Recognize dmi: Design Value Award Winners

“What if there were something that could help you grow?....It's called design.”
David Butler, VP Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Coca-Cola


DMI is proud to announce the Design Value Awards. The Awards will honor the contributions of teams who have delivered significant value through design or design management practices. The value can be expressed as positive financial, cultural and/or social impact.


Organizations of any size will be considered, as each have their own unique set of challenges. Awards are open to consultants, government agencies, non-profit organizations, educators and corporations of any size.


Winners will be announced at the dmi:40th Anniversary Gala.



Honor Our Founder, Bill Hannon

Back in 1976, long before the word design was a hot buzzword in the business world, Bill Hannon was inspired by the unexpected challenges he had faced as a corporate design manager.


“Nothing in my design education had prepared me for the thoroughly foreign culture I found myself in. I had to understand the different cultures of engineering, marketing, manufacturing, and even the bean counters.”


He had a vision for integrating design and business, and for design leadership that prompted him to create The Design Management Institute. 40 years later DMI is an internationally recognized authority in Design Management leadership, with members in over 40 countries.
