The creative agency's Joy of Playing project received a bronze award, which is awarded for very good design demonstrating excellence. The award is for the brand identity and overall communication of the children's toy brand Balin. The agency developed both the brand's visual identity and the actual designs of the toys, which are then brought to life in a series of illustrations. The project is also a finalist in the product design, toys category.

Squared's second awarded project, Enable Change, achieved the prestigious A'Design Award. The agency has another finalist in the communication design category as well.

"This international recognition means a lot to us. When our projects receive such a good response, we are confident that we are on the right path. I believe that this is also a source of pride for our clients, whose brands have been honored on the world stage for communication design," commented Yana Okolijska, Creative Director of Squared.
