On Saturday the 15th of November the Sunshine Coast business community came together to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Sunshine Coast Business Awards. Four of us from Italic Creative were there on the night to celebrate the business as a finalist in the Creative Industries category.


The night started off great, right outside our office at the Innovation Centre was music, circus entertainment, food and drinks. It wasn’t until Italic Creative was called as the winners of the award that all our faces dropped and reality kicked in. With no speech planned, we all made our way to the stage and Luke, the Managing Director made a short, unplanned speech.


Winning the Sunshine Coast Business Award is an extremely high achievement for Italic. We moved only 18 months ago from the Fraser Coast to the Sunshine Coast and have since grown, working with over 27 local Sunshine Coast businesses. During this time, we have also employed three new staff members and have created a number of partnerships with fellow Sunshine Coast businesses. Being new to the Sunshine Coast this award has recognised the commitment and investment we have put into establishing our business in the region. The win will also help in the growth of our business on the Sunshine Coast providing us with credibility on a local level.


During the night, customer service was mentioned a number of times from fellow award winners. Our business is based highly on the success of our customers and we pride ourselves in the quality of work and solutions we provide them. We would like to say a huge thank you to all our amazing clients who have allowed us into their businesses over the years to work on their branding, websites and marketing solutions.
