There are so many fascinating projects submitted to last yearâ€™s Aâ€™ Design Awards, like the Kremlin-looking 3D-art by Jerico Santander that actually represents “a transcendental and alternative idea of extraterrestrial life” (see above). As well as a fashion collection based on designerÂ Rong Zhangâ€™s Chinese upbringing and the Victorian-era; stylized tattoos, erotic bracelets, futuristic chairs, and much more.
Architecture and product design are still big contender categories in the awards, but as you can see there are plenty of other creative fields to participate inâ€”100 to be exact. Entries submitted are reviewed by an esteemed panel of jury members that include people of the press, designers, and academics. On April 15, 2019, the winners are announced on the official website and online publications like ours, Boredpanda, Designboom, iGNANT, Dezeen and others. Winners will get their works published in a special-edition hardback book and will be invited to attend the award ceremony at Lake Como in Italy.
Deadline: September 30, 2018.
