9 Inspiring International Design Projects from Argentina, Brazil

In celebration of international design, we’ll be posting a series of articles online that spotlight projects from various countries around the globe. These projects show that good design needs no translation and that the beauty of a well-crafted project can be appreciated in any hemisphere.

Each year, our international issue of HOW magazine houses the winners from the International Design Awards—a truly unique competition. If you’ve never entered this design awards, this is the year to truly be seen by peers and clients alike who are spanning the globe.

Over the years, I’ve been wowed by the work coming out of South America. The vibrancy and culture that these international design projects exude is infectious, inspiring and too gorgeous not to share. I knew right where to start with this quest: Brazil and Argentina.

Check out the nine stunning design projects below produced by creatives in both Argentina and Brazil in past years. These designers work at both design firms or as freelancers.
