BlackBerry Wins Three Prestigious Red Dot Awards for Product Design

Published

on

BlackBerry Limited (NASDAQ: BBRY; TSX: BB), a global leader in mobile communications, earned three acclaimed Red Dot Awards for the high design quality of its BlackBerry® Q10, BlackBerry® Q5 and BlackBerry® Z30 smartphones. This year, the Red Dot Award’s international, 40-member expert panel evaluated 4,815 entries from 53 countries. Winners were selected based on the quality and innovative strength of each product.

“We pride ourselves on industrial design that is simple and intuitive in functionality, while maintaining iconic and familiar elements such as our keyboard and productivity-based user experience,” said Brian Paschke, Senior Industrial Designer, Portfolio Direction at BlackBerry. “While our smartphones have evolved over time, we remain focused on being highly detail oriented in order to deliver modern and high quality devices.”

The winners of this year’s Red Dot Awards will be recognized in Essen, Germany at the Red Dot Gala and subsequent Designers’ Night.

“The BlackBerry Design Team is honored to accept the prestigious Red Dot Product Design Award for the Q10, Q5 and Z30,” said Alison Phillips, Managing Director of Industrial Design at BlackBerry. “This award is a welcomed addition to the Red Dot Product Design award the team received for the BlackBerry Z10 smartphone last year.”

The award-winning products from the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2014 will also be presented in the Red Dot Museum – a special exhibition where visitors will get hands-on time with the winning BlackBerry devices from July 8 to August 3. This year’s Red Dot Museum houses the largest exhibition of contemporary design worldwide with approximately 2,000 exhibits spread over an area of more than 4,000 square meters.

“The 40 experts assessed the quality of the entries with the utmost care and attention,” said Professor and Doctor Peter Zec, Initiator and CEO of Red Dot.

“Due to their backgrounds, they also assessed the special cultural aspects of the designs from 53 countries. But only the best products receive an award from the jury. This is especially reflected in the percentage of successful entries in the Red Dot Award, which is much smaller in contrast to other international design competitions.

Therefore, the winners can be proud of their achievements – with their entries; they stood out from the rest and were able to pass the test in front of the critical eyes of the experts. This success will be perceptible during the Red Dot Gala, when the laureates will receive the recognition of the international audience.”

“Beginning Monday, our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated.
