Since 2010 the A’ Design Awards have been tracking and displaying important data gathered from their prestigious competition at the World Design Rankings (WDR). The lengthy list has recently been updated to reflect the results of the past year and is now viewable to the general public.

 

Featuring entrants from 97 countries the WDR aims to highlight key data and insights to economists and journalists with regards to the design industry in the hopes of supporting and advocating innovative work. Included in this year’s list are nine new countries (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Nicaragua, Ecuador, Luxembourg, Kenya, Tanzania, Liechtenstein, Armenia, Cameroon and Swaziland) as well as a Design Business Insights section which shows which countries are leading the way in any particular category or discipline.

Those interested in the success of an individual designer (as opposed to a complete country) should visit the Design Classification section instead. Here you will find rankings for profressionals in a variety of creative fields including architecture, interior design, furniture design, fashion design, graphic design, packaging and more. Supporting this list is the Designer Rankings platform which sets aside categories to present the overall rankings of a designer and the awards they have won.

 

Here are a selection of winners from the 2017 competition:

Run Studio Run

Run studio run book

Building and sustaining a design firm is a massive endeavor and until recently there has been a lack of material on the subject. In Run Studio Run, a new book published by Extracurricular Press, Eli Altman sheds light on the topic and shares valuable insights that help to shape his naming/branding agency A Hundred Monkeys. With stories and personal commentary, Eli digs into the nitty gritty of running a business and the challenges along the way. Joining him are a diverse cast of studio owners and freelancers including Aaron Draplin, Kate Bingaman-Burt and Brent Couchman that provide advice and tips throughout the book. Run Studio Run is still in fundraising mode, but should be released this coming Spring. To support production costs and secure a copy please visit the Kickstarter campaign. Prints, pins and notebooks designed by the team at Moniker are also available as special rewards for backers.
