Parakey and The Techno Creatives win Red Dot 2021

The PropTech company Parakey and the product & design agency The Techno Creatives have won the distinguished Red Dot 2021, one of the biggest design competitions worldwide. From 9,000 applications this year, the recognition in the Brands & Communication Design was given for Parakey’s product video, in the category Film & Animation.

Parakey is a scalable cloud and smartphone-based access control system. The awarded movie used storytelling and 3D illustrations to take viewers on a journey within Parakey's product line, showcasing the features and technology behind its mobile access platform, professional digital lock, and control unit.

“Parakey’s products are complex and we manage to create a movie that covers the full journey —  from production and installation to usage — in a clean and understandable way. Working with a clean typography, animations and illustration, so that all users can visualize and recognize that unlocking a door digitally with Parakey is simple, just as it should be”, explains Jay Design, Interaction Design Specialist at The Techno Creatives. “For us, it’s an honour to receive the remarkable Red Dot award with Parakey.” 

“We are happy and grateful for The Techno Creatives’ expertise help to visualize how and where our mobile access platform is used. Although, we are not surprised that their great work was awarded the Red Dot Award and we are proud to be a part of it”, says Cécilia Rubinstein, Marketing & Communications at Parakey.
