If you live locally to either of our practices in Fulham or Chiswick, or have ever walked past our buildings before, you might be familiar with at least one of our window displays. We love designing and creating displays to coincide with topical issues, seasons or celebrations, and we were thrilled to recently win an award for our efforts.
Back in January 2016 we entered the Window Display of the Year category at the prestigious Opticians Awards, which is open to both independent and chain opticians across the UK. Firstly we had to submit an application giving details of a recent display we’d created (we chose our Rugby World Cup Halloween window from last October – did you see it?)
Soon after that we heard that we’d made it to the shortlist of just five finalists in our category and were invited to the black-tie awards ceremony in Birmingham, which was also attended by some of the country’s most talented and well-respected optical professionals and teams.
We had a fabulous evening, including an excellent three-course meal and live entertainment. But the event was perfectly concluded when we were announced the winners of our category, having beaten off all our other competitors!
We’re proud to hold this title for 2016 (you’ve probably spotted our Opticians Awards Winners badge on the homepage) and are already thinking about entries for next year – we might even go for some other categories too. Watch this space…
