Red Dot AwardsRed dot award results : The results of the red dot award: communication design 2006 have been finalised. This year, the jury consisting of nine international design experts had to judge the design quality of 3,708 entries from 31 nations. Twohundred and ten works received an award, twenty-four of them a ‘red dot: best of the best’ for outstanding and path-breaking design achievements. In the field of the honorary prizes the suspense remains because the awardwinners of the honorary award ‘red dot: grand prix’, which is awarded to the best work of each category, as well as the ‘red dot: junior prize’ worth 10,000 euros (instead of €2,000 in previous years) for the best student work will be announced no earlier than 8 December 2006.

Even though according to the jury the quality of the 3,078 entries was consistently high, the percentage of entries which finally received an award is only slightly above 5 percent. “The outstanding works of this competition are quiet but subtle; they are touching and get under one’s skin with wit and humour,” Professor Dr. Peter Zec, initiator of the red dot design award, sums up the results of the competition. Following the motto “Less is more” good communication design has to be above all informative and functional.

Emotional design
This also applies when companies communicate with their customers or investors: According to the jury an emotional appeal in business is useful even in the case of business reports. Among this year’s entries are fresh approaches with a lot of humour, in which design merges perfectly with the company’s ideology. Humanity comes first and design makes it possible to give the company a reputable and likable appearance in public.

Red dot Awards - Junior prize nominees
The following four nominees can have hopes for the prize-money of 10,000 euros, which the winner of the red dot: junior prize will receive:
• Martin Gorka from Offenbach for “Erdzeiten - Atlas der Paläogeografie”
• Christoph Nardin from Vienna for his poster “The Essence 2006”
• Wolfram Wiedner from Vienna for the website
• Diana Zima from Dortmund for her book “Königskinder - Für die perfekte Familie”
• Catrin Sonnabend from Offenbach for newspaper “Hier + Jetzt. 64 Anregungen zur Zeitverschwendung”

Award ceremony & Special exhibition
The award-winners will be honoured at the festive award ceremony in the Essen Philharmonic Concert Hall and the opening of the special exhibition in the red dot design museum on 8 December 2006. From 9 December 2006 to 7 January 2007, the exhibition will present all award-winning entries in the red dot design museum.

Red dot communication - Design yearbook
Just in time for the award ceremony the “red dot communication design yearbook 2006/2007” will be published. The yearbook has managed to become an established reference work of current design. This year, the yearbook will be for the first time published by the in-house publishing company, the red dot edition, with a new, extended concept.
