Best Client Award

With the Best Client Award, DDA recognises the added (im)material value of design for commerce and institutions. The prize is awarded annually to an organisation that deploys design professionally in the most strategic, sustainable and innovative manner. The prize was previously awarded to Artis (2014), Heijmans (2013), Suzanne Oxenaar and Otto Nan (2012) and Ahrend (2011).

Procedure and winner

The submissions are judged by a jury of experts, comprising Pieter Aarts (Design Management Netwerk), Rita van Hattum (BNO), Roel Stavorinus (Design management and communications) Luuk Ros (Tijdschrift voor Marketing) and Mark van Iterson (Heineken). They selected three clients that they believe have demonstrated both the connecting role and added value of design in practice: EHV365, Rijksmuseum and Industrial Park Kleefse Waard (IPKW). These five members of the jury will also be revealing the winner on Saturday 24 October. You can read more about the finalists and their projects on the DDA website.
