The Team Scotland Scottish Sports Awards 2019 take place next month, with Brand Oath supporting the event for a fourth occasion by developing a new look as part of the evolving Team Scotland brand.
As part of Team Scotland’s themed year ‘Celebrating Our Past, Building Our Future’, the Awards night on Thursday 3 October will celebrate some of the greatest moments in Scottish sporting history, while looking to the young athletes determined to write further tales of glory.
To celebrate 2019 – featuring neither Olympic or Commonwealth competition – Brand Oath were tasked to design dedicated graphics to define this year and bring to life Scotland’s success stories. Based on recent triumphs, the Edinburgh agency reflected on athletes from present and bygone eras to achieve dynamic and striking visual treatment.
The look and feel of the branding and digital assets also highlight the 30th anniversary of the Team Scotland Youth Trust, with the Awards proud to be raising funds to support Scotland’s aspiring young athletes on their sporting journey.
Taking up the story behind the graphics, Bernie Shaw-Binns, Founder and Managing Director at Brand Oath, said: “I’m really happy with the way the core Team Scotland brand framework is evolving – demonstrating its strength but also its versatility, helping maximise the impact of a myriad of programmes, events and relationships over the four years since its inception.
“It is proof that you can achieve so much more with a long-term and collaborative client relationship built on mutual trust and respect.”
The 2019 Team Scotland Scottish Sports Awards in Edinburgh will see a huge celebration covering recent and past achievements across all 25 sports in which Scotland has competed at a Commonwealth Games, recognising Team Scotland stars past, present and future.
The list of past Scottish Commonwealth Games champions reads like a ‘who’s who’ of Scotland’s sporting greats, including boxer Dick McTaggart, swimmer David Wilkie, sprinter Allan Wells, distance runner Liz McColgan, shooter Alister Allan and cyclist Sir Chris Hoy.
At recent Games, the baton has been taken up by stars like gymnast Dan Purvis, cyclists Katie Archibald and Neil Fachie, swimmer Duncan Scott and athlete Eilidh Doyle – all of whom have also won Olympic or Paralympic medals. Success at the past two Commonwealth Youth Games also augers well for Scotland’s sporting future.
The impressive world-class facilities at EICC will host the special evening of sporting celebrations, drinks reception, three-course dinner with wine and entertainment, where guests can mingle with some of the biggest names in Scottish sport and business.
Award categories across performance and community sport will be decided, building up to the presentation of the Emirates Lonsdale Trophy, awarded to the 2019 Scottish Sportsperson of the Year.
