We teamed up with A’ Design Award & Competition to bring to you the following post. Our partners are hand-picked by the Polpettas Magazine team.

 

What is the most successful country in terms of design? Let me say it better: do you know where the designers that have been granted more with an A’ Design Award are from? If not, you’re pretty lucky because new year comes with some appealing news about design and geography with the World Design Rankings that lists all the countries according to the number of designers that have won with the A’ Design Award.

Countries do not individually join the rankings; they are represented by the participating designers indicating their countries or nationalities. Countries are sorted based on the number of Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Iron Design Awards won.

100 are the countries involved, and this year the winner is China, followed by United States, Japan, Italy, Great Britain, Hong Kong, Turkey, Taiwan, Germany and Australia.

If you’re curious to discover the complete results and where your country placed, please find the whole list here.

The aim of World Design Rankings is to offer info and ideas on the art and design industry conditions, and to help a global design culture grow more and more highlighting and supporting good design. WDR is to Design what Olymics is to Sports, at least that is what A’ Design Award wishes to achieve.

It’s not too late, you’ve still some time to submit your most brilliant project to A’ Design Award & Competition. Register now for next year competition: visit the A’ Design Award & Competition webpage to discover every single detail on the award, categories, benefits of winning, jury panel.
