Good Design Award -Japan-



Logo mark, right regarding trade name belongs to Japan Design Promotion Organization of Japan Foundation.



There is the Good design award in Japan. Excellent works in various fields are chosen each year. Below, I will explain the Good Design Award by referring to the official website.


"G Mark" is a symbol mark indicating that it received the Good Design Award, and it is a communication tool that connects society and design. In 1957, it was designed by Mr. Yusaku Kamekura of Japan's leading graphic designer. It has a very high recognition rate in Japan.


Mr. Yusaku Kamekura

After the Second World War, Mr. Kamekura Yusaku is the big name of the design world that created Japanese design. Besides the posters of the Tokyo Olympic Games and the Osaka World Exposition, he is a graphic designer whose name is known worldwide, working on leading logo marks such as "G Mark," "Traditional Crafts" and "NTT" one after another. Also known as a person who first introduced photographs and illustrations to the poster, he is a meritorious person who raised Japan's graphic design to world standard. It was a new way of "design" that led the Japanese design world after the war and did not penetrate at that time, and gave a great influence to the Japanese economy.



The Good Design Award covers many things from small products to buildings. Since the announcement in 2018 is not yet, please see the 2017 Good Design Award winning work.
