Red Dot on Tour in Basel

 
Red Dot presents award-winning communication design 2013 | 2014

Red Dot on Tour continues: On 1 February 2014 the special exhibition “Ausgezeichnet. Red Dot präsentiert prämiertes Kommunikationsdesign 2013 | 2014” (“Excellent. Red Dot presents award-winning communication design 2013 | 2014”) will start in Basel.  Already for the fourth time, the winning works of the Red Dot Award: Communication Design will be exhibited in the midst of the Swiss creative scene. In three different exhibition venues throughout Basel, Red Dot will present more than 500 works from 49 countries on the subject of communication design until 21 February 2014 – all this in cooperation with designer and photographer Jean Jaques Schaffner, co-founder of the agency Schaffner & Conzelmann and Red Dot juror for many years. Further partners of the exhibition are the Schule für Gestaltung Basel (School for Design in Basel) and the Hochschule für Gestaltung und Kunst FHNW (Academy of Art and Design at the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland), where parts of the exposition will also be featured. Visitors can expect the latest communication strategies and marketing tools, trends in advertising and packaging, exhibition highlights in the dark and much more.

Auf der Lyss

In the exhibition rooms of the School for Design in Basel, the works of the Red Dot: Grand Prix and Red Dot: Best of the Best winners will be shown. Furthermore, recipients of the honorary title Red Dot: Client of the Year, in 2013 the company Audi, and the Red Dot: Agency of the Year, the agency Mutabor from Hamburg, will be on display with award-winning projects.

Maurerhalle

Under the banner of promotion of up-and-coming talent, the Maurerhalle of the School for Design in Basel and the Academy of Art and Design at the University of Applied Sciences FHNW will present the project of the winner of this year’s Red Dot: Junior Prize as well as all other works that were successful in the Red Dot: Junior Award.

Gallery Graf & Schelble

All award-winning works out of the categories Digital and New Media will be on show in the gallery Graf & Schelble. Visitors can look forward to media presentations on iMacs, hands-on computer games and cinematic works in the Red Dot Cinema.

Based on the exhibition, on 15 February 2014 the convention “Designprozesse 2014” (“Design Processes 2014”) is taking place. The focus of this one-day event is on the different design approaches in the field of communication design, which will be outlined in form of six lectures.
