Nominate your best designs to A' Design Awards 2015
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 ProductsExhibition Design, and Packaging Design!), and today we want you to nominate your best designs and enter your work!!!

For 2015, there will be 3 International Exhibitions: In Italy, In Holland and In Ireland, to celebrate the Dublin's World Design Hub 2015 status. Check the registration form here!

So what does someone get if the win an A'Design Award? Here is the lowdown: The Laureates of the A’ Design Award & Competition get fame, prestige, recognition, credibility, publicity and international awareness, in addition to a comprehensive and extensive winners’ kit which includes everything you could potentially need to celebrate the success of winning the A’ Design Award. The A' Design Award Winners' Kit is called the "A' Design Prize" and it includes the 3D Printed Metal A' Design Award trophy in Black Luxury Box, the annual yearbook which is available in both digital and hardcopy versions (winners get both), printed design excellence certificate in metal frame, award winners manual which helps you get more out of your award status, free gala-night invitation for two people to the award ceremony (which will be at Lake Como in Italy, maybe you will see Clooney), free participation and space allocation in the winners' exhibition (both online gallery inclusions as well as physical exhibition in Italy)... more information here!

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.

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. )

(Jazz Book by Robert Nippoldt.. why do we like it? We prefer most of our book covers, especially when dealing with such a grand subject, to be as simple and effective as possible.)


(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.)
