The Good Design Award Gold accolade is awarded to designs that have not only met the criteria for Good Design, but exceed them.

What the judges said

The Good Design Awards Jury praised Light Soy, commenting: “A nice, playful product which will be a commercial success. Sense of humour about the design which is appreciated as well as thoughtful use of materials and adaptability of design. Cool social commentary and art.”

Dr. Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia said: “Receiving a Good Design Award is a significant achievement given the very high calibre and record number of entries received in 2020.”

“There’s no doubt it has been a really tough year for everyone so it’s nice to be able to share some good news for a change. The projects represented in this year’s Good Design Awards shine a positive light on our creative and innovative capacity as human beings. These inspirational winning projects give me hope and optimism that our design community will continue to innovate, no matter how challenging the world around us is,” said Dr. Gien.

“Australia’s Good Design Award is more than a symbol of design excellence – it represents the hard work and dedication towards an innovative outcome that will ultimately make our lives better. These projects showcase the shear brilliance of design and the potential it has to improve our world,” said Dr. Gien.

We’re thrilled! Along with our inclusion in the longlist for the Dezeen Awards, we’re so pleased that our design ideas have resonated with people and are being recognised in this way.
