  • The Design Museum’s Beazley Designs of the Year have been announced with entries from across the world including design problems and solutions ranging from architecture, digital design, fashion, transport, product design and graphic design. The entries are on display at the museum until February but the website might also be useful as a resource to develop student understanding of users and design problems/contexts.
  • The Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) gives annual awards for design excellence and innovation in speciality fabric applications and technical textiles in categories ranging from fabric structures and architecture, canopies, marine fabrication, and geosynthetics. The website may be useful to get students thinking about textiles in a less stereotyped way. Each entry includes information on the design problem and client making it useful as a prompt for thinking about designing for real contexts. Some of the images would also be useful to use as part of a display.
