Design Museum: the shortlist for the 2018 Beazley Designs of the Year has just been revealed

What a portfolio! Now in its eleventh year, Beazley Designs of the Year is the Design Museum‘s annual celebration of the most original and exciting products, concepts and designers in the world today.

Every year since 2008 hundreds of design experts from around the world nominate the most innovative and thought-provoking designs from the past 12 months.

The international awards and exhibition showcase design projects from the previous 12 months, across six categories: Architecture, Digital, Fashion, Product, Graphics, and Transport.

Design experts, practitioners and academics from across the world are asked by the Design Museum to suggest potential projects, from which the museum has selected 87 for nomination to display in the exhibition.

A specially selected jury will choose a winner for each category and an overall winner – to be announced in November 2018.
