Big news- Butterfly received the top award for a studio with 20+ staff at last night's Melbourne Design Awards!

This award means that Butterfly was judged the best agency across all the entries! It’s a great recognition of the team effort and commitment to design creativity and technical excellence that Butterfly strive for.

We are especially thankful for the hard work of our wonderful clients who went on the creative journey with us, and hope they are as pleased and excited as we are to be recognised.

The award for Guild Insurance’s SAFETY tool app in the Digital Experience – Games category comes on top of the win from the Sydney Design Awards, for the cutting-edge Virtual Refractor project for the Brien Holden Vision Institute at the University of NSW.

We hope to announce more wins soon, with finalist entries in the Spark awards and more.
