Why the Awards?
When we launched Design Anthology, we recognised that the market for design magazines was saturated, but we saw a need for something new, original and with integrity. In the past four years we have used these principles to garner the respect of the design industry around the region.
Similarly, we realise that there are already other awards programmes, but we see the need to award originality and substance. As an established authority on design in Asia, we are in a unique position to be able to shine a light on deserving talents in a much more meaningful way beyond the magazine.
