Red Dot Edition

Red Dot is a publisher of design books with the mission to advance the integration of design in modern living. Our main publications authored in-house by the managers of Red Dot include annual yearbooks of internationally acclaimed design, timely sociological and business analyses in all matters of design, whos who repertoires, theoretical discourses, and our popular Design Diary agenda.

Red Dot Edition (formerly Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen Edition) looks back on over 20 years of experience and more than 150 publications. More than just a publisher, Red Dot comprises a full-circle powerhouse and think tank for design: It boasts over five decades of experience organising first product shows and later also design competitions, and is today considered the most prestigious design competition worldwide.

Red Dot also monitors design-oriented companies, gathers and analyses statistical data, and documents the results. The publications, emerging from this hotbed of design activity, thus constitute prime vectors for introducing the latest developments in design.

Who would be interested in design books by Red Dot? For starters, anyone who needs to stay up-to-date on design, such as designers and design-oriented retailers. As cultural artefacts, the books will also interest professionals from disciplines such as advertising or engineering, to name only a few.
