The annual Good Design Awards are Australia's most prestigious international awards for design and innovation, with a proud history dating back to 1958. The awards celebrate the best new products and services on the Australian market, excellence in architectural design, engineering, fashion, digital and communication design, and reward emerging areas of design strategy, social impact and design entrepreneurship.
The Good Design Awards jury spent several days evaluating each entry according to a strict set of design criteria, which covers 'good design', 'design innovation' and 'design impact’. Projects recognised with a Good Design Award must demonstrate excellence in all areas and convince the Jury they are worthy of recognition.
Dr Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia said, "Receiving a Good Design Award at this level is a significant achievement given the very high calibre of entries received this year.
"Australia's Good Design Award is more than a symbol of design excellence, it represents the hard work and dedication towards an innovative outcome that will ultimately improve our quality of life. These projects showcase the brilliance of design and the potential it has to improve our world.”
