“The iF DESIGN
TALENT AWARD 2019 shows us a world in intense transformation in which the
future is now! The intelligent use of resources and the connection between
people inspire projects to increasingly focus on meeting human demands.
Designers will have to reinvent themselves in order to respond to the future
with creativity and responsibility.”
Angela Carvalho, ncs DESIGN, Brazil
“As design begins
to respond to the challenges we face in the 21st Century, it is essential that
those in a position to identify trends and also reward exemplars of new
approaches, change accordingly with the times. Design can no longer pander to
the demands of the market but should rather acknowledge and embrace the complex
systems in which design happens and influences, the winning projects suggest
novel ways of achieving this, and can help to guide the next generation of
designers, inspiring them to challenge the role and purpose of design today.”
James Auger, Auger-Loizeau, United Kingdom
“It is time to
think seriously about how we should bring up our kids in a healthy way on both
psychological and physical aspects. We have to know we are just human-beings.
What is important for humans as being animals, too? Perhaps, “love”. The “love”
here has a wide spectrum. You have to look at the society or people with love.
You might then hit upon truly kind ideas for kids and parents. Then the society
would make more sense and the world will be a be a better place to live in. Please
do not chase only for efficiency. Because we are human-beings.”
Kanae Tsukamoto, Kanaé Design Labo, Japan
increasingly important to differentiate yourself from the competition and
highlight the (potential) brand in the company´s character, technology and
identity. Ensuring a sustainable quality of experience for the user creates a
connection and ensures long-term relationships. Design as an essential part of
(any) development process is the key to that. The iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD
provides a great opportunity for young designers to gain experiences in
interdisciplinary design aspects.”
