On Friday night in Seattle, surrounded by the Silicon Valley design elite, we were incredibly surprised, excited and honoured to win the Future Voice category at the IxDA Awards. More proof that Pigzbe does it with <style>.
Founded by the Interaction Design Association (IxDA) in 2010, the annual IxDA awards celebrate the best of the best in user design. Attendees this year included John Maeda, Nelly Ben Hayoun, and top design leads from companies like Facebook, Adobe, Instagram and more. Each year the awards showcase amazing projects that demonstrate how interaction design impacts and improves human lives. And we made the cut!
The “Future Voice” award, presented to us by Instagram’s brilliant, brilliant Sadia Harper, recognizes ‘work that demonstrates the profound potential of Interaction Design, which at its heart deals with the dynamics and depth of human relationship and conversation. Recognizing its recipient celebrates evidence of what Interaction Design could choose to become.’
The award follows hot on the heels of our successful Kickstarter campaign (over $100,000 raised!) and our partnership with Wirex, which means that you can now spend our family-friendly cryptocurrency anywhere Visa is accepted. We hope you can see that we’re hard at work delivering on our promise to change how children learn to earn, save and spend in a digital world.
We’re crossing our fingers that this is just the first of many milestones we reach in 2019 :)
