The contest invites individual designers, studios, and production companies working in design and architecture to submit sustainable, ethical, responsible and creative designs for consideration. The winner will receive 3 free months of international press service. Participation in the contest is free of charge. For Novità Italia, this project is a declaration of love to our gracious host, Mother Earth.

About Novità

Italia Novità Italia is an international team focused on the development of strategic brand and communication projects, the organization of architecture and design events, and the promotion of synergies between creative talents and companies. Founded in Milan in 2015 by Barbara Musso, a communications professional with a background as a designer, Novità Italia is partnered with the American agency Novità Communications.

A professional relationship that began with the New York office in 1999, and has evolved into a dynamic and flexible collaborative partnership. But Novità Italia also has unique characteristics that set it apart from its American partner. Both agencies share a dedication to conscious and responsible design, but at the Milan headquarters, that ethos joins with the promotion of Italian talent and artisan tradition, attention to small and local supply chains, and devotion to emerging designers.

Responsibility and sustainability has been part of the Milan-based agency’s DNA from the very beginning. Novità Italia loves the kind of design that shines a light on the well-being of the environment and of human beings. The agency, thanks to its international team, has told the stories of products made with innovative “green” materials, eco-friendly production processes, and architectural and urban planning projects developed according to the principles of “design thinking”. It has organized events exploring the links between humans and nature through design and architecture. It presents many designs with a united goal: adding ethics and responsibility to a profit-driven business.

Novità Italia has earned a prestigious place in the media world thanks to its strong collaborationwith the New York partner, and new networks developed with London and Tokyo.

In occasione del contest “Novità Italia: advancing responsible design for a better future”, l’agenzia lancia il nuovo sito web Grafica essenziale e funzionale curata dal graphic designer Luca Bogoni e un collegamento diretto con il sito di NY per sottolineare il rapporto di continuità professionale.
