Industrial design awards
Receiving product design awards is an honor, but having a relationship with a returning client is priceless.
Over the course of 18 years we have received numerous product design awards, IF and Reddot being the most recognisable. Receiving an award for your team's work is much more than an ego pleaser. It’s a proof of skill, experience and taste as much as it is peer recognition in an industry filled to the brim with skilled and experienced creatives with great taste.
Notable design awards
The "iF Design Award" is an internationally recognized design award presented annually by iF International Forum Design GmbH, a leading design organization based in Germany. The award recognizes outstanding achievements in design across a wide range of categories, including product design, communication design, packaging design, and more.
The “Red Dot Award” is another internationally recognized design award presented annually by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Germany. The award recognizes outstanding achievements in product design, communication design, and design concepts.
The criteria used to determine the winners of the iF Design Award and Red Dot Award are quite similar and revolve around the following aspects of product design:
- Design quality: The design must demonstrate a high level of quality, innovation, and creativity.
- Functionality: The design must be functional and meet the needs of its users.
- Aesthetics: The design must be visually appealing and well-executed.
- User experience: The design must provide a positive user experience, taking into account usability, ergonomics, and other factors that affect the user's interaction with the product.
- Ecological compatibility: The design must be environmentally friendly and sustainable, using materials and processes that minimize the impact on the environment.
- Degree of innovation: The design must demonstrate innovation and push the boundaries of traditional design practices.
- Brand fit: The design must align with the brand's values, image, and strategic goals.
Winning any award is a significant achievement for any designer or design team, as it represents recognition from a prestigious organization and highlights exceptional design work. Especially when an award is widely recognized in the industrial design industry and can help elevate our designer’s profiles and reputation.
