United States of America, Turkey and Hong Kong are the top 3 countries awarded with the A’ Design Award according to WDR (World Design Ranking). The displayed rankings are based on the current aggregated scores of participants between the years 2010 and 2012. The aim of the ranking is to contribute to global design scape through advocating and highlighting good design.

We hope to ignite further competition in the design industry by providing the world design rankings; we believe this is very important for the world, because more competition would lead to better designs; better designs mean longer-lasting products, more ergonomic designs, highly socially responsible projects and so on. At micro-level, the world design rankings help designers understand their world-wide position, however most importantly, at macro-level the world design rankings will push the participating designers, artists and architects to do better, to come up with better products and designs which in turn would create positive impacts for our future generations.
