9 Inspiring International Design Projects from Argentina, Brazil

In celebration of “Destination Design,” the underlying theme of the upcoming issue of HOW magazine (coming in 2015), we’ll be posting a series of articles online that spotlight international design 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.

The “Destination Design” issue of HOW magazine will also house the 300+ 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. Plus, one winner will receive an all expense paid trip to HOW Design Live 2015.

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. These designers work at both design firms or as freelancers.
