red dot scores in Berlin again: with an awards ceremony, a party and a special exhibition!

For more than half a century, red dot has traditionally celebrated its legendary award ceremonies in Essen, Germany. In 2011, the major international design competition treaded new ground and celebrated the highlight of the “red dot award: communication design 2011” in Germany’s capital city for the first time: a successful premiere in a glamourous ambience. In 2012 again, the Konzerthaus Berlin will become a creative stage when the people behind the best designs of the year will be honoured on 24 October.

In the elegant ambience of the Konzerthaus Berlin, the proud laureates will be honoured and receive their deserved trophies in the course of the red dot gala – traditionally hosted by Prof. Dr. Peter Zec, initiator and CEO of red dot.

Subsequently to the festive awards ceremony, the laureates will party together with representatives from economy, the media, design and politics at the Alte Münze Berlin. The former mint, which oversaw minting from the era of the Reichsmark and the GDR Mark to that of the Deutschmark and the Euro, provides a unique backdrop for the event, making it one of Berlin’s hottest locations – the perfect place to party until the wee hours while enjoying colourful cocktails and an exclusive buffet.

In the course of the Designers’ Night, the special exhibition “Design on stage – winners red dot award: communication design 2012“ will be opened. From 25 till 28 October, it will present the prize-winning creative achievements of this year’s competition: an absolute must for everyone who wants to be updated and exchange ideas on the latest trends in communication design. Traditionally, the “red dot: agency of the year” features its creative works within an exclusive area of the special exhibition.
