Zebra said its design team "puts the customer at the heart of everything it does which is central to this consistent recognition of its product portfolio", with its "ZC100 and ZC300 series design process" being "one of immense collaboration, pooling insights from designers, engineers, sales teams and customers".
As you can imagine, Curt Croley, Senior Director, Innovation and Design, Zebra Technologies said: "Zebra is delighted to receive this prestigious recognition of our ZC100 and ZC300 series card printers by Red Dot.
"Our design leverages Zebra’s best-in-class card printing technologies combined with a thoughtful user-centred design approach. Zebra’s commitment to creative, intuitive and effective design for enterprise customers helps us deliver unprecedented visibility and productivity at the edge of our customers’ operations.”

So, what are the ZC100 and ZC300 series card printers?
They "securely print a wide range of identification, payment and membership cards for retail, finance and hospitality sectors. The design addresses key end-user needs with user interface simplicity, self-aligning media and intuitiveness of card loading and removal.
"These printers offer unique industrial design with the slimmest profile and lowest clearance in their class. They can be installed in space-constrained environments such as under a counter or shelf."
In reference to the winners, Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of Red Dot said: "I would like to congratulate the laureates sincerely on their wonderful success.
“The fact that their products were able to satisfy the strict criteria of the jury bears testimony to their award-winning design quality. The laureates are thus setting key trends in the design industry and are showing where future directions may lead.”
