17/03/2011

The Verbatim Clip-it USB Drive is a simple and ingenious solution that combins USB storage with a clip that can attach easily to paper or other thin objects.

2,756 products from 43 countries were put forward for the design accolade with only 50 selected as gold award winners.  The jury selected the winners on design quality, functionality, finish, material selection, degree of innovation, environmental impact, ergonomics, ease of operation, safety, brand value and branding.
Verbatim received particular praise from the jury: “The smart product design widens the spectrum tremendously. A very nice, contemporary must have!”


“Only quite exceptional design achievements are honoured with the iF gold award and we are very proud to receive for the first time the product design award,” explains Rüdiger Theobald, EUMEA Marketing Director at Verbatim. “Available in a range of vibrant colours, Verbatim’s Clip-it USB drive combines flash storage with the simple functionality of a paperclip, making it a wonderfully practical solution for daily business or private users,” comments Theobald

After winning the Red Dot “Best of the Best” Design Award in 2010 the iF design gold award is the second commendation for designer Arman Emami and Verbatim.
