More About This Book

The German Design Award is the country’s highest distinction in the field of design. A company can only enter the competition for the Design Award if its product has already been awarded a national or international design prize. For 2011 more than 1,500 nominated entries were received in approximately equal number for the prize’s two categories. Out of these, the jury awarded 49 winners – 25 from product and 24 from communication design. This ratio is a testament that that each prize was duly earned. In addition to documenting the competition and the winners, German Design Award 2011 also contains an evaluation of the current influences on design by the German Design Council, one of the world’s leading competence centers for communication and know-how transfer in the design field.
