Ever wondered which countries produce the best designs and designers? Obviously you did, if you are a designer, you probably argued about it with your classmates in design school.

The World Design Rankings website, based on the results of the A’ Design competition of the previous five years, tries to give us some answers on this. Of course, this is a controversial topic and the contest results are not an objective answer to the question of which country has the best designers, but it does give us a chance to discover designers from various countries. So make sure you click on the countries’ names to view the work of awarded designers.

We have hand-picked a few for you to discover in this post.
