There’s been a shakeup this year in A’ Design Award’s 2020 World Design Rankings (WDR)! China surpassed the United States of America to rank number 1 among 108 represented countries. The U.S. took the number 2 spot followed by Japan, Italy, Hong Kong, Great Britain, Taiwan, Germany, Turkey and Australia.

The 2020 design rankings of countries is based on the number of design awards won at this world renown international juried design competition.

There were 86 platinum design awards won globally and two new countries are included in the rankings: Macau (China) and Iraq.

Additionally, “Design Business Insights” ranks countries by their design fields and creative categories so you can discover which countries are ranked the top in Interior Design, Fashion Design or Industrial Design. To drill it down further, the “Designer Rankings” lets you discover top designers, architects and creatives.
