Celebrating good design: the 2017 Good Design Awards
The Good Design Awards are the most prestigious awards for design, creativity and innovation in Australia. Dating back to 1958, the awards endorse good design across a wide range of disciplines, increasingly including public service design and social innovation.
The 2017 Good Design Awards received over 400 entries in more than 30 categories. Only 244 entries were recognised as Good Design Selections, and entered as finalists for the coveted Australian Good Design Award. The 2017 Awards ceremony was held on 8 June in Sydney and was attended by the ThinkPlace partners.
Two ThinkPlace flagship projects were awarded Good Design Selection recognition and competed for the top prize. This was the first year we have shared our work with a judging panel of international design experts. Their recognition was a strong endorsement of our co-design approach with governments, industry bodies and community organisations.
