Red Dot stands for belonging to the best in design and business. Our international design competition, the “Red Dot Design Award,” is aimed at all those who would like to distinguish their business activities through design. However, Red Dot represents more than just a design competition: as design promoters, we spread the idea of design internationally; we highlight the importance of design for business and society, and as trend experts present the latest developments in design.
