Red Dot has the whole scoop on their own awards ceremony for the Red Dot Awards, held this week at the Essen Aalto Theater in Germany. Sounds like it was a pretty great turnout for one of the biggest product design awards around, as they had more than a thousand in attendance. Though you’d kinda figure there would be a big crowd given that “of the submitted 2,548 products, 666 were distinguished,” which is sort of like that “give a role to almost everyone who auditions for the play, so more people will show up to watch it” kind of thing. But we’re definitely not knocking it, because we’re hoping the patent-pending product we developed together, “Froggles” (goggles for frogs), will earn a Red Dot next year.
