TAIPEI, TAIWAN (October 2, 2019) Acer notebooks have earned the 2019 Good Design Award for outstanding design. Namely the new ConceptD 7 and ConceptD 9 for creators, and the Acer TravelMate P6 and the thin-and-light Acer Swift 7 for traveling professionals.
The Good Design Award is one of the world's top design awards that advocates for enriching lives and society through design. It matches the brand values of the ConceptD, Acer’s brand of products optimized for creators, which addresses the details that matter to creators the most. ConceptD products feature a minimalist design, display remarkable color accuracy, and provide high performance and quiet computing to enable creators to focus on their creative flow.
"The ConceptD line adopts an "elimination" design strategy that retains only the most important features that creators care about," said Seji Peng, AVP of Industrial Design, Acer. "I am delighted with the ConceptD notebooks winning the coveted Good Design Award so soon after its launch, and Acer will continue to develop more products that empathize and respond to users true needs."
More Acer notebook designs have been recognized by the Good Design Award. Intended for business users, the TravelMate P6 provides business people with long hours of uninterrupted use, and the thin-and-light Swift 7 is built with an ultra-narrow bezel for up to 92% screen ratio for enhanced visual experience.
