iF DESIGN AWARD 2015 – a seal of quality, a market barometer and a facilitator

The different design disciplines have become very tightly interwoven, a fact that, even more so than before, will be clearly mirrored in the iF DESIGN AWARD. Starting with the current award season, award-winning work will be recognized with the iF DESIGN AWARD, which will replace the individual award labels used before. Thus, the award will both gain even more communicative power and will reinforce its role as a seal of quality for excellent design.

For the 2015 award season, you will register in the disciplines product, communication, packaging, interior architecture or professional concept. We are also looking into further relevant disciplines that may be added in future.

Since 1953, iF has been dedicated to organizing fair, independent and reputable design awards and has thus gained a top position in the international award spectrum. Representing excellent design and outstanding design achievements, the iF seal of quality is recognized the world over, with registrants ranging from automotive companies to individual design studios.
