by Nathan Swinson-Bullough

2021 in light up boxes

As another exciting year comes to an end and we look forward to our Christmas dinners and New Year’s resolutions, we have been reminiscing on what we have achieved over the past 12 months in 2021. And not to brag… but we’ve smashed it! 

From award wins and new client additions, to furthering our sustainability agenda, we’re feeling pretty proud of how much we’ve accomplished in a year where industries are still reeling from the effects of the pandemic.   


So, let’s start with the award wins. We absolutely love what we do at Imageco, so we’re forever grateful to be recognised by industry-leading awards. 

UK Graphics Awards 

At the 2021 UK Graphics Awards we won not one… not two… but THREE awards. For the categories of: 

  • Green Award 
  • Best Company Under 30 Employees 
  • Leisure and Hospitality 

British Sign Awards 2020 

Once again, we were blown away by winning TWO awards from the British Sign Awards for… 

  • The Covid Extra Mile Award 
  • The Green Award

Clients, Clients and more Clients 

We’re always thankful that businesses love to work with us on their projects, and we’ve had the chance to work with some amazing people this year. Therefore, we’d like to offer a huge thank you to those who have worked with us throughout 2021. You can see some of the projects we have been working on here. 

Sustainability in 2021 

As always, sustainability is a biggie for us, and we’ve made moves this year.  

Solar Power 

We have totally reinvented our facility to reduce our carbon output. Thanks to the installation of voltage optimisers as well as 86 solar PVs at Imageco HQ this year, we have been able to reduce our carbon output by a whopping 43,000kg.  

Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust 

We have partnered with the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust to help balance our carbon output through planting trees. The idea was the plant 1 tree per 10m2 sold of our recycled bottle eco wall canvas. By the end of the year, we will have planted 140 trees through the program, and we won’t be stopping there. You can learn more about our tree planting projects here.   

Working with HP 

HP are constantly working for a more sustainable future for the print industry. And that’s why we love utilising their technology. This year we have installed two new HP Latex 800w machines. If you’re interested in why this technology is helpings us move to a greener future, read our HP collab blog 

2021 Staff Growth 

We wouldn’t be where we are without the amazingly creative staff members, we have at Imageco, and we are proud to say that we have grown by four through 2021! A huge welcome to our three new team members: 

  • Lee Greenhough 
  • Tim Houghton 
  • Dean Sharpe 
  • Matthew Pickersgill 

And of course, a gigantic thank you to our existing team members for all you do.  

Here’s to 2022 

We can’t wait to see what is to come for us next year. As always, we are aiming high and can’t wait to keep working on the projects we love with the brands and businesses we love to work with. So, here’s to 2022.
