Renowned designer contest
The German Design Award is the international premium award of the German Design Council and is one of the world's most recognized designer competitions. The German Design Council is a competence center for communication and knowledge transfer in the field of design. It was founded in 1953 on the initiative of the German Bundestag. In 2017, the jury had to fight with members from science, business and design through 4000 designer products and projects from 50 countries.
"The annual winners not only exemplify the economic and cultural value of outstanding design, but also provide orientation and represent current themes and design directions," said Andrej Kupetz, chief executive of the Design Council, at the awards ceremony. Incidentally, Andreas Seufert did not even submit his book for the German Design Award. He had already won a prize in the Berlin Type Award in 2015 and was nominated for the German Design Award. The participants in this competition cannot apply themselves. To thank for this success, as Andreas Seufert says, the excellent cooperation of his agency Digitabula and with the printer. Not only the client, but also the Fondation Le Corbusier in Paris was very satisfied with the book.
Layout and image editing
Back to Andreas Seufert. Together with the printing house Peschke in Munich, he has selected flawless, white paper that does not disturb the colour contrasts in the book. The entire layout and image editing of the book are by Andreas Seufert. The lyrics are by professional authors. They appear in the book in three languages, German, English and French, and include Le Corbusier, his buildings and the description of every single component of his colour palette.
