The International Yearbook Communication Design shows powerful communication-centred works and projects by design studios and companies focused on communication campaigns. Volume 1 contains projects from the more classical categories such as corporate design, annual reports, advertising, magazines, packaging and typography. Volume 2 is dedicated to the digital and multimedia disciplines, including e-commerce, spots and image films, websites, apps, computer games as well as interface and sound design. The creative brains behind the best product ideas are the winners of the honorary titles, 'Red Dot: Agency of the Year' and 'Red Dot: Brand of the Year', and are given a special place in the design yearbook.
