Red Dot stands 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.
The Product Design competition has existed since 1954. Its award, the Red Dot, is an internationally recognised quality label for excellent design.
The iF design awards are independent and recognised worldwide. The iF label has been awarded as a quality seal for excellent design since 1953. The coveted award is presented in three categories: ‘Product’, ‘Communications’ and ‘Packaging’.
Creative companies – ranging from small design companies to major corporations – compete in the iF design awards by having their original, innovative products assessed in 16 categories by an international jury of experts.
