It’s precursor, the Good Design Selection System (or G Mark System), was founded in 1957 by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (the current Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry). Now, many companies and designers from both inside and outside of Japan participate in the system’s activities as a way to enhance industry and the quality of life through design. The award is considered a milestone of Japanese design and industry, and its symbol, “G Mark”, has been recognized widely as representing good design.
