Italians (do) design it better

ITALIAN DO IT BETTER, italian design, best italian design

I’ve already talked in the blog about A’ Design Award, the international design prize for indipendent designers.

For this Mondays Made in Italy coloumn I’m having a short tour in the past winning projects to find out which are the best Italian design creations, since there are a lot of Italian winners in past A’Design Award editions (remember my post about world rankings here?)

We often discuss on how difficult is to promote creative job and how hard is to protect ideas to be stolen, to give value to a creative work as design is. It’s often hard to get value of a creative job, since it is not a measurable one and the risk is to work a lot without receiving the right compensation or, even worse, to find your ideas to be copied elsewhere.

Well I think that in this regard A’ Design Award really does a good job both in the evaluation method than in the copyright respect, and I will tell you later why.

Before, let’s enjoy some winning Italian design projects from some of the 100 different design categories of A’ Design Award.
