Audi Icons Contest

Tweet to win a one-off design object made by one of our featured Icons


By now, you’ll hopefully have read one or more of the profiles we’ve been producing as part of the Audi Icons series, highlighting the work of emerging creative figures like Leon Ransmeier and Rafael de Cardenas. Though the individuals we’re profiling work across a spectrum of disciplines, they all possess a similar dedication to their distinct vision and craft—whether it be paper art or industrial design.

True to one of our mantras, “Always More,” Cool Hunting is curious about other such unique creators that we may not already know about. Readers can either tweet the name of the person they think deserves Icon status with a link to examples of their work (be sure to include @CoolHunting with the hash-tag #A7Icon), or pay a visit to our Facebook page and leave a comment with a name and link—and yes, you can submit yourself if you’re feeling confident.

Readers have until mid-June to submit suggestions, and the most compelling entry will win a one-off item currently being produced by one of the Icons. We’ll reveal the designer and their item at a later date, but for now, start letting us know who you think is Icon material!

See the full terms and conditions below.
