The Global Public Interest Design 100

Launch Infographic

This global list was compiled by Public Interest Design based on nominations solicited from a range of leaders across the design field and beyond. Lists of this sort, of course, are inherently imperfect and subjective as well as far more representative than comprehensive. But they are also useful in shining a light on unseen leaders and unheard voices. Between this list of 146 and our inaugural list of 150, nearly 300 people have been recognized—and we are certain there are many more working hard each day to make the world a better place, by design. 

The research and work was made possible by the generous sponsorship of Autodesk, a world leader in 3D design, engineering, and entertainment software and services—helping people everywhere imagine, design, and create a better world.
