Author: Slanted editors

Under the motto “Ars Futura Cultura”, i.e. “Art for the Culture of the Future”, the A’ Design Award took place and honored 2437 winners from 106 countries in 98 different design disciplines. “We believe that the future is shaped by art, design and technology, so good design is needed for a better future,” said the initiators.
