On Friday evening, the winners of the National Design Award of Latvia 2021 were awarded in five categories: product design, digital design, environmental and interior design, graphic design, as well as service, policy and strategy design. The main prize was awarded to the winners of the graphic design category Nord ID Riga for the book Stories in Sounds.
As the jury evaluated the submitted works remotely this year and they did not have the opportunity to get acquainted with the characteristics of the product design works in person, the 1st place was not nominated in this category. Three 2nd place winners were named instead.
