Design and design award 2014

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Design and design award is an initiative from Marc Praquin. Everyday the homepage of is dedicated to two projects, one in graphic design and the other in product or packaging design. More than a virtual application, this is also a book published yearly with all the awarded project.

“I realised that it is much easier for us designers to create things than to make a name for ourselves. So I decided to offer our community a simple yet powerful tool, completely free of charge, to free us from the monopoly of mainstream media and, at long last, let us speak for ourselves. This is how the Design and Design project got started. Already a reference in more than 160 countries, this tool is now being extended to a non-virtual application: every year, all awarded projects are published in The Design and Design Book of the Year.”
Marc Praquin, Designer
