design studio rankings

how do really rank a design studio, business week magazine? IDSA idea awards? I.D. magazine awards? what are the key things that really measure these studios? quality, quantity, diversity?

General ranking of studios is a waste of time. It is always going to be subjective and therfore biased.

The only factual ranking you could ever do is based on sales revenues as they are hard numbers. -But what would that prove? Just because you have high revenue doesn’t mean you do great work and vice versa.
