2017 World Design Rankings in Arts, Architecture and Design

WDR Announces World Design Rankings in Arts, Architecture and Design

The United States of America takes the first place among 98 represented countries in 2017 with 557 Design Awards won globally

WDR ranks all the countries based on the number of designers that have been granted with the A’ Design Award.

China came second with 520 Design Awards and surprisingly (as it isn’t a large country) Taiwan came third with 447.

Design Business Insights

Furthermore, for each country, three additional tables for strengths, weaknesses and opportunities are listed. The table of “Design Strengths” displays dominant design fields, in which a country is highly competitive and successful; i.e. for example you could learn whether Italy is better in Fashion Design, Furniture Design or Graphic Design. The “Design Weaknesses” table display design fields that are below average in comparison to other countries. The “Design Opportunities” table display latent design categories that could be further explored by the country. Using this functionality press members and design enthusiasts could discover more about countries, and understand the importance of diverse design sectors for each country. These insights could also be used by policy makers to determine which specific design sectors or industries could need or receive government subsidies or subvention. To discover the complete list of countries included in the World Design Rankings, and to see in-depth design business insights for each country, interested parties could check the World Design Rankings at http://www.worlddesignrankings.com

Category Based Top Designers’ List

Parties who are more interested in the success of individual designers than countries should check the “Design Classifications” platform instead. The “Design Classification Platform” ranks designers, artists and architects in hundreds of creative fields and design categories including architecture, interior design, furniture design, fashion design, graphics design and packaging design among others. Using the “Design Classifications” platform, design enthusiasts could get answers to their questions such as “What is the best advertising design agency in the world?”, “Who is the worlds’ leading architect?”, “Who is the best Graphics designer in Japan” etc. The “Design Classifications” platform is therefore ideal for both press members to find excellent designers, artists and architects to feature, and is also a great source for businesses who are actively seeking the top talent in any given design field. Interested parties could discover “Design Classifications” and checkout category based designer rankings at http://www.designclassifications.com


Parties who are interested only to discover top designers, artists and architects regardless of the design discipline could check the individual and overall rankings of all designers, artists and architects at the Designer Rankings website. The Designer Rankings website provides an overall score and ranking of all designers based on the number of design awards won globally, in more than hundred creative disciplines including product design, graphic design, architecture, interior design, fashion design and service design. One may call that this is the list of “Top Designers”. The Designer Rankings are accessible online at http://www.designerrankings.com
