Sam Smith at the Q Awards 2014

Buster + Punch were honoured to be asked to design the 2014 Q Award to celebrate their 25th anniversary. This marked the first time the award had ever been redesigned.

The award was crafted from solid milled Steel cut with whisky and featured the same detailed knurled pattern as the 68′ Gibson volume knobs. The design paid homage to our musical heroes and rock heritage both past and present.

Buster + Punch also presented the award for ‘best act in the world today’ won by the unstoppable Kasabian. Other winners on the night included the sublime talents of Sam Smith, Elbow, Johnny Marr, Ed Sheeran, The Charlatans and Jamie XX.
