MDes’s project named the Best in Connecting at Interaction Awards 2021

Analyn L. Yap (Tata), our fresh graduate of the MDes Interaction Design programme won the Best in Category Award (Connecting) at the prestigious Interaction Awards 2021!

Tata’s submission was based on her capstone project "Bukas: Material Messages for Filipino Migrant Workers and Their Transnational Families" which looks into the everyday life and mental world of Filipino workers in Hong Kong. Supervised by Associate Professor Dr Huaxin Wei, the project is intended to address the need for self-identity formation and facilitate the expression of achievements and vulnerability, using a tangible, symbolic medium that carries material meanings for both the migrant worker and the families back home. 

Every entry at the Interaction Awards is considered and reviewed by industry leaders, hiring managers, and industry peers within the Awards jury and IxDA Peer Review Committee. All Winning and shortlisted entries are added to a living library created to help people discover the best work and uncover trends, insights, and talent that defines excellence, in addition to being featured on online media and as case studies that celebrate designers and their processes.
