The annual Good Design Awards are Australia’s oldest and most prestigious international Awards for design and innovation with a proud history dating back to 1958. The Awards celebrate the best new products and services on the Australian market, excellence in architectural design, engineering, fashion, digital and communication design, design strategy, social impact design and young designers. 

More than 55 Good Design Awards Jurors evaluated each entry according to a strict set of design criteria which covers ‘good design’, ‘design innovation’ and ‘design impact’. Projects recognised with a Good Design Award must demonstrate excellence in good design and convince the Jury they are worthy of recognition at this level. 

About Make Earth Greta Again 

Trumped. A two-for-one double-take and bit of wordplay: from localised faction to global action. The poster is (by request) part of the #MateActNow ‘digital protest’, featuring in the fundraising limited edition fundraising book of the same name. 

The Good Design Awards Jury praised our poster, commenting: “Visually clean and simple with great  wordplay and ‘double take’. The simplicity and cleverness is indisputable."

Dr. Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia said: “Receiving a Good Design Award is a significant achievement given the very high calibre and record number of entries received in 2020. 

“Australia’s Good Design Award is more than a symbol of design excellence – it represents the hard work and dedication towards an innovative outcome that will ultimately make our lives better. These projects showcase the shear brilliance of design and the potential it has to improve our world,” said Dr. Gien. 

Why, thank you very much, Dr. Gien. And Good Design Awards. 

And Greta.
