About the project

The Shorty Awards are known for their whale tail design at the top of the awards, so we kept the same outline of the award, but a slight curve to the body of the trophy was added. They were made out of crystal, and we sandblasted the logo, the category name, and the winner onto the back of the awards.

The 2017 Shorty Award design features the traditional whale tail design, but instead of being made from only clear crystal, this year’s awards have a pop of color. The 9th Annual Shorty Awards feature a teal crystal whale tail and a clear crystal base. Each recipient’s name was painted on with teal paint to help them stand out.
