A Women’s Thing Receives Red Dot Award for Communication Design

NEW YORK, Aug. 17, 2017. The jury for the Red Dot Award: Communication Design 2017 has made its decision. In a process spanning several days, the 24 experts assessed communication and creative works from agencies, designers and companies from 50 participating countries. On the 25th anniversary of this prestigious award, the jurors awarded the Money issue of A Women’s Thing with a Red Dot: Communication Design Award, recognizing the high design quality and creative achievement of the magazine.

“I am delighted that agencies, designers and companies from all over the world have once again used the Red Dot Award.”

Published four times in New York City, A Women’s Thing is a lifestyle publication and community for ambitious women. It shares the stories of women who are changing the world in the areas of business, society, culture, and tech, in order to entertain, elevate, and inspire. It frames these stories within varied design treatments that honor the diversity of thought and experience contained within. A Women’s Thing is unique in the women’s media landscape in its use of fine artwork from artists of global renown interwoven with interviews, long-form journalism, essays, fiction, poetry, reviews, and more.

Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of the Red Dot Award: “I am delighted that agencies, designers and companies from all over the world have once again used the Red Dot Award: Communication Design as an evaluation platform. It is important to subject one’s own achievements to scrutiny again and again in order to constantly improve and maximise the potential for success. I congratulate the Red Dot winners on the high design quality of their work. The award testifies to the fact that they are pursuing the right design strategy”.

The award ceremony for the Red Dot Award: Communication Design 2017 will take place on October 27. During the Red Dot Gala in the Konzerthaus Berlin in Germany, the Red Dot: Best of the Best and Red Dot: Grand Prix winners will receive their trophies. At the subsequent Designers’ Night in the E-Werk Berlin, the Red Dot laureates will be given their certificates, and will show the Money issue at the winners’ exhibition “Design on Stage.”

The award-winning project from A Women’s Thing will also be presented in the International Yearbook Communication Design 2017/2018. It will be published on November 14, 2017 and documents the state of the art in global communication design.

About the Red Dot Design Award:
In order to appraise the diversity in the field of design in a professional manner, the Red Dot Design Award breaks down into the three disciplines of Red Dot Award: Product Design, Red Dot Award: Communication Design and Red Dot Award: Design Concept. The Red Dot Award is organised by Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen and is one of the world’s largest design competitions. In 1955, a jury convened for the first time to assess the best designs of the day. In the 1990s, Red Dot CEO Professor Dr. Peter Zec developed the name and brand of the award. Ever since, the sought-after Red Dot award has been the revered international seal of outstanding design quality. More information is available at red-dot.org.
