This year, in October and November, a team of 20 design experts from New York and San Francisco convened and assessed each idea in an adjudication process that lasted several days. Only concepts with the highest design quality won over the jury and were awarded the sought-after GOOD DESIGN Award.

As one of the world’s largest design competitions, the GOOD DESIGN Award guarantees a fair and independent assessment.
