by | Sep 5, 2018 | Client Spotlight, Company News, Design

The London International Awards (LIA) have been a worldwide award that celebrates creative excellence in all forms of media. These awards have evolved over the years to truly reflect the ever-evolving and changing media industry and it has grown from honoring television, cinema, print and radio to now embracing the full landscape of 22 unique media types. These awards are ones that as a product design studio we get incredibly excited about.

How Our Product Design Studio Created an Award-Worthy Timepiece


MAKO client, Bennetti Watches nominated for an LIA

This year, one of our clients, Bennetti Watches, is nominated in the Best in Product Design category of the LIA’s. This category celebrates innovations in product design and Bennetti places itself above its competition with their watches made with fine sapphire crystal glass, personalized engraving, and an exceptional attention to detail thanks to the world-class team at our product design studio in Toronto. 

What sets Bennetti apart is their genuine leather band, butterfly bucket, and the versatile design that can be taken from a 9-5 job to a post-work workout. The watch is sophisticated, water-resistant, features 17-jewels throughout the front display and is truly a design that we’ve never seen before in our product design studio.


The judging of the LIA’s

The judging for the LIA’s will take place in Las Vegas from September 28th to October 6th and winners will be announced on November 5th 2018. The judges come from all different backgrounds and experiences for each category including top agencies from around the world.

Supporting Bennetti in their product design journey

Bennetti Watches is currently running a Kickstarter campaign which will help them raise $30,000 to move them to the next stage of manufacturing. With your pledges, you’ll help the company reach their production goals and help get an innovative and beautiful product into the marketplace sooner.

MAKO is super excited to have one of our clients of our product design studio nominated for such a prestigious award. We’re excited to see the results of the LIA’s and can’t wait to continue to see the success of Bennetti.
