Dezeen Awards


Show Design

Live Visuals

Dezeen’s annual awards celebrates design excellence across a wide plethora of outputs throughout the design world. We wanted to physically translate these values into the design for the 2023 awards. The concept was informed by ‘layering’ which hinted towards the wide variety of project types and design solutions. This was further developed through the use of a broad and vivid colour palette, brought to life with lighting. The design was part of a cyclical process where all materials could be directly re-appropriated without modification, or recycled through the supply chain to support Dezeen’s 2023 Awards focus on sustainability.
