Fast Company:

2021 Innovation by Design Awards


We are excited to announce that our projects with Ford Mobility, Gatorade, and Upstream USA have all been recognized across multiple categories at the 2021 Fast Company Innovation by Design Awards!

2021 has been a challenging year, between the relentless march of COVID-19, geopolitical unrest, and disasters wrought by a warming planet. Designers saw the tragedy and chaos and responded with thoughtful solutions. At-home health products were expedited in the face of the pandemic. Packaging, clothing, and transit systems prioritized accessibility. And old buildings and materials got surprising second lives as the climate crisis upended, well, everything. This year’s Innovation by Design Awards have 599 honorees in 37 categories, representing thousands of people, nonprofits, and companies actively working to make the world a safer, fairer, more beautiful place.
Ford Last Mile Delivery was named Honorable Mention in both the Mobility and Sustainability categories.
Upstream USA’s Birth Control Information Toolkit was named Finalist in the Health category and received an Honorable Mention in the Social Good category.
Gatorade Gx Sweat Patch and App was a Finalist in Best Design North America, General Excellence, and Sports and Recreation categories, and an Honorable Mention in the Products category.
