Brit Insurance Design Awards nominations announced

Nominated in the graphics category: Homemade is Best, Forsman & Bodenfors

The Brit Insurance Design Awards nominations have been released and the competition, now in it's fourth year, looks set to be the best yet.  

Across seven categories, this years nominations take in the best international designs from architecture and transport to graphics and interactive media.  There are many of the more well known nominations, Apple's iPad in the product category and several apps to accompany it in the interactive category including the apparently addictive Angry Birds and the Guardian's Eyewitness together with the Barclays Cycle Hire scheme (more commonly known as BorisBikes) in the transport category.

Particular lesser known nominations to look out for are Karo Architekten's Open Air Library in Magdeburg, Germany, the UK Pavillion for the 2010 Shanghai Expo designed by Thomas Heatherwick Studio and Irma Boom's minature epic Biography in Books.  

A final nomination to take note of is Forsman & Bodenfors' Homemade is Best, featured on LookSeeNow in October as a cookbook not meant for cooking.

All the nominations will be on show at the Brit Insurance Designs of the Year exhibition at London's Design Museum from 16 February to 7 August  2011 with category winners announced on the 28 February 2011 and overall winner announced 15 March 2011.  Look back here for more as it happens.
