With submissions for its 2017—2018 edition still open, you have until 28 February to register your work and be in with a chance of being crowned a winner at the prestigious Lake Como bash in April. A’ Design Award has enjoyed a wealth of inspiring submissions, and crowned so many deserved winners—do you have what it takes to stand toe to toe with creatives like these?
