TOP 10 EMERGING DESIGNERS TO WATCH IN 2015!

The DQ TOP TEN FORCES + FACES has named its list for 2015!



BY Tess Ritchie

June 2nd, 2015


Who is shaping the Australian design industry in 2015? Each year, we consider this question and nominate the most cutting-edge emerging creatives in Australia for this year.

It should come as no surprise to any of you that the meaning of the word “design” is changing. No longer a strict term with neat little categories, the boundaries of what design can and should be, has shifted greatly with waves and changes in what the market wants. Experience was a defining factor in selecting our best and brightest this year, where those pushing the boundaries are having a remarkable impact on human behavior, creating lasting and meaningful experiences for the world around them in every sector.

I am truly excited about this years list. Each and every top tenner here represents where the future of design should be looking to, and I cannot wait to see where they are taking the industry next.
