World Design Rankings

Each year, the World Design Rankings unveil the latest design rankings of countries globally — utilizing data from the participating creatives in the A’ Design Award and Competition.

The aim of the World Design Rankings is to highlight key data and insights to economists and journalists with regards to the design industry, ultimately contributing to global design culture by supporting and showcasing innovative and beautiful design. This year, the US heads the table, followed by China in second place. Japan has taken the third position, moving up five spots in just a year. Italy comes in at number four, and Hong Kong rounds off the top five. Want to see the entire list, and where your country has placed? You can view the full global design rankings here.
