Jewellery Quarter-based IE Design Consultancy has been nominated three times across two categories for prestigious international awards.

IE is bidding for the European Transform Awards for its branding work for the Universities of Birmingham and Warwick.

The Transform awards are a global recognition of rebranding, repositioning and brand celebration, recognising branding projects across Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. Past winners including companies such as Cancer Research UK, Lotus and HSBC.

The shortlisted campaigns were IE’s rebrands of the respective Career Networks for the Universities of Warwick and Birmingham.

Both projects were shortlisted in the highly competitive Best Visual Identity category with the company’s work with Birmingham being recognised again in Best use of Visual Property.

Speaking about the nominations Ollie Leggett, IE’s managing director, said: “To have received multiple entries in different categories in this prestigious international award is a tremendous accolade for the entire team – and one that we gladly share with our fantastic clients. 2014 is IE’s 20th anniversary and I can think of no better birthday present that this very public recognition of the outstanding quality of our brand, marketing and digital work.”

The Transform awards will be held on April 1 in central London. IE is shortlisted alongside companies such as Tesco, ITV, Hilton Hotels, English National Ballet and Lloyds Bank.
