One more year, Elisava's ei! Awards have recognized the best Final Degree Projects of the recent graduates of the School. The ei! Awards distinguish the final works of the students of our University Degrees taking into account criteria of conceptualization, innovation, functionality, development and methodology, as well as its social, economic and environmental viability.
The Jury of the 9th edition of the ei! Awards wanted to highlight the great merit and level of all the proposals in a context marked by the health situation generated by the COVID-19. This same context has motivated that the prizes have been delivered in a ceremony without public last October 2 (and not in the framework of the Graduation Ceremony, as usually).
The Jury of this edition has been formed by:
- Guillem Camprodon. Interaction Designer. Research Lead. Fab Lab//IAAC
- Mariona Palau. Designer
- Albert Folch. Creative Director & Founder Folch Studio
- Helena Puig. Interior designer. PPT Interiorismo
- Javier Peña. General Director of Elisava
The members of the Jury have selected one winner for each category: Human, Material, Society, Information and Technology, and three Special Mentions. They are the following:
Ariadna Sala (Degree in Design. Mention of Product)
Tutor: Danae Esparza
For creating a tool that makes therapy with victims of sexual abuse more palatable. The Jury highlights the invention of a purposefully designed iconographic system that improves people's lives. Thus, they value this work very positively because it makes the problem visible and shows how design can help other disciplines.
