1. Design Portraits
The design portraits will be the most important and most comprehensive part of the book. They will be divided into three categories, depending on the nature of the design portrait: 'Creatives' (product, communication, architecture), 'Companies' and 'Universities'. Each portrait consists of a profile column containing the most important information on yourself, your company or your university. With additional text and images, you have the opportunity to provide an insight into your work.
BEST CREATiFES will also contain editorials that discuss fundamental questions in design as well as current trends and issues. These editorials will provide food for thought, develop visions for the future and inspire debate. This is complemented by interviews with international designers and design experts.
3. Address List
The contact details of all featured designers, companies and universities are listed in a separate address section, ordered alphabetically and by country.
4. iF rankings
Excerpts from the current iF rankings will be published and include all participating designers, companies and universities. Your current ranking among the best international designers will serve as an additional advertising tool.
You can present yourself and your work on one, two, three or four (max.) color doublepage spreads. It's up to you which type of content you want to communicate, what you want to focus on and which images you want to show. There are only a few predefined requirements (e.g. profile information about yourself / your company / your university in a fixed profile column, maximum amount of text etc: see the layout examples on the following pages). These elements will ensure an overall exclusive look and will provide guidance for readers. We will take over the professional design of your double-page spread(s) without any additional cost to you. This service is included in your participation fee. You just have to deliver the text and images. Since BEST CREATiFES will be published in English, we can also offer you our translation service, if you need it.
Special Off prints of Your Portrait
In addition to being published in the book, you can also order special off prints of your design portrait pages. This enables you to use your spreads as a self-contained advertising tool for a number of purposes, for example as your individual image brochure or information leaflet.
