GOOD DESIGN AWARD

LONG LIFE DESIGN AWARD

ASEAN DESIGN SELECTION

The ASEAN countries produce many products of excellent design that take advantage of regional materials and technologies as well as of the life and cultures that form their background. The Good Design Award ASEAN Selection is a project to introduce the typical designs of these countries to the Japanese consumers.

The year before last, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry and ASEAN-Japan Centre (ASEAN Promotion Centre on Trade, Investment and Tourism) proposed use of the Good Design Award in implementing part of the Center's ongoing program to support exports to Japan. JDP studied the proposal in light of the various roles that the Good Design Award is supposed to fulfill, and decided to proceed by provisionally creating an ASEAN Design Selection category under the Good Design Award. This project was enthusiastically received by the governments and industries of the countries concerned. Even though this was the first year, we were very fortunate to receive some 170 applications. An overview of the entries is given below.

Yearbook

The Yearbook which carries all the annual award winners is published every year.
It introduces special award winners such as Good Design Grand award, Gold award winners etc. with interviews/contributed articles to/from jury and designers as well as Good Design Award, Long Life Design award and Frontier Design Award winners.
It is not only an official record regarding Good Design Award but also the memorials to hand down the achievement of Japanese design at the time.
In this way, it is a design almanac we are proud.
