Announced by the A’Design Award team in Italy, the Best Design Media Award is a special recognition granted to leading design publications, which are nominated by designers, artists and architects from across the globe.
"This is a highly acclaimed award that we are extremely proud of," says Sumien Brink, VISI’s editor-in-chief. "What makes it particularly powerful is that the award came as a result of recognition by many of our very talented peers from around the world. We feel truly honoured," she adds.
Differing from the A’Design Award, where entries are peer-reviewed and awarded by a jury panel, in the case of the Best Design Media Award, recipients are selected by laureates of the A’Design Award.
According to New Media, the Best Design Media status is given once to each publication to acknowledge their role and support in the creation of a better world, and a heightened appreciation and understanding of good design that leads to the creation of better products and services.
New Media’s managing director Aileen Lamb says, "VISI is one of our iconic brands and has always been celebrated locally for its distinctive design and high production value. It’s wonderful to have it recognised globally, within such esteemed design circles."
