The Design Value Award


The Design Value Awards is presented by the Design Management Institute (DMI), the oldest organization of the kind in the world which has been promoting awareness about the strategic value of design, about its use in achieving business results, and about turning innovation into marketable products.

The Design Value Award is awarded to projects and organizations that have been successful in utilizing design and design management to achieve viable financial results, social or environmental change, or a change in the organization culture.

Among the recipients of the award in 2016 – which was the year KCDM was first awarded – were SAP Design & Co – Innovation Centre, Philips Design, Artefacts and BCG Digital Ventures. The list of last year’s recipients includes renowned brands and companies such as Adobe, Volvo and Cadillac.
