about kingsmen / kingsmen q awards / awards & affiliations

Excellence in design lies at the heart of Kingsmen.

Our holistic approach to design is driven by our culture, which involves creative thinking in everything that we do. Great design fosters collaborations, communicates strategies, and most importantly, inspires our people to reach greater heights.

In 2000, the Kingsmen Design Competition was initiated to provide a consistent mechanism for reviewing design quality and innovation, and was well-supported by designers within the Group. The award is a catalyst for all staff to strive for excellence in design and service, while strengthening our position as a leading communication design and production group. Inaugurated in 2002, the Kingsmen Ambassador Award serves as a platform to recognise exemplary performance from passionate staff who go above and beyond their duty with their exceptional contributions to the Group.

Representing Quality Design, Quality Production and Quality Service, the Kingsmen Q Awards was later introduced in 2012 to create an umbrella award that encompasses the Group’s accolades – Kingsmen Builders Award, Kingsmen Design Awards (previously named Kingsmen Design Competition) and Kingsmen Ambassador Award. Together, the three accolades serves to motivate our people to innovate, redesign, rethink and showcase the best of the Group’s design capabilities, construction works and exemplary service. Every year, a panel of external judges from different industries is invited to evaluate and offer constructive feedback on the Group’s best works.

Encapsulating the Group’s operating ethos – “design-led, quality and service driven”, the Kingsmen Q Awards ultimately serve as a yardstick for the Group to benchmark against the standards of leading companies around the globe.
