With over 48 product categories to enter, the Red Dot Award: Product Design is now open for designers and manufacturers across the world.
October 17th, 2018
Easily one of the world’s largest design award programs, the Red Dot Award is a symbol of good design for those that win. For over 60 years, illustrious juries have judged the best and most innovative products.
From the every day to the unusual, entrants can choose between 48 product categories, covering the broadest spectrums of design. The categories include everything from consumer electronics to aircraft, medical devices, jewellery, robotics and furniture.
Red Dot jury member and design strategist Michael Thomson says, “The first thing I notice is the huge variety of categories and the growing quality of products.” Another jury member, Raj Nandan, Indesign Media Asia Pacific’s founder and CEO, has been on the jury for the awards for several years and has seen the changing trends across the product spheres, sharing, “Good design deserves to be awarded. And in spite of the sheer volume of products that come through the program, good design always stands out.”
When considering what design is lacking or opportunities for designers to explore in further detail, a 2018 jury member Steve Leung, founder of Steve Leung Designers, explains, “I would like to see more designers who are ecosensitive in their work.” However, he also points out the potential he foresees in the realm of artificial intelligence.
This initial entry phase is the first of the three. Entries close 1 February 2019.
