The <link en.red-dot.org - external-link "Opens external link in current window">Red Dot Design Award</link> is one of the largest and most renowned competitions in the world. For 60 years now, the Design Centre Nordrhein Westfalen has been recognising excellence in design.
The myclimate annual report for 2013 is honoured to receive this recognition. The report appeared in the form of an artfully hand-bound book with high-quality printing and materials. The special feature: There is only one physical copy. It is protected by a wooden cover, hand-made out of wood from the myclimate project “Electricity from FSC Wood Waste” in Brazil. The report toured for almost a year by bicycle currier and electric car through Switzerland and Germany. Compared to a conventional annual report, myclimate saved over 350 tonnes of CO₂ with “The One and Only”.
The core team at the agency <link www.kspch.ch - external-link "Opens external link in current window">KSP</link>, Benny Goldstein, Flo Wacker (creative direction), Christian Stüdi (text), Kevin Zysset (graphics), Flavia Meyer and Marc Gooch (consultancy) managed the design and production process. The <link www.bubu.ch - external-link "Opens external link in current window">bookbindery Burkhardt</link> in Mönchaltdorf was responsible for the intricate production.
The much sought-after Red Dot is a recognised seal of quality and is awarded in the areas of product design, design concept and communication design. During sessions that lasted several days, the international jury evaluated 7,451 submissions in person and on-site. Only the best of them were recognised with the seal of quality for design.
The current <link stop-the-water.myclimate.org - external-link "Opens external link in current window">myclimate 2014 annual report</link> is digital; but it still faces a unique danger. It’s threatened with sinking under virtual water and can only be saved by personal engagement in the form of social media activity.
