Registrations and submissions are now being accepted for the KOKUYO DESIGN AWARD 2020.

This year’s theme is “♡”. The target designs that we want to receive are for “stationery, furniture and all items generally used in working, learning and living scenes”. As all items generally used in everyday life are included in the target design areas, we are expecting the submission of flexible ideas, not only in stationery and furniture which are the main product categories of KOKUYO.

Here are messages from the judges regarding this year’s theme. Please take a look.

Submissions are comprehensively evaluated based on the three evaluation criteria:
1) Interpretation of the theme
2) Perfection of design and idea
3) Potential to become a product

The judges are Ryosuke Uehara, Masashi Kawamura, Tsuyoshi Tane, Teruhiro Yanagihara, Yoshie Watanabe, and Hidekuni Kuroda (KOKUYO Co., Ltd. President and CEO).

Registrations and Design submissions will be accepted through before 12:00 (noon) JPT on October 18.

We look forward to receiving pieces of work that will surprise us this year!
