German Design Award
The German Design Award is the top international prize from the German Design Council. This award honours outstanding products and projects from the field of product and communication design, as well as famous and emerging designers, recognising their distinctive pioneering roles within the German and international design landscape. The objective of the German Design Award is to discover, present and award unique design trends. Individual juries for the separate categories select and award the ten best design creations: these are the award "winners".
The German Design Council is the authority on brand and design in Germany. It recognises a mission to represent all German design events as its highest priority. The council was established in 1953 as a foundation at the initiative of the German government and since then has been supporting German businesses in consistently generating added brand value through design. In this way the German Design Council became one of the leading skill centres for communication and brand management globally in the field of design.
