The AZ Awards Trophy

Each year, an ingenious one-of-a-kind trophy is created by a prominent designer or manufacturer to honour the top AZ Awards winners selected by our jury.

The basic premise remains the same each time: use the A and Z of the logo as a starting point. But consistency stops there. The trophies are produced in limited editions, exclusively for AZ Awards winners.

A look at the AZ Awards trophies of the program’s first decade

2015 Trophy

DESIGNED BY

Karim Rashid

Rashid describes the trophy as a “brushstroke that changes in thickness and section.” The form was first sketched out freehand to determine how it could look as an abstract shape and still read as a compilation of the two letters.
