Design Management Award 2017
The Design Management Award, which was established to assess the design management consciousness of institutions, companies and organisations in Hungary and to showcase the best practices and strategies in 2009, has been given to HAMERLI / 1861 Glove Manufactory of Pécs, a company that builds activities on traditional values and professional skills in a novel way this year.
Four other organisations have been awarded with the certificate of merit: Félegyházi Bakery Ltd, Kreinbacher Estate, MAACRAFT – The Social Workshop, Medence Group. These brands take advantage of design not only to differentiate themselves from competition but also to explore and share the inherent values of their narrow environment. Their identities are constructed on a combination of social, cultural, historical, geographical and other values, resulting in an added value that would bring economic and community success in any sector.
This year’s competition of the Design Management Award has been closed now with post-event communication running at present.
We are going to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the Award established by the Hungarian Design Council in 2018. The competition for the Award 2018 will be announced next spring, inviting the applications and nominations of companies that have been running and applying design management for five years or more.
