In 2016, the honorary title “Red Dot: Design Team of the Year” was granted to the Blackmagic Industrial Design Team led by Simon Kidd in recognition of highest design quality and a sustainable creation policy. With “Creative Video Revolution by Blackmagic Design”, the designers traditionally showcase themselves in a self-designed and self-implemented exhibition in the Red Dot Design Museum Essen.
The designers from Down Under develop hardware and software products used in films, television programmes and advertisements around the world, and in some of Hollywood’s most successful films including “The Martian”, “Mad Max: Fury Road”, “Furious 7” or “Avatar”.
Blackmagic’s driving philosophy is to foster true creativity by making highest quality video affordable. The design team combines this approach with its dedication to innovation, quality and rapid product development. By uniting user-centred design and highly innovative engineering, they consistently create products which not only challenge, but revolutionise the market.
