The following post is brought to you by A’ Design Award and Competition. Our partners are hand-picked by the Design Milk team because they represent the best in design.

A’ Design Award & Competition is a well-respected annual design competition honoring the best in design, as chosen by a distinct jury of academics, professionals, and enterprise and focus group members. Aimed at helping young designers and startups gain recognition for their designs, A’ Design Awards hopes to help them reach new markets, launch their product into production and connect with the right business people to help them with their product ideas.

Like Design Milk, A’ Design Award and Competition supports designers who make good design.
