- Other Years
Recognizing excellence in all areas of design enterprise, the Core77 Design Awards annually celebrates the richness of the design profession as well as the insight and perseverance of its practitioners. Now in its eighth year, the Awards program remains dedicated to excellence and inclusivity, offering both students and professionals the opportunity to promote their best work on a global scale across 14 distinct design disciplines.
Founded in 2011, the Core77 Design Awards champions the principles of inclusivity, innovation, and excellence. Recognizing the broad spectrum nature of the design field, the Awards program offers 14 distinct categories for entry, each further broken into dedicated sections for professionals and students. Featuring a strong global presence, honorees are chosen by international panels of design leaders for their insight, integrity, and intent. After eight highly successful seasons, the Core77 Design Awards continues to celebrate the richness of the design profession and the brilliance of its practitioners.
Mirroring the theme of the Awards program it represents, the Core77 Design Awards trophy is a model of inclusion. A successful design rarely comes from singular effort - from ideation to strategy to implementation, innovative design solutions are nearly always the result of a collaborative, team-focused approach. To reflect the multitude of people involved in shaping winning designs, the Core77 trophy was crafted as a tool for recognition, both symbolically and literally. As a functional mold, the trophy can be used to manufacture additional casts, allowing each member of the team to be individually honored for their contribution.
