Designed a product that gets results while balancing function, aesthetics and economic success? The Design Exchange Awards, presented by Canadian Business magazine, recognize the essential role of design in business. These awards are open to submissions from all types of organizations, including commercial, not-for-profit, and public sector.

Entrants are judged on the following five criteria for design effectiveness:

  • Function
  • Profitability
  • Aesthetics
  • Innovation
  • Accessibility and Sustainability

Winners will be listed in Canadian Business‘ best-selling December issue (the annual “Rich100” edition), which is on newsstands for up to three months. As a result, your company will become visible to Canadian Business’ total readership of 985,000! Winners will also be featured in a major exhibition at the DX, in press releases, and in Express, the DX newsletter.

If you feel that your business meets these criteria, ultimately proving that “good design = good business”, go make your submission now before the final deadline (26th September, 2008). Good luck!
