NBL Awards

Award Design

The ‘Nederlandse Breaking League’ (NBL) is the Dutch Championships for (young) breakers. In 2018 they came to me because they wanted something else for an award then a standard print and trophy.

In 2018 I used LP records and singles to make the awards and by popular demand used VHS tapes in 2019. Both items played (LP’s still do) a big role in breaking, so also provided a way to explain a bit of history to the new generation breakers for who Spotify and Youtube is the norm.

The NBL competition has layers, with pre-lims, a Grand Slam and a Master Event. So the trophies needed to be ‘scaled up’ with each level of the competition, as shown on the images below.
