By Design Business Association


The DBA Design Effectiveness Awards are not about design, they’re about the difference design makes. Coveted Bronze, Silver and Gold awards recognise the compelling influence of design on the success of a project or business. Crucially, the awards are evidence-based, the impact of design measured and verified.

Entered jointly by client and designer, and rigorously judged by industry leaders in three rounds of judging, the Awards represent independent and authoritative recognition of the unambiguous value of design.

This year – we saw the impact of design across the spectrum. Hear more from Design Business Association Chief Executive Deborah Dawton.

We are delighted to announce the 2019 shortlist of 59 winning entries below. 

A third panel of judges, consisting of CEOs from FTSE100 and some of the UK’s leading brands, will meet in April to select the winner of the prestigious Grand Prix award. View the full list of judges here. Here’s more from Chairman of the judges, Clive Grinyer, on the awards themselves. 

The shortlisted entries will find out if they have won Gold, Silver or Bronze at the award ceremony and dinner at the Royal Horticultural Halls on the 12thof June.
