DX Awards announced


At an awards dinner held Nov. 29, the Design Exchange announced the winners of the 2007 Design Exchange Awards (DXAs).

The DXAs celebrate the success of Canadian designers in the areas of:
Architecture, Fashion, Graphic Design, Industrial Product Design, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture and Urban Design.
This year 35 awards were handed out to designers in 12 categories for projects completed in Canada, the U.S. and in international cities.
The winners were presented with a plaque and their award-winning work will be featured in an exhibition at the Design Exchange until January 27, 2008.

Established in 1991, the Design Exchange Awards are the most highly anticipated and the only national multi-disciplinary design competition to judge designer’s work on commercial effectiveness.
Canadian designers from any field may submit projects produced in and outside of Canada.
It promotes Canadian design and excellence and recognizes the critical role of design in all types of organizations, including commercial entities (large and small businesses), not-for-profit organizations and the public sector.
