To celebrate their nationwide achievement, William Blair’s team wanted to create a deal toy for their business partner from Austin, Texas. They envisioned a contemporary and unique piece that would reinvent traditional financial tombstones.

Eager to show how we modernize recognition, we first used our waterjet to cut a piece of metal to reflect the Austin skyline. We then personalized a piece of high-quality crystal with the details of the deal. We affixed the crystal plate in between the metal piece to present a meaningful and one-of-a-kind award to the client.
