NEW YORK—August 17, 2010. Since 1954, the
I.D. Annual Design Review has recognized the best in
product, furniture, graphic and environment design, from the iconic
to the obscure. This year the esteemed showcase features the
addition of a student prize and a new venue for the exhibition.
F+W Media is pleased to announce that the “I.D. Annual Design
Review 2010” exhibit will be on display at the AIGA National Design Center in
New York City from August 30 to September 10. When the exhibit
opens this month at 164 Fifth Avenue in the Flatiron District,
visitors can expect to be delighted, surprised and entertained by
the winning entries.
“We are honored that AIGA has agreed to host this year's 'I.D.
Annual Design Review 2010',” said Gary Lynch, publisher &
editorial director of F+W Media's Design Community. “The
affiliation reflects the true interdisciplinary nature of design
and the leadership role AIGA plays in recognizing great design
across all disciplines.”
“AIGA and I.D. have been closely aligned in our commitments to
showcasing great design—design that intrigues the spirit and works
effectively in meeting the challenges of often difficult problems,”
added Richard Grefé, executive director of AIGA.
This year the I.D. Annual Design Review introduces the
Rado Young Talent Design Award, which grants a $10,000 prize to one
student whose work was distinguished by the innovative use of
technology and materials.
“Rado chose to award the project 'Phenomena—Room
Divider' by Sang Hoon Kim from Keame Design Studio because the
room divider is a very aesthetic, innovative yet traditional
object. This screen creates a feeling of movement and life with the
light passing through it like the sun shining through the trees,”
said Roland Struele, president of Rado, Switzerland. “For a design
company like Rado, innovation and forward-thinking ideas are our
key values, and we're proud to support this young designer with

newly-created I.D. Annual Design Review website.
A private reception will also be held in September at the AIGA
National Design Center, where the Annual Design Review winners and
the winner of the Rado Young Talent Design Award will be

Section: About AIGA -
Design feedback shouldn't be a painful process. In fact, if it's a painful process, I'd say someone's not doing it right. The most successful projects are usually ones with a collaborative workflow between a well-balanced team of designers, developers, project management, and of course — clients! It's essential to have a healthy feedback process, in which the client knows exactly what feedback is most helpful for the next round of revisions, and the designers and developers know how to translate and solve those problems.
I know, I know, both web teams and people who have hired web teams are out there groaning right now (we get it, and this isn't a soapbox). Everyone has had their fair share of difficult projects and poor communication, but it doesn't have to be that way. In efforts to improve the feedback process for web clients and design teams alike, I'm writing this two-part article about How to Give Good Web Design Feedback, and Turning Client Feedback Into Your Best Work.
