The Red Dot App
The Red Dot App combines outstanding product design, award-winning communication design and ground-breaking design concepts and prototypes in one visually stunning source of information for home or on the go. This digital signpost for smartphones and tablet PCs allows those interested in design to gain access to the world of award-winning design with just one click, and navigates them safely through. High-quality image galleries sorted by category help to get a fast overview of the latest design trends and show a colourful picture of current design developments. The app presents a total of more than 2,500 design products and projects that have won the Red Dot Award, along with descriptions and further links. Six new products or projects are presented daily in the “Products of the Day”, thus familiarising app users gradually with products from a range of vastly different areas.
A special highlight of the app is the Red Dot Maps function. The Red Dot Maps integrate more than 25,000 recommendations for design museums, design fairs and events, design shops where products that have won the Red Dot can be purchased as well as showrooms for famous brands. This function allows users to find out about interesting design locations or events that are happening near them wherever they are in the world. Regardless of the user’s location, he or she can also select a specific city and look at the design locations there.
In addition, the Maps function incorporates what are referred to as the “designer routes”. These routes include insider hints from jury members for the Red Dot Award who provide their very own recommendations for their favourites cities – from attractions and design shops to hotels and restaurants as well as bars or clubs. All of these recommendations can be filtered for routes ‘By day’ or ‘By night’, depending on when the app user wants to discover the city. Also, users can save interesting locations and put together personalised routes and share them with friends.
The Red Dot App is user friendly in its design and structure, and the different functions are intuitive to use. In addition to clear menu navigation, the My Red Dot App function makes it possible to individualise content and save favourites, locations, individual routes or events. The latter can also be transferred to the user’s personal calendar.
