The Red Dot Institute
The Red Dot Institute is the point of contact for researching numbers and information relating to the Red Dot Design Award. It evaluates the results of the competition in consideration of different criteria and calculates the design value of award-winning companies on request. Additionally the Red Dot Institute prepares industry-specific economic analyses and rankings, and develops studies for long-term design developments. The annual Red Dot Design Ranking honours leading organisations that continuously strive towards design excellence. In this way, design research becomes a modern form of economic research and design a strategic benefit for companies.
