This year’s jury was chaired by Ilse Crawford and consisted of Johanna Agerman Ross (editor of Disegno), architect Amanda Levete, Olga Polizzi (director of design for Rocco Forte Hotels), garden designer Sarah Raven, Nicolas Roope of Poke and, er, Griff Rhys Jones
The panel chose the Venice Architecture Biennale as winner in the Graphics category. Its stencil typography is a reference to Venetian street signage, or nizioletti (Eye has a good post about the thinking behind the project here)
Gov.uk won in the Digital category (read our extensive piece on the project from our Nov 2012 issue here)
Other category winners were, in architecture, Frédéric Druot, Anne Lacaton and Jean-Philippe Vassal’s Tour Bois-Le-Pretre, which revived an old tower block in Paris
In Fashion, the winner was, unusually, a documentary, Lisa Immordino Vreeland’s film Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel
While ColaLife and PI Global’s anti-diarrhoea kit, Kit Yamoyo, which is made available to those in need in Africa using Coca-Cola’s distribution channels, won in Products
The seven winning designs will now compete for the overall Design of the Year 2013, to be announced on April 16. The winning entries, along with all the shortlisted designs are on show at the Design Museum until July 7.
