The Spark Awards is an annual international multi-disciplinary design competition that fields entries across Industrial, Product, Architecture, Interior, and Graphic Design. I took part in this years judging panel and we looked at a variety of entries across all design disciplines -many well designed objects as well as ideas. I really appreciate good design and the spark awards really highlight some of the standouts. I was also struck by a great observation that my colleague industrial designer Rob Curedale made: “We don’t need more stuff in the world, we need solutions that make a qualitative difference” – I couldn’t agree more. Below are some of my personal favorites. -Bryant.
