Winning Idea – Sheffield Cheese Grater Souvenir

There was a call out for a Sheffield souvenir as part of the  Sheffield Design Week organised by Made North. Inspired by the iconic building in Sheffield dubbed the ‘Cheese Grater’ I developed the winning entry – a box grater featuring key landmarks and aspects of the city.

I’m delighted with the outcome of the competition. At first when I had the Cheese Grater inspired Cheese Grater souvenir idea I thought it too obvious. But Sheffield is a city built on steel and so it had to be a steel souvenir. Sheffield cutlery was used the world over, I’m hoping we can get the design into production and have this handy Sheffield souvenir in kitchens across the globe.

Patrick Murphy of Made North was the judge for the competition. Here’s the story on the Sheffield Design Week website.

This was how the design developed from drawings to the Design Board…
