The German Design Award is one of the international design awards that is organized
by the German Design Council established in 1953.
The interesting thing about this award is that all the countries of the world receive an award,
and among the products recognized as having an excellent design only products recommended
by The German Design Council can become an award candidate.
At the 2018 German Design Award, the MIA poster designed
by OUWN and the sake Miyoshi were chosen as Winner and Special Mention.
Due to the fact that even receiving a recommendation is an honor in itself,
the STAFF members were all smiles. Because the MIA poster has been created many years ago,
we were delighted to have been recommended,
re-evaluated and selected.
At the 2017 GOOD DESIGN awards, the sake ‘Miyoshi’ received an award.
The Good Design Award is a comprehensive design-promotion system that picks good design out of a variety of unfolding phenomena, and aims to enrich our lives, industries, and society as a whole by highlighting and celebrating these works. It is hosted by the Japan Institute for Design Promotion, a public interest incorporated foundation.
Some of OUWN’s designs were covered in “Brilliant Logo” a book edited by BNN Inc..
I would like to thank everyone for all their great efforts.
‘Circulation’, a magazine advertisement created by OUWN, was nominated for the ADC award by the 2017 TOKYO Art Directors Club.

At the 2017 REDDOT AWARD , the sake ‘Miyoshi’ received an award.
The Red Dot Design Award is an international competition hosted by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Essen, Germany.
We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude for all those who supported us.

At the 2018 Graphis Design Annual,
Roppongi Hills’ 16AW advertisement “ALL THE SENSES” was chosen as a Gold Winner.
Another Gold Winner was Japanese sake maker Miyoshi, awarded for its production tools.
Also, “BLIND MOUSE,” created by Prople and Thought., was chosen as a Silver Winner.
Graphis is a design almanac with a long history. It was founded in 1944 in Switzerland,
then moved to New York in 1952, and has since been in publication.
It will be fortunate if it offers an opportunity to get to know the activities of those involved.
K-Design Award is an international design contest sponsored
by the Korean design portal, “DESIGNSORI”.
It is regarded as one of the most innovative contests in the world,
as it confers three of Asia’s major design awards.

Besides giving the Grand Prize,
which goes to the only winner of the contest,
the international judging committee gives the Gold Prize to the entries with the best design.
the Gold Prize is conferred to only one percent of the entire entrants.
At the K-Design Award 2017, OUWN’s Japanese sake “Miyoshi” received this very prize.
The award ceremony will be held at the Auditorium Coex in Seoul on August 26.
Since Korea seems to be a country that is serious
about designing (it is also where the splendid design book, “graphicmag” is based in),
we would like to take this opportunity to further establish ourselves.
MdN Corporation has released
“Designer’s Idea Strategy – Real Examples of Design Sketches which Produce Ideas.”
Ishiguro from OUWN appears in this.
You can get a glimpse of fragments of the ideas
that led to the production of the sake “Miyoshi.”
We’d love for you to pick one up.
“Novum – World of Graphic Design”,
considered by some the most influential graphic design magazine,
being published in Germany since 1924, has published an article about OUWN.
An interview with our member Ishiguro is featured.
We are very grateful for being mentioned in a publication with so much prestige and history.
