While it didn’t quite make the top three, this design really captured the attention of the judges, so we wanted to give it a special mention alongside our winners.
The story behind the design
“When thinking about Leeds, the first thing I think of are the people I have memories with there. After that, it’s the places these memories are made. There are so many places that are special to Leeds, like Woodhouse Moor, where students will sit in summer, or the “Wavy Bacon” statue that students walk past every day on campus. There’s also places like the 24hr Sainsbury’s in Hyde Park, that make no sense to anyone else, but is a shared landmark for all students in that area. I wanted to illustrate all these places, that are iconic to Leeds and are shared between students, and place them together on the bottle. I’ve loved my time at Leeds so far, and these places will always have many memories attached to them.”
Comments from James, Chilly’s founder
“So many landmarks that I instantly recognised! A beautiful design that thoroughly deserves a special mention.”
