Time and again you have passively participated in the Red Dot Awards via the editorials and updates of the Awards Night. This year, Yanko Design and the Singapore team of Red Dot Awards: Design Concept, decided to do things differently. I had a team trail me, while I went about capturing the essence of the event and talking to the winners. It was delightful to see the sparkle in their eyes and the jubilant smiles. What struck me the most were Lucid Design’s Amit Mirchandani’s words – “Winning a Red Dot definitely gives you that edge, it makes a difference.” Hit the jump for the video and to know more.

Red Dot Awards: Design Concept and Yanko Design Party Hard – Part 1

As the jury member of the 2014 Red Dot Awards: Design Concept, Yanko Design’s Takashi Yamada was asked why he focuses on concept design so much. His answer was simple, finished products are not as innovative as concept designs. It’s all about the imagination and inspiration that goes behind creating a great product. The key words – inspiration, imagination and innovation can lead to path-breaking Product Design. As always, we were there at Singapore to cover the 2014 Awarding Ceremony.
