Berlin becomes the stage of the "red dot award: communication design 2011"

On 7 October 2011, the most creative minds in communication design meet in Berlin: for the first time, the “red dot award: communication design“ will be celebrated in Germany`s capital city. An international jury of renowned design experts awarded 608 red dot and 80 “red dot: best of the best” distinctions for outstanding creative works during a multi-day selection process. The most daring campaigns and beautiful designs will be honoured within the festive red dot gala.

The Konzerthaus Berlin traditionally stands for glamour and classiness. Located in the centre of Berlin, at the Gendarmenmarkt, the house is one of Germany`s most important cultural institutions and therefore the perfect frame, to put outstanding achievements and creative works into focus.

Following the red dot gala, the proud laureates and important guests from economy, media and design celebrate until the early morning at the Designers’ Night, a glittering party at the Alte Münze Berlin. Originally, coins of several German currencies, including Reichsmark, DDR-Mark, D-Mark and EURO, have been minted at today`s hippest location of the capital city. From 8 – 16 October 2011, outstanding creative works shape the ambience in Berlin`s centre: the special exhibition “Design on stage – winners red dot award: communication design 2011” features this years` prize-winners and is a must-see for everyone, who wants to keep up to date in communication design. On 7 October 2011, the preview of the exhibition takes place within the Designers’ Night.
