Vectorworks, Inc. Named GOOD DESIGN® Award Winner

Design Without Limits Branding Wins in Graphic Design Category.

Columbia, MD (January 11, 2024) — Global design and BIM software provider Vectorworks, Inc. has been honored as a GOOD DESIGN® winner for its “Design Without Limits” entry in the graphic design category. The GOOD DESIGN Awards Program, presented by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and Metropolitan Arts, is the world's oldest and most prestigious program for the most innovative and cutting-edge industrial, product, and graphic designs produced around the world.

For more than seven decades, the awards program honors the yearly achievements of the best industrial and graphic designers and world manufacturers for their pursuit of extraordinary design excellence. This year, the Museum received a record number of submissions from the world’s leading manufacturers and industrial and graphic design firms, representing the most important and critical mass of influential corporations in the design industry from over 55 countries, representing the best consumer design ranging from the ‘spoon to the city’ for sustainability, superior design and unparalleled function.

The Vectorworks Creative team spearheaded the design and inspiration to capture the creativity of the software and implemented this concept on employee t-shirts, customer swag, and throughout the company’s headquarters office, including an interactive mural. The team was challenged to develop unique elements and special design touches to ensure the office and its experience embody Vectorworks’ unique brand.

“Our brand’s tagline, design without limits, is as much of an explanatory statement as it is an imperative one — an invitation to unleash your inner design superhero, to go beyond what's expected, and to dream up something extraordinary,” said Vectorworks Senior Creative Director David Puppos. “One of the benefits of having an in-house Creative team is a deep understanding of our brand, the audiences we serve and the identity of our company. We’re incredibly honored for this recognition that is a testimony of how Vectorworks is an open door for designers to unleash their creativity and push beyond boundaries.”
