Seventy-six nominations listed for Designs of the Year 2014
Posted: Wednesday, February 12, 2014 |

Nominations were announced for Designs of the Year 2014 -- the event where work from the "cool kids" in the big world of design are sure to be found. Designs of the Year celebrates the most innovative global design in Architecture, Digital, Fashion, Furniture, Graphic, Product and Transport.

A total of 76 nominees include international stars, crowd-funded start-ups, and student projects. A winner in each category and one overall winner will be announced later this year.

All nominations will be exhibited at London's Design Museum starting March 26 - Aug. 25, 2014. The public can participate and pick their favorite designs with the Visitor Vote (for Museum goers) and the new Social Vote for the Museum's Facebook and Twitter followers.

Keep reading to find photos of this year's designs and the full list of nominations.
