AHO did it again - we're among the world's best design schools!

AHO is number 13 in the prestigious Red Dot Design Ranking for 2018. One up from 2017!  

Red Dot Design annually presents the top 15 educational design institutions in Europe and North and South America, based on achievements over the last five years. 

Rector Ole Gustavsen is delighted with the result.

“We are very proud to be in the top 15 list again for 2018. As the Red Dot ranking is becoming more well known, the competition is getting harder. This is a well deserved recognition of the great achievements and hard work of our fellow students and all the faculty at The Institute of Design – congratulations and well done!".

Umeå University, Savannah College of Art and Design og ENSCI – Les Ateliers i Paris are top three in this year's competition. 

Red Dot Design Award is considered one of the world's most prestigious design competitions. The competition was established in 1955 and is organized by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen, Germany.

Red Dot Design has, since 2011, awarded the best educational institutions based on cumulative achievements in the Red Dot Award: Design Concept over the past 5 years.
