Co.Design is now accepting entries for the seventh annual Innovation By Design Awards. Innovation by Design is the only competition to honor creative work at the intersection of design, business, and innovation. The competition runs until May 10, 2018.
Winners, finalists, and honorable mentions are featured online and in the October issue of Fast Company magazine. Winners will also be celebrated at Fast Company‘s Innovation Festival in the fall. For the first time ever, the magazine will also name a design company of the year.
There are 15 categories this year: one for outstanding workplace design, and another for design from the past 30 years that has stood the test of time. Entries will be judged on their functionality, originality, beauty, sustainability, user insight, cultural impact, and business impact. The roster of judges includes designers and design-minded executives from companies and organizations such as Airbnb, Nike, Planned Parenthood, Pinterest, Walmart, InVision, Gensler, and more.
