With the »Cologne Thumper” students of the Köln International School of Design (KISD) honor since 1996 »the most important designer of the year«. Thereby they recognize outstanding individuals or groups that have made outstanding contributions in the field of design. It is the only design prize worldwide that is granted by students.
In 2012 I proposed Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec as designer of the year, which were than elected by the majority of the students at KISD. For the awarding I organized the event and designed the communication.
