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.

I know 2014 is barely half over, but A’ Design Award is already preparing for their 2015 award competition. The early nominations deadline is June 30th, so be sure to get on over to their site and register.

If you’re not familiar with it, A’ Design Award and Competition seeks the best in design from around the world in over 80 different categories, grouped by content. Some of the category groups you might be interested in learning more about are the Good Industrial Design AwardGood Architecture Design Award, and the Good Product Design Award.


Their distinguished award is more than just a shiny mantle-worthy object. In addition to an actual trophy, you get a certificate, score card, major press, assistance with preparing your portfolio, marketing on and offline as well as an invitation to their annual gala. Your designs will be reviewed by an international jury panel of scholars, professionals and media members.

Here are some of this year’s winners we absolutely love. Just think – you could be featured here next year!
