red dot award: design concept 2012 - Panel of jury unveiled!

The much anticipated identities of the panel of jury for the “red dot award: design concept 2012” are finally revealed!

With extensive expertise in industrial design, design publications and design consultancies, all members of the jury are well respected authoritative figures in their respective fields. Hailing from Germany, South Korea, Taiwan, Denmark, China, Singapore, USA, Mexico, Australia, Japan, United Kingdom, Sweden, Austria and Finland, the jury panel will be judging and challenging each concept with their own unique perspective, ensuring that the best and most outstanding concepts receive the due commendation - with the prized label of the red dot.

Renowned designer Gerald Kiska shares with us what he is anticipating at the contest of the world’s brightest design ideas: “the possibility to show ‘alternatives’ of current designs to the wider audience and point out what is and what will be possible, the latest trends in product design and how other designers interpret them”.

Gordon Bruce emphasises the importance of design concepts in the world of design: “The red dot award: design concept allows for a vision that is a bit freer and open because it focuses mainly on the creativity issue - the first half of this equation in the same way that Leonardo da Vinci concentrated on his ideas as they evolved from experience, reasoning, and logic - that were all verified by testing - but not constrained by manufacturing and business issues”.

The competition welcomes all designers, companies, design studios and institutions to prove their design capability on the world’s largest platform for design concepts and prototypes to compete for the prestigious red dot label. Standard submission for “red dot award: design concept 2012” is still ongoing until 27 April 2012.
