London Design Medals

London Design Medals pay annual tribute to designers who are making, or have made, a significant difference to our lives through their innovation, originality and imagination. There are now four medals awarded to designers: the London Design Medal, Emerging Talent, Design Innovation, and Lifetime Achievement.

Medal Winners
Designed by Hannah Martin

London Design Festival commissioned London-based jewellery designer Hannah Martin to create a unique award for the London Design Medals. Hannah approached the design and fabrication of the Medals as she would a piece of jewellery, paying special attention to the narrative behind the design of the medal. “In the initial discussions with London Design Festival and Pentagram we talked a lot about London, what signified London, and how this could be represented. The idea of a bird in flight felt like it struck the right note with a sense of freedom of thought and a feeling of being able to fly to great heights.”
