Ad Gefrin wins award at SDA2024

4th July 2024

The Studio MB team have been awarded the Silver Award for Experiential Design at the Scottish Design Awards for creating Northumbria’s newest visitor experience, Ad Gefrin Anglo-Saxon Museum & Whisky Distillery.

Studio MB brought the rich history of Northumbrian kings and the Anglo-Saxon to life, but also to tell the story of Northumbria’s first whisky in 200 years.

We worked closely with the Studio MB team to create a museum & visitor experience that is informative & educational using a variety of display &  immersive techniques, from graphics, custom display cases to AV, sounds & scents.

Dr Chris Ferguson, Director of Brand and Experience said -
“Working with Studio MB to create Ad Gefrin Anglo-Saxon Museum and Whisky Distillery was an absolute joy from beginning to end.We are delighted that Studio MB scooped a silver award at the 2024 Scottish Design Awards for their brilliant work. As always innovative designers they worked closely with our team to realise a unique immersive experience that really brings to life Northumberland’s Anglo-Saxon ‘Golden Age’ and our wider showcase of the heritage, ancient hospitality and contemporary crafts, arts and produce of the region. Many congratulations to the whole Studio MB team.”

Creating an award-winning visitor experience such as Ad Gefrin is not something Studio MB deliver in isolation & we want to name check Freakworks, Pixel Stag, Click Netherfield, Leach Graphics, KDR Projects, Sysco, Mark Hewitt at Myriad Creative, Michael Grubb Studio, Finn McCallum Stone Carving & Astley Signs & thank them for their input & assistance. Finally thanks to the extraordinarily motivated client team for enabling us to ensure Ad Gefrin Anglo-Saxon Museum & Whisky Distillery offers its visitors that something a little more unique & worthy of, we hope, many more awards.
