A new year has just begun, and the A’ Design Awards and Competition has updated their “World Design Rankings” medal table, which shows the number of platinum, gold, silver, bronze and iron awards received by participants (per country) in 2010 to 2014. It is like the Olympics but for art, design and architecture.
Currently the list highlights 79 countries, a number that will increase in time as there will be new entrants from other regions. The top 10 nations and territories are United States (#1), Turkey, Hong Kong, Italy, Great Britain, Japan, China, Brazil, Germany and Greece. You can find out which country is the best-of-the-best in each category like graphic design, 3D modelling, furniture and more. There is also a page with info about the leading designers, take a glimpse here to find out who is in number one spot.
The goal of “World Design Rankings” (WDR) is to share data about the present state of the design industry to economists and journalists, as well as highlight excellent design through the annual competition at A’ Design Awards.
