The IIID Award is run by IIID, the International Institute for Information Design. The awards given out recognise outstanding work done in the field of information design.
The IIID Award is split into 15 categories a project can be submitted under, among them are Healthcare, Financial, Wayshowing, Traffic and Public Transport, Products and Services, and Editorial. The final awards include one grand prix award, 15 category awards in gold, silver and bronze, an editor’s choice award, and an award for special recognition.
The Applied team submitted four projects, under the Wayshowing category, our entries included the work we did for the University of British Columbia, the city of Leeds and Legible London, and under the Traffic and Public Transport category, we entered the Heathrow Hub-Map. All four submissions were shortlisted and the final awards were announced just yesterday. Our work on the Heathrow Hub-Map received silver, Leeds Walk It and the University of British Columbia both received bronze, and special recognition was given to Legible London.
Our work on these projects will be in an international travelling exhibition and will be published in the IIID Award Book in the coming months.
