This year, already for the tenth time, the German Design Council presented the awards to the winners in the Categories 'Excellent Product Design', 'Excellent Communications Design', and 'Excellent Architecture'.

"As an innovative company where the development of new products is already part of our DNA, the overall image concept must be in tune. In this context, the corporate design is one of the most important factors," says Sandy Eggers, Head of Corporate Branding in the Corporate Communications department at tesa, responsible for the further development of the tesa design. "With our consistent market presence, we strive to make professionalism, innovation as well as our customer focus perceptible on an emotional level too".

The German Design Award is given by the German Design Council ('Rat für Formgebung'), the German brand and design authority.
