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