It is our great honor and pleasure to share with you all that we have been recognized by this year’s Core77 Awards! Recognizing excellence in all areas of design enterprise, the Core77 Design Awards celebrates the richness of the design profession and its practitioners. For their inaugural year, they are presenting 15 categories of entry, providing designers a unique opportunity to communicate the intent, rigor and passion behind their efforts. For this first program, dedicated jury teams based around the globe gathered in eight countries to judge 15 categories of design practice.
Entering in the Design Education Initiative, here’s what the judges had to say about our entry:
Design for America is notable as a well-thought out program that engages interdisciplinary college youth to bring their ideas into impactful outcomes outside of academic time frames. The ambition of the name indicates the scale of impact for this model once it has spread beyond its Northwestern University incubator.
