German Design Award 2012


Books "Too Many Hands Makes Churches Withstand", "Bitch" and annual report for organization Meta were chosen by the independent jury as the nominees for 2012 German Design Award.
I am very happy for that!

Two disciplines, one competition, which differentiates not between communication and product design, but between class and world class. Participating in the 2012 German Design Award means that the entrants are playing on the top. With people who are shaping the future. The competition honors top international achievements that are already setting tomorrow’s standards today. Yet it is not just the entries that are unique, so too are the competition and its independent jury. Internationally renowned ‘experts in excellence’ from both competition disciplines. They honor impressive works, totally impartially. In this they apply a common criterion: For the very best to become standard tomorrow, you have to select something special today.

The competition is open only to entries that have been nominated for the German Design Award by the German Design Council. There is no restriction on the number of nominations. Only products from the fields of product design and communication design, which have emerged successful from a national competition, from a formal selection procedure (overseen by a panel of experts) or from an international competition, will be accepted for the competition for the German Design Award.

The 2012 German Design Award is the premium award of the German Design Council and the award of award-winners. A reward for outstanding work. Only works that are both pioneering and marketable, and indeed have already proved that they are fit for market, are short-listed. The competition aims to identify, present, and reward innovative and international design trends. In other words, design that differentiates. In this light, participating is something for the crème de la crème.
