For the past few months, and like we mentioned on the site a few weeks ago, we have been showing you a bunch of the great entries and award-winners from the 2014 A'Design Awards, the world's largest design competition awarding best designs, design concepts and products & services. As we have said over and over, the A'Design Awards is a great chance to see both the future of progressive design, functional design, and well though-out inventions that makes you feel good about mankind. Last week we made a "Call to Entries" for the A' Design Awards 2015 (really pushing Lighting Products, Exhibition Design, and Packaging Design!), and today we want you to nominate your best designs and enter your work!!!
Before nominating their projects, participants can get a complimentary preliminary score for their submissions by simply uploading their works. Deadline for submission is on February 28, 2015. Winners will get early communication on March 7, 2015, and results will be announced to public on April 15, 2015.

Most importantly, REGISTER YOUR DESIGN IDEAS HERE!!!
Here are some past winners:
(Real Boy Push Pins / Thumb Tacks by Duncan Shotton... why do we like it? It's simple, playful, and something that all ages can appreciate.)
(Golden West Bay Tower by MZ Architects... why do we like it? It makes you double-take, it doesn't ruin the skyline, and provides and interesting aesthetic to the existing skyline)
(Or2 Photochromic Canopy Structure by Orproject... wy do we like it? Simple way to add color and abstraction to your house. In this case a very Spanish-looking house.)
(The Zephyr Multifunctional Bike Storage Bollard by Rick Hall... why do we like it? Let's face it, most bike racks are eye-sores. This plays off the idea of being functional public art.)
(Ashgabat Tele-radio Center ((TV Tower)) Production/Post Production/Broadcasting by Polimeks Construction... why do we like it? Location. )
(Customizable multi-purpose bus Urban Bus by Leonardo Santos E Barros... why do we like it? Because the party bus needs an update? No, again, most bus services in the US especially are eyesores in the city, and this updates with both function and style.)
(Branding of Basketball Museum Logo by SungHoon Chung... why do we like it? Read about why we like the Jazz book. Simplicity for a big subject. )
(Utrecht City Theatre Corporate identity by Edenspiekermann Amsterdam... why do we like it? This was our favorite A'Design entry when it came to fonts and text.)
(good morning original calendar 2012 “Farm” Calendar by Katsumi Tamura... why do we like it? Kids need a refresh on more simple toys and games, and this fits both function and style.)
(The booklight Lighting by Kahyun Kim... why do we like it? Because, like lots of people with lots of books, we need somethign to go in-between them and add a little flare.)
