JPS gets his OBE

Posted on June 22, 2011 by admin

Today our illustrious chairman, Jonathan Sands, received his OBE at an Investiture at Buckingham Palace for his outstanding services to the creative industry. The honour is so great that it nearly took the focus off his 50th birthday… nearly.

We’re all really proud of Jonathan’s achievements in the design industry and at Elmwood. He’s a former Chairman of the Design Business Association, a past member of the RSA and Yorkshire Arts Councils and last year he stepped down from his position as a council member of the Design Council after a ten-year stint, where he also chaired the Design Skills Advisory Panel. Jonathan was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Science by Huddersfield University in 2002 for his contribution to the design industry, and the Leeds Media Profile Award in 2006 for promoting Leeds as a centre of excellence for design.

The designers are looking at new business card formats to fit three more initials.
