As well as pinpointing the best new talent worldwide, this visually stunning survey provides a showcase of cutting-edge imagery for a student and professional audience.

Thanks to affordable technology and up-for-it, media-savvy clients, a huge number of designers set themselves up in their own studios, straight from college. The kind of work that results is often fast, furious, rule-breaking, and inspirational. These designers are also characterized by their love of their locale, along with nomadic tendencies and a “small is beautiful” attitude. Full biographies and contact details are provided for each designer/studio.
