We kick of 2023 (can you believe it, 2023!?) with a list. A design list. Specifically, the annual A Design Awards, and what countries are excelling in creative ideas. At the beginning of the calendar year, the A’ Design Awards come out with the World Design Rankings to give an overview of just what country and where some of the best design ideas are coming from around the globe. It seems like every year, China finds its way on top, with the USA, Japan and Italy always near the top. This year’s list is revelatory! 

As with the last few years, China and the USA are leading the way, with the mainstays of Japan, Italy, Great Britain and Hong Kong all rounding out the top of the list. It’s really cool to see Turkey, Taiwan, and Portugal near the top! 

It’s getting close to a new year of the A Design, so register your own designs for a competition here. We always tend to lean on architecture as our favorite category to look into, but with travel coming back, it’s even fun to see how luggage and more industrial designs are taking shape! Take a look at the gallery above for some of the best of the best.
