Good Design Award
The Good Design Award (G-Mark) is the successor to the Good Design Selection System, which was established by the former Ministry of International Trade and Industry in 1957. Since 1998, the Award has been sponsored by the Japan Institute of Design Promotion, as Japan's only system for assessing and promoting overall design. The Good Design Award is presented for designs that clearly demonstrate merit in the following assessment categories: designs that meet or exceed a certain standard, superior designs, and future-oriented designs.
