Since 1953 the iF International Forum Design GmbH (iF) has been a capable and reputable provider of design services at the interface of design and economy. Its aim is to strengthen public awareness of design. To achieve this, iF takes great care in extending the communication network that has been built through their design-oriented activities over the years.
With the iF competitions – the iF DESIGN AWARD and the iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD – iF has become one of the largest and most respected design centers in the world.
The iF logo, which is given to the award winners, has become an internationally acknowledged symbol of outstanding design. It serves as a beacon for design-interested audiences in the global economies.
In addition to promoting good design, iF is also committed to supporting social projects across the world – especially in cases where design plays an important role. With the iF SOCIAL IMPACT PRIZE, iF donates EUR 50,000 per year to exceptionally impressive projects and initiatives that are making a positive impact on social coexistence.
Under the label "organized by iF" the iF team also manages third party projects and offers multi-faceted know-how in all questions related to design and economic issues.
