Quiet, subtle works win over expert jury

The results of the red dot award: communication design 2006 have been finalised. This
year, the jury consisting of nine international design experts had to judge the design quality of 3,708 entries from 31 nations. Twohundred and ten works received an award, twenty-four of them a ‘red dot: best of the best’ for outstanding and path-breaking design achievements. In the field of the honorary prizes the suspense remains because the awardwinners of the honorary award ‘red dot: grand prix’, which is awarded to the best work of each category, as well as the ‘red dot: junior prize’ worth 10,000 euros (instead of 2,000 euros in the previous years) for the best student work will be announced no earlier
than 8 December 2006 at the festive award ceremony in the Essen Philharmonic Concert Hall. From 9 December 2006 to 7 January 2007, all award-winning works will be presented to the interested public in a special exhibition at the Essen red dot design museum.

With altogether more than 5,000 entries in its disciplines ‘red dot award: product design’, ‘red dot award: communication design’, and ‘red dot award: design concept’, the red dot
design award is one of the leading and largest design competitions worldwide. Since 1955, outstanding design quality has been publicly honoured and presented in an exhibition by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen on an annual basis.

The “red dot communication design yearbook 2006/2007” will be published in time for the award presentations in December.
