And the winner is ...
Deutsche Bank Art's "All The Best" Catalog Awarded the Distinguished "red dot" Design Prize

Winner of the red dot award:
Deutsche Bank Art’s exhibition catalogue der Deutsche Bank Art

The results of the red dot award: communication design 2007 are in. 3.880 submissions from 34 nations were evaluated for outstanding design quality by this year's jury consisting of 12 international design experts. 336 works were given prizes, but only 27 received the red dot: best of the best award for groundbreaking design achievements. Among the winners was Deutsche Bank Art, whose All The Best catalog won the red dot.

The publication, designed by the Frankfurt agency Very (Alexandra Papadopoulou, Nathalie Landenberger, Harald Pridgar), was brought out on the occasion of the All the Best jubilee show, with which the Deutsche Bank Collection 2006 celebrated its 25th anniversary in the Singapore Art Museum. After the exhibition was shown at the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin and Tokyo's Hara Museum, star architect and Pritzker prizewinner Zaha Hadid created a visionary space landscape specifically for the museum in Singapore in which more than 150 first-rate exhibits were presented. For its many years of commitment to art, Deutsche Bank was presented with the Patron of the Arts Award by the National Arts Council in Singapore.

The red dot is one of the most important awards for innovative design. "Given the countless design possibilities, contemporary communication design distinguishes itself via the quality of the works alone. The red dot has the task of making this quality visible," said Professor Peter Zec, initiator of the red dot design award and president of the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (icsid). "The works that received awards are characterized by an extraordinarily high level of design, are implemented in a stylistically clever way, and deserve this award," he stated, summing up the results of the competition.

The awards ceremony will take place on December 6, 2007, with the awarding of the prizes in the Casino Zollverein in Essen and the opening of the special exhibition in the red dot design museum. The exhibition with all the prizewinning works will be shown at the Casino Zollverein from December 7, 2007 to January 6, 2008.
