Design Is


2015 – The task of reviewing each design story takes a lot of thought and an intuitive sense of design. This year, Keith Rushbrook, one of two Partner’s at II BY IV DESIGN, will be one of the Design Is… 2015 Global Award Judges.

Design can change the world. As a member of the architecture and design community, you are the visionary—the creative problem solver who is constantly redefining the way we work, play, and organize our lives. The Design Is…Award recognizes your amazing work, and it celebrates the design story behind each and every project. The reason is simple: if we are going to improve life for the better, we have to honor the people who are rethinking the very notion of what design is…



Market winners represent the highest caliber of work within an industry segment across the globe. These winning projects will be automatically entered into the Global Awards Program and People’s Choice Voting.
