My Big Tomorrow by The Village of Useful and Newism for the University of Newcastle won Silver at the global 2015 User Experience Awards. The User Experience Awards event was held in New York City on 16 November 2015 and is “dedicated exclusively to showcasing the best in UX”. The Awards recognise the best in user experience design worldwide.
There were ten global User Experience Award winners in 2015, including My Big Tomorrow. The two minute film below was screened at the event to show our UX approach for the project and share some results from the first 100 days. Other 2015 winners include Google (bronze) and a favourite of ours, Hackaball (gold). Hackaball was created by London-based agency Made by Many to teach children the principles of computer programming through play.
The website is another great collaboration between The Village of Useful and Newism. Thank you to the project team and everyone who helped us create My Big Tomorrow – everything from the initial research, strategy and concept to the launch event one year later.
My Big Tomorrow is a special project for us, it’s been hugely satisfying to work on and we’re excited to have this work recognised globally as one of the world’s best user experience designs.
This global User Experience Award follows My Big Tomorrow also winning one of nine 2015 Australian Web Awards this month.
