BE Industrial Design students ShanShan Wang, Alfred Boyagdis and Marco Tallarida have all been shortlisted for the internationally prestigious red dot design award!

The red dot award for design concept has grown to be the largest and most recognised professional design competition for design concepts and prototypes.  Last year the red dot design award received more than 15,000 applications from 70 countries in 2012 alone, making the competition one of the biggest and most prestigious design awards worldwide. Red dot design ranking is now the ultimate reference for design achievement and capability.

Big congratulations to our three students for their shortlisted design concepts, and special acknowledgements to Andrew Fowkes and Craig Burke - BE staff and mentors for the student’s designs.
