Derby-based, MX Display, the large format print and signage specialist has scooped two prestigious design industry awards for the work it did during a major refurbishment project at The Mall retail complex, in Luton.
The firm won two honours at industry bible Lux’s 2018 Designer Awards, which aim to recognise and celebrate the innovation, imagination and creative flair of agencies across the UK.
Working alongside design partner Simon Inc., MX Display was named the UK’s Best Printed Graphics Designer and also took home the award for the Most Innovative Commercial Signage Project.
It was tasked with printing and installing a new food avenue for the shopping centre, which has been open since 1972 and underwent a major redevelopment in 2006.
The Mall had no zoned food spaces, and MX Display was tasked with bringing its Feast Street concept – a bright, welcoming space for visitors to enjoy food – to life.
This included creating a super-sized branded entrance, and three giant lighting rings down the central reservation, which were custom-built to provide illumination from the top and the bottom, and on both the inside and outside surfaces.
David Lister, MX Display’s Sales Director, said: “This was a fantastic project to get involved with and we were delighted with the solution we were able to provide, which not only looks great but is also highly-innovative in the way it provides light to Feast Street at all times of day, making it a real focal point of the centre.
“We are naturally delighted to have won these awards. It’s always great to receive recognition for our work, particularly from our industry peers, as it validates our creativity and highlights what we can do to help make our clients’ big ideas a reality.”
