Museum für Kommunikation on Leipziger Straße in Mitte has just opened a new temporary exhibition: “Best Communication Design – Red Dot Winners Selection” presents the winners of the 2013 Red Dot Communication Design awards.
I loved the Lingua Digitalis Project which was developed for Gestalten Verlag (which is based in Berlin) – funny and inspiring. Mustafa Karakas, a German designer, won the “Red Dot: Junior Prize” for his impressive poster series “Frauenrechte”. And check out the Happy Mate Show Spray from South Korea!

The Red Dot Awards are one of the best known international design awards. There are three main disciplines: Product Design, Communication Design and Design Concept which are divided into numerous sub-categories. In 2013 Red Dot received some 15,500 submissions from 70 countries. Product Design is the oldest Red Dot category and was first organised in 1955, the founding year of the Red Dot awards. Communication Design joined the club in 1993 and Design Concept, which takes place in Singapore, came along in 2005.
