Ahead of the pack

Red Dot Award: Design Concept is the largest convention for new product ideas, concepts and prototypes. Winning a Red Dot is not only a quality mark of the products produced, winning a Red Dot tells the public at large that the designers and teams behind these product concepts and ideas have excellent design capabilities. 

Efficient design management

A Red Dot is a quality seal of design excellence and an indicator of success, an independent group of experts provide an unbiased evaluation of concepts and innovations. Leverage on the Red Dot label to determine which concepts would give the better return on investment.

Emerge from the shadows

It communicates to the world and potential clients a winning studio’s design and innovation leadership, enhancing mindshare and increasing brand value.
