Buster + Punch has designed the trophy for this year’s Q Awards, which will take place on Wednesday 18th October, at The Roundhouse in London. The trophy is made from Buster + Punch’s solid metal and features the brand’s signature knurling. It’s defining feature is a solid metal brass base, which has been darkened and scuffed by hand. The polished Q is mounted onto the base, ready for the winning names to be laser etched on the award, revealing the naked brass beneath.
The 2017 Q Award trophy includes an innovative, functional element, which allows it to be used as a candle holder. Buster + Punch is also presenting ‘Q Best Act in the World Today’ category as part of the awards, with shortlist nominees including Adele, Ed Sheeran, Depeche Mode, Queens Of The Stone Age and The 1975. Buster + Punch’s ‘Rockstar Bar’ will make an appearance on stage at the awards ceremony on the 18th October and will give a special performance as the host to the Q Awards trophies.
