February 3rd, 2014
The relationship between Indesign and Red Dot began in 2011 with Red Dot Asia supporting the inaugural Saturday Indesign Singapore event by hosting both the opening and closing parties at the Red Dot Design Museum, Singapore. In 2012 this collaboration was expanded with a space in the museum being made available for Saturday Indesign exhibits. Throughout this time, Indesign Publisher and CEO Raj Nandan (pictured above) has been invited to lend his experience and expertise in design to the jury for the Asian Design Award.
In a testament to the strengthening of the relationship between Red Dot and Indesign, this year Mr. Nandan has been invited to be part of the global jury for the Red Dot head office in Essen, Germany. Other jurors include Mårten Claesson of Claesson Koivisto Rune, Hideshi Hamaguchi of Ziba Design and monogoto and Dr. Luisa Bocchietto, National President of the Association for Industrial Design in Italy.

Since 1955, the Red Dot accolade has stood for belonging to the best in design and business. The international design competition, the “Red Dot Design Award”, is aimed at all those who would like to distinguish their business activities through design. The distinction is based on the principle of selection and presentation. Excellent design is selected by competent expert juries in the areas of product design, communication design, and design concepts.

However, Red Dot represents more than just a design competition: as design promoters the organisation spreads the idea of design internationally, highlighting the importance of design for business and society, and as trend experts presenting the latest developments in design. The Red Dot Institute filters the results of the Red Dot Design Award according to different criteria and on application calculates the design value of companies that have received the Red Dot. It creates job-related industry analyses and rankings, and develops studies for long-term design developments.
