Gold prize for Best Website of the Year, 2018 Indigo Design Awards, Tokyo

“Bringing home the first award in a prestigious international competition was an honor that inspired us to look beyond and start a new journey — made of bigger ideas, major inspirations, and outstanding works. Always raising the bar to create our own personal approach and spread it all over the globe.For a small firm like 150UP, it was amazing to be in the company of such a respected group of honorees. Winning the gold prize at 2018 Indigo Awards has proved to be an amazing opportunity to highlight our in-house talents while enlarging our network. It also brought us the chance to visit Tokyo and meet other creatives designers.”
