Natural Selection Design scooped not one, but TWO awards at last week’s national Restaurant Marketer & Innovator Awards 2018 for our work with Wreckfish… and we are delighted!
The two gongs we came home with are Launch Campaign of the Year, and Best Use of Video, both citing our work with the record-breaking crowdfunded restaurant, Wreckfish. We were up against some serious competition on the night, but were over the moon to hear our name called not once, but twice!
Our MD, Dan Burns, said: “To be recognised at a specialist industry event such as Restaurant Marketer & Innovator Awards is fantastic; our work with Wreckfish was truly a huge team effort, and I’m thrilled for the team to be taking home two awards that are testament to their hard work and creative thinking.
“Working with Gary and the team at Wreckfish has been a tremendous experience for me, and for the whole team at Natural Selection Design. It’s been exciting to watch it progress so successfully and we are made up to get recognition in the industry for it.”

Other successes on the night included Thai Leisure Group and Wise Tiger for the Best Use of Research/Insight/Data category, and Maxwell’s for Best Use of Social Media. The night was hosted by the jovial TV presenter, Mark Durdan-Smith, (who, we found out, is the son of Judith Charmers!).
The Restaurant Marketer & Innovator Awards were held on 18th January at London’s newest offering from the team behind Firmdale Hotels (think Soho Hotel and Charlotte Street Hotel) – nestled in the midst of Soho with an urban-village feel and incredible eclectic interiors, designed by the award-winning Kit Kemp in her modern British style.
The Schweppes-sponsored night kicked off with ten-pin bowling at Ham Yard Hotel’s Croc-Bar bowling alley and bar, and we enjoyed some great food and Schweppes gin cocktails before sitting down in the cinema theatre to learn who’d scooped what on the night. What a venue!
It was an honour to attend the inaugral awards event, set up to recognise the growing importance of marketing, innovation and strategy professions within the restaurant and food service sector. Thanks for having us!
We have so many more exciting video campaigns already in the pipeline, so watch this space!
