WDR – World Design Rankings has announced the updated design rankings of countries based on the number of design awards won at international juried design competitions and awards. United States ranked as number 1 among the 97 represented countries, followed by China, Italy, Hong Kong, Great Britain, Turkey, Australia, Portugal and Taiwan which took the top positions in 2017.

Nine new countries are included in the 2017 rankings: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Nicaragua, Ecuador, Luxembourg, Kenya, Tanzania, Liechtenstein, Armenia, Cameroon and Swaziland. Top 10 changed significantly this year as the rankings are now based on Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Iron awards won by designers from represented countries instead of aggregate number of awards won by each country
