About the Red Dot Design Award:
In order to be able to professionally judge the many facets of design, the Red Dot Design Award is differentiated into the three disciplines of Red Dot Award: Product Design, Red Dot Award: Communication Design, and Red Dot Award: Design Concept. The Red Dot Award is one of the largest design competitions worldwide. In 1955, a panel of jurors convened for the first time in order to evaluate the best designs at the time. In the 1990s, Red Dot CEO Professor Dr. Peter Zec developed the name and the brand of the award. Since then, the coveted "Red Dot" award has become the internationally renowned seal for outstanding design quality. More information at www.red-dot.de.
