At Surface, we see design as a catalyst for creative journeys. The Surface Travel Awards will anoint the most thoughtfully conceived new projects at the intersection of travel and design: hotels, restaurants, public spaces, retail outlets, cultural institutions, airports, travel products, luggage, branding, and more.

Produced in collaboration with Peter Frank, former director of editorial product development at Travel + Leisure, the program aims to raise global awareness of the crucial benefit of design as a means to improve our lives as we explore the world around us. Held in conjunction with the release of Surface’s Travel Issue, the awards ceremony will take place in October 2017.
