We have the winners of the International Design Excellence Awards online and in print and they are awesome. There are great videos as well. The Webster video (he’s from IDEO) on designing the Shimano bike platform is terrific.
Check out a slideshow of all the IDEA winners for 2008.
The design of Bloomberg screens by Antenna is really insightful as well. It’s a great video by co-founder Masamichi
My lead piece analyzes the shape of the winners group this year. European, Asian and Brazilian design consultancies, corporations and schools did exceptionally well.
And don’t miss Jessie Scanlon’s piece on Design for Democracy, which won a gold. It’s a book showing the US states how to design better ballots and voting spaces. Critical for the upcoming November Presidential election.
