You can learn more about individual designers in the “Design Classification Platform”. You can also discover the top designers, artists, and architects regardless of their design discipline on the “Designer Rankings,” which is ranked by the number of design awards won globally. The “Design Business Insights” also lets you see rankings by design fields and creative categories, like Interior Design, Fashion Design, or Industrial Design.
