Human Won Another Oscar - RED DOT, a World Design Award

July 31, 2020 - Following the recent Webby awards, the digital “Oscar” in the web design category, Human has won another prestigious international award for its website, for the seventh time in a row, this time for excellence in design.

Red Dot is one of the world's most famous awards for excellence in design awarded by a jury of 24 world design experts once a year, and it has been going on for more than 65 years now. This most sought after global quality label in design, this year went to the Croatian Human for their website, in the Brand Communication & Design category. The award is even more significant when considering the fact that last year’s winners are companies like Sony, which won the award for their gaming platform Playstation, KIA Motors for the KIA Ceed website, and Google for their Store.

Good design is more than just a visual impression. It is a combination of communication, aesthetics, and the experience that the user experiences when using a product, and the Human website, which combines various elements, from attractive photos to interesting texts, confirmed this thesis and won the praise of the jury.

The latest award, Red Dot, is already the seventh award in a row that Human has won for its website, the most awarded in Croatia. In addition to the two recently won Webby Awards, they are proud holders of the Lovie, W3, CSS Winner and Mixx awards, confirming that, in addition to website development, they are also recognised internationally when it comes to creativity and design.

“Our Human story started about a year ago. During the first presentation of the website alone, it was clear to us that we did a good job, which has been confirmed by international awards that help us create recognition and open opportunities for some new, interesting collaborations. Red Dot is the crown of our work so far because being in the company of the world's greatest innovators such as Apple, Ferrari, Siemens, BMW and other big players who have moved their products and design for the better, is a great honour and confirmation that we're doing creative and innovative things”, said Vanja Bertalan, CEO of Humana. 

Due to its reputation, Red Dot, often called the "Oscar" for design, often is used as a reference when it comes to the latest design trends, so this world-renowned award also confirms the innovation and global competitiveness of Croatian design. 

Prizes will be awarded to the winners at the Red Dot Gala in Berlin on October 23, 2020. During the same evening, the awarded works will be exhibited at an exclusive exhibition and will be able to be seen in the book International Yearbook Communication Design 2019/2020.

Designers Behind Visual Identity of 66th Pula Film Festival Win Prestigious International Award

August 24, 2019 - The most prestigious and largest international design award - Red Dot Award: Brands & Communication Design - went to the Rašić + Vrabec studio, the designers behind the visual identity of the 66th Pula Film Festival.

This year, more than 8600 projects applied for this prized award, and the international jury of 24 reputable experts selected the logo of the 66th Pula Film Festival as one of the best in the Brand Design & Identity category for logo design, reports HRTurizam.

"We are honored that the jury chose this award-winning logo for the 66th Pula festival, which is one of the oldest continuous film festivals in Europe and the world. At that time, we already felt that this logo was awaiting a very successful future,” pointed out the authors, Vedrana Vrabec and Marko Rašić.



“Using the figures in the logo emphasizes the tradition and longevity of the festival itself. The figure itself is compelling and symbolic and allows for numerous uses and associations.

The viewers interpreted the logo in different ways; from eyebrows to eyeglasses, peepholes, the Arena floor plan, movie rolls, and even exclamation points, etc. From the very beginning, it proved to be inspiring and applicable, and the audience's reactions were excellent,” the authors added.



The Red Dot Awards will be presented to the winners at an awards ceremony on October 1 in Berlin, and the award-winning projects will be on display at Designers' Night that same evening. The winning works will also be immortalized in the International Yearbook Brands & Communication Design 2019/2020, due out November 14.
