Throughout the years, as technology and manufacturing bloomed and prospered, mankind's imprint on the planet, similarly, grew exponentially. Initially very little was understood about the adverse effects of pollution and waste, and even as information came to light, it was often met with indifference. Recently though, particularly the last few
There is still much about autism we do not understand, however, as it becomes increasingly prevalent, measures to alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life for those diagnosed become more and more important. Mental and social disorders, while often not as outwardly apparent as physical handicaps, can be equally debilitating,

Design grants us the power to change the world - and, for many designers, their world is their children. Every parent wants their child to be safe, happy, and healthy, and this year saw a notable effort from designers to try to ensure just that. Many honored projects were centrally
Research plays a crucial role in successful design, and the entries this year truly embodied that ideal. Many honored projects used research as a compass to drive their strategy, direction, and execution - ultimately valuing empirical data and experience over all else.

Our environment is a significant part of who we are. It shapes us, and in many ways defines us. With this in mind, every structure encountered in our everyday lives, from the smallest kiosk to the largest skyscraper, goes through a design process, often an exhaustive one. Designers are aware
Commercial equipment could reasonably be considered the unsung hero of industrial design. In designing a remarkable commercial equipment product, functionality supersedes trendiness, while practicality takes precedence over flashiness. Commercial equipment products impact lives in a number of ways- from increasing safety, streamlining efficiency, and improving health. Specifically, for our Commercial
Consumer Product design has a simple mission: to give the people what they want. To successfully navigate this mission, however, designers must travel complex avenues. Every factor must be considered- visual engagement, environmental impact, manufacturing cost- in order to appeal to the broadest array of consumers. Ultimately, designing a consumer
Affording younger generations the opportunity to learn facets and principles of good design at an early age is paramount in ensuring that design has a promising future. By effectively educating youths in design practice, the next wave of designers have a chance to not only carry on the legacy of
Perhaps the most important aspect of design is the ability to change existing paradigms and alter established ideologies, both on a cultural and societal level.

Each and every day we interact with furniture and lighting extensively, often taking for granted the careful detail and precision that go into designing these products.

While the rules and principles that guide and bind the physical world have, for the most part, been firmly established, the restrictions of digital environments are considerably more nebulous. Due to the mutable nature of the category, Interaction design is consistently fascinating- each year introducing new ideas and concepts that
As the world of design has moved toward customization, sustainability, and self-assembly, maker culture has become an increasingly prominent design force. The maker movement has led the vanguard on a new era of design, an era with a renewed focus on sharing, self-sufficiency, and reducing wastefulness. The Open Design category
One could argue that a great product would be nothing without great packaging. In the same way that a logo conveys the essence of a company, packaging conveys the essence of a product. In order for a good to stand apart from the masses, it must be distinctive and visually
While physical products might be easier to grasp, both literally and figuratively, service design is equally important in improving existing infrastructure, methodology, and overall user experience across a broad range of sectors.

Perhaps our most unconventional and thought-provoking category, Speculative Concepts aims to push the boundaries of design past the point of what is currently possible - to use design as a means to explore and challenge, to hypothesize and critique, and, above all, to promote discourse. The field of speculative design
After an innovation surge in the 20th century, transportation design has, from a revolutionary standpoint, hit a relative plateau in recent decades. Designers are still looking for the next big leap forward- be it automation, hover technology, or the as yet untested Hyperloop. However, there is still much to improve
As the most successful designers will surely tell you, good design starts with good research. In order to understand the nature of the finished product, one must first understand the nature of the problem, and the various hindrances and limitations that could be encountered before arriving at the solution. Immersive
Every brand, every logo, every piece of art, is an attempt to communicate something complex in the most succinct, digestible way possible. A visual needs to make an immediate and enduring impact, which is why every aspect is meticulously crafted by the designer to allow the viewer to see beyond
