GOOD DESIGN Award for ElringKlinger's 2013 Annual Report

December 2014 +++ ElringKlinger's "beyond CO2" annual report has received the GOOD DESIGN Award. This is the second time since 2013 that ElringKlinger has been honored with the prestigious award in recognition of its annual report.

The renowned design award was created by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in 1950. The GOOD DESIGN Award is one of the oldest and most widely acknowledged competitions focusing on excellence in design.

This year it included several thousand submissions from 48 countries. Combining excellent conceptualization and visual execution, ElringKlinger's report was among the global product and graphic designs chosen by the panel of judges.

Fantastic. ElringKlinger annual report "Beyond CO2" takes silver at VISION AWARDS

"Fantastic. It has that special something." This was the assessment of ElringKlinger's latest annual report at the coveted VISION AWARDS. The VISION AWARDS competition is acknowledged as one of the world's most illustrious annual report events, a fact that is reflected by the 1,000-plus enterprises and associations entering their annual reports in the competition.

The image section, which used striking double-spread pages and concise headlines such as "Masters of Reduction" or "Captains of Cleanliness" to illustrate the key role played by ElringKlinger when it comes to reducing harmful emissions, stood out for its successful combination of the respective messages with a particularly succinct design concept.

The League of American Communications Professionals (LACP) judges were also impressed by the financial section, which was considered to be particularly well presented and structured.

The fold-out page integrated within the cover proved to be another eye-catcher, as it provided a summary of all the key financials. At the same time, the company was commended for its story telling, which included the corporate highlights of 2013 presented in the form of a news summary.

Based on this performance, the company was awarded a silver medal in the Automotive & Components category.
