The UX Design Awards honor the huge impact of accomplished experience design on shaping a positive living environment for all.

Design is about improving people’s lives. We believe only design that focuses on people has the potential to improve the world in a sustainable. To create meaningful solutions to people’s needs, designers need to understand their goals, desires, and emotions.

The UX Design Awards reflect the impact of user and customer experience design on shaping a positive living environment for everybody. Originating in 2008 as a show for good usability, we established the Awards in 2015. Ever since, the UX Design Awards have been honoring exceptional experience design across the world.

The competition takes place twice per year. It is open to products, services, environments, concepts and visions; as well as to master's and bachelor's projects from around the world.

UX Design Awards Deep Dive: Award Winners
On June 15, Leopold Hoepner and Antoine Nivet of why do birds will guide us through the #UXDA22 product award winning project "MusiCurve".

MusiCurve is an easy-to-use software tool that allows users to change the intensity of a piece of music and adapt it to the dramaturgy of a film. The target audience is marketing, HR, social media managers and designers in companies with little or no knowledge of music software and teams that don't have the budget to hire a sound studio to score a film production.

UXDA jury member Tapani Jokinen on the project: "The concept of MusiCurve is brilliantly simple and easy to use. It requires no expertise and allows anyone to create a video with a perfectly matching sound in a self-explanatory way. The solution meets the needs of the target audience and significantly reduces the effort required for an elaborate and complex process."

Deep Dive: Award Winners presents outstanding projects from the professional award categories of Product and Concept. The format - live interactive presentations followed by a Q&A session - offers behind-the-scenes insights into award-winning projects and enables exchange with successful experience design teams.

UX Design Awards Talent Track: Award Winners
In his presentation, designer Tien Han Huang will show us how he created his award-winning project „Smart tights for stroke patients“.

Nxti is developed for stroke patients suffering from hemiplegia. The textile muscle supports the muscles of the lower limb so that patients can stay in the correct position and rehabilitate themselves. Thanks to a variety of sensors in the clothing, patients can also monitor the condition of their muscles. The vibration motors will vibrate if the user puts his body weight on one side for too long and should show the user which muscles to activate accordingly.

UXDA-Jury member Tapani Jokinen on the project:

“Nxti is a great example of how new technologies can empower patients to self-rehabilitate at home. The combination of body movement sensors, vibrations for feedback and an easy-to-use mobile app provide intuitive user guidance. The concept enables patients to self-improve and to better adapt to workout programs. All important parts are removable and replaceable, prolonging the life cycle of the device.”

The physical component of the system "Cara" indicates the location of the sound with the help of light. Connected to the app, it adds subtitles and creates a summary for the whole team at the end of a meeting. The second component, "Caro", is a compact, customizable pod that users can carry with them to receive sound location, subtitles, alerts and emergency messages.

UXDA Jury member Markus Turber on the project:
»UMI allows deaf and hard-of-hearing people to take part in group meetings in a natural and simple way.

Deep Dive Award Winners | Ziina Digital Wallet for MENA
In his presentation Head of Design Anton Badashov walks us through the project “Ziina Digital Wallet for MENA”, an award winner in the Product category in the 2021 UX Design Awards.

[ Please register for this Deep Dive here on Zoom ]

Award Winner Ziina is a new digital wallet for the Middle East. The product enables instant online payments for people in the region, including people previously unbanked. The app is built for network effect, allowing users to send money and invite friends easily. Ziina is meant to be social, unlocking its full potential when a person's close circle of friends joins in.

Our juror Ole Heydekamp describes what the jury found remarkable about the project:
“The digital Wallet Ziina addresses a relevant challenge by providing a payment solution for a region where most people are still unbanked. The unique and appealing design combines traditional elements with a modern and intuitive UI language. Small and well-thought-out solutions make sending and receiving money a most enjoyable experience. Ziina uses UX to break existing societal taboos by enabling conversations about money, a topic that traditionally tends to be avoided – it is therefore a driver of positive change.”

The Deep Dive will be moderated by Ake Rudolf, Head of Strategy / Award Director at the International Design Center Berlin (IDZ).
