Cambridge Design Partnership is recognised as one of the top three agencies in Europe and the Americas for design innovation, according to the Red Dot awards programme.
Red Dot has become established internationally as one of the most sought-after seals of quality for good design. They organise annual competitions looking to applaud the best in product design, globally.
This year Cambridge Design Partnership (CDP) came third in the ranking for design firms that continuously and progressively, produce cutting edge and forward-thinking product concepts.
“We are absolutely delighted with the news,” says Mike Cane, founding partner of CDP. “To have this sort of accolade on a global stage is really gratifying. It’s a testament to the hard work and creativity of our whole team.”
In presenting the award, Ken Koo, President of the Red Dot Award in Asia congratulated CDP and stated that the ranking recognised CDP’s continued investment in design and was a “vigorous reflection of real and sustainable design innovation capability”.
CDP was founded 23 years ago and has grown rapidly offering customer focussed technology and design innovation. Capabilities start with front end research, strategy and design, and include mechanical, electronics and software engineering as well as manufacturing and quality management. They work for market leading companies in healthcare, consumer technology and energy in Europe and US.
CDP innovations which have won coveted Red Dot Awards in recent years include the First Response Monitor, a wearable connected device which measures and broadcasts patients’ vital signs for instant analysis by medics in emergencies. Another is Klarus, a drug delivery system aimed at patients with conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, which necessitates regular self-injection with medication.
