless trophies or awards. In short, our founder, the sculptor and designer Bruce Dodds, did not feel that the quality in products like trophies, awards and plaques was up-to-standard. It was for that reason that he began a small, artisan shop that produced well-designed, bespoke, high-end commemorative pieces. The quality of his product led to our company’s continued growth and expansion into other similar markets and we are now one of the most well-established and renowned manufacturers within the industry.

The Purposes of a Wooden Plaque

There are a plethora of different reasons why you might be considering having a wooden plaque created. You may want to use it in remembrance of a loved one, you might want to use it for display around the home, or you might be looking to record a date or time of a significant event in your life. You may also want to commemorate an exceptional event, such as the opening of a new business, building or enterprise, or you might simply want to use it for labelling or decorative purposes. Whatever the need or purpose, we are here to help. All of our wooden plaques are of the highest quality and are expertly designed and produced by one of our esteemed crafters. They are stylish, elegant and tasteful. The fact that they are made from wood gives them a natural edge over other, more formal plaques and we feel that this also gives them a more personalised touch, whilst maintaining a professional and refined aesthetic.

Design Awards is a team of designers and artisans that specialise in award making across Australia. We can craft trophies and medals to your order, as well as sports trophies and engraved trophies. We want to work with you to design and create a plaque that has the lettering, font, pictures, border and timber that suits your specific wants and desires. Please do not delay, get in touch with us today and let us make a plaque that will keep your memories safe for generations.

Custom plaques designed and made in Melbourne and Sydney

Design Awards focuses on producing unique, custom awards and plaques. As such, we strictly do not mass produce any of awards. Our handcrafted awards are designed to be displayed with pride and made by Australian artisans in our Melbourne and Sydney studios.



Plaques made of wood, brass, ID plates and more

It is not just award plaques we make – we have over 20 years experience crafting everything from brass plaques for building openings to ID plates and stone plaques for entrance halls. We create products based on an extensive range of materials such wood, metal, brass, and stone. These materials provide an incredible range of textures and colours, shapes and sizes. Similarly, the engraving can be fully customised either via attached engraved plates or, in some cases, via custom engravings in the plaque material itself.
