GOOD DESIGN AWARDS 2014

WELCOME TO GOOD DESIGN Achieving good design isn’t always an easy journey. It takes time, passion and unwavering commitment. It demands great attention to detail and creative flexibility. It’s about being innovative in solution and smart in simplicity. It requires courage, and it commands respect.

On behalf of Good Design Australia, I want to thank all the designers and companies featured in this Yearbook for their support of the work we do in promoting excellence in design and innovation. You continue to be the driving force behind the passion we have for good design.

In a crowded marketplace, good design gives companies their competitive edge. It separates the extraordinary from the ordinary, excellence from mediocrity and brilliant from boring. Ultimately, good design is about making a difference - on functional, economical, aesthetic and sustainable levels. For the individual and society as a whole. At Good Design Australia we understand, support and celebrate this pursuit. We recognise top quality amongst the best products and services on Australian and global markets, critiqued against international benchmarks. Our Jury brings together expert design leaders from a diverse array of fields and countries. After more than 50 years, the Good Design Awards program is amongst the most trusted and recognised accolades of its kind in the world.

Novel Computer Game Controller Jury Comments “This highly innovative design provides a solution that addresses the therapy needs of children with Cerebral Palsy in a way not seen before. The Judges were impressed by the way the controller aids in developing motor skills for children with Cerebral Palsy in both clinical and home environments through the use of computer games. The Judges immediately recognised the potential to add a new dimension in clinical therapy for professionals working in this space through the engagement with patients in a fun and non-threatening way.�

Hills Young Australian Design Award of the Year Max Hughes University of South Australia A problem with commercially available gaming controllers is that they are designed specifically for use by able-bodied children. These controllers require fine motor control and coordination in order to use them, restricting their suitability for children with reduced dexterity and sensory sensitivity. This design features a gaming controller system which captures the interest and motivation of children with Cerebral Palsy who have a tactile sensory deficiency in their hands. Using the controller with two hands may mean their sense of touch improves through a more immersive form of engagement compared to physical therapy, by providing vibration feedback to their hands.

MARS - Modular Artificial Reef Structure Hills Young Australian Design Award - Sustainability Alex Goad Monash University Jury Comments “MARS impressed the Judges through its use of materials and installation modularity to provide a way to combat the current and ever increasing damage to reef ecosystems. The consideration given in the research and investigation phase to create a solution from slip ceramic, a material closely mimicking the natural sub-structure for reef habitat, was noted as being an innovative feature of the design.�

Modern human civilisation is putting increased pressure on our oceans. Climate-change, pollution, commercial fishing, water-runoff and dredging are destroying our reef ecosystems. The Modular Artificial Reef Structure (MARS) helps mitigate these effects by creating permanent habitats that encourages the colonisation of marine flora and fauna. The design acts as a modular skeleton that can mimic the height, width and complexity of natural reef environments. This encourages colonising organisms to prosper more effectively, quickly leading to an increase in marine biomass. MARS can be used to combat coral bleaching, transplant corals, regenerate damaged habitat and to create brand new ecosystems altogether.

Jury Comments “This innovative solution incorporates new ways of addressing the needs of kayak fishermen through the combination of materials and process not currently used in this product space. The Judges were impressed by the innovative design features including a clever octagonal joiner which allows for easy attachment and rotational positioning of the user’s accessories. The product design also introduced an innovative business model which sees the end user being able to buy and download 3D printable files of Kamodo accessories online for printing at home on demand. The Judges commented the exceptional quality and attention to detail of the prototype that had been produced and presented.”

Kamodo Fishing Kayak Hills Young Australian Design Award - Innovation Andrew Godin Monash University Kayak fishing is an exciting sport fuelled by the pursuit of adventure, adrenaline and exercise together with the affordability and convenience of car rooftop transport. There are however a range of ergonomic, packaging and functional limitations that detract from its enjoyment and appeal such as weight, awkward ergonomics and lack of modularity. Kamodo is a performance product for the avid kayak fisherman. Through prototyping and rigorous ergonomic development this kayak has been designed from the ground up with fishing in mind. Kamodo utilizes modern materials, technology and innovative features to deliver a new experience to the sport of kayak fishing.

Freeflow Train Carriage Robert White University of South Australia Trains funnel passengers on board by few sets of doors through the ticketing process and eventually to their seats. At peak times, trains can become very congested, especially in the vestibule (entryway) as passengers tend to linger instead of moving into the carriage, exacerbating the problem as more passengers try to board. This increases the time of an average stop, and makes the train run late. The Freeflow Train Carriage has been specifically designed to combat this problem by researching human movement and gestalt theory to design an interior that intuitively guides passengers into the carriage and discourages them from lingering in the entryway.

swinburnE sCHool oF DEsign Swinburne’s School of Design gives students the opportunity to explore the fundamentals of best-design practice, while learning from industry experts. Our courses encourage specialisation, cross-disciplinary collaboration and international study experiences in preparation for careers likely to involve global teams and projects.

state of the art facilities Swinburne opened its brand new Advanced Manufacturing Design Centre (AMDC) building earlier this year, which is home to the university’s School of Design. The 10-storey building has been designed to encourage joint-disciplinary research and foster design-inspired thinking. With a striking façade and an interior that encourages natural light, the AMDC has an array of open spaces, including research laboratories, an auditorium, student hubs and sky gardens.

A CommunitY CrEAtED For ADvAnCing HumAn-CEntrED DEsign rEsEArCH The Centre for Design Innovation provides access to a strong, client-focused research capability. The Centre enables design researchers and students to come together and collaborate, by building on existing strengths at Swinburne University of Technology. This approach fosters skills in design innovation research, which enables postgraduates to develop high-end frontier capabilities for transforming often deviously complex problems into valued design innovations.

Prosthetic Foot and Cosmetic Cover Designed by Jonathan Yap, Product Design Engineering (Hons) 2013

The Centre for Design Innovation exists to nurture and build PhD design students from around the globe, from a range of different design disciplines. For many who come through the design honours pathway powered by the Swinburne Design Factory, the Centre for Design Innovation provides that next step into frontier and advanced design knowledge development, that can graduate leaders in strategic and meaningful design innovation.

GoinG beyond visual appeal While a beautifully designed object can look impressive, it might not necessarily provide an organisation or individual with any sort of value. Swinburne’s Centre for Design Innovation is challenging this problem, by encouraging its students to focus on designing for the client, and how their designs can have a lasting impact on society.

Product Design Engineering PhD student and 2014 Young Design Award finalist Jonathan Yap’s design of the Prosthetic Foot and Cosmetic Cover is just one example of the revolutionary work being undertaken at the Centre for Design Innovation. The prosthetic foot, which can be produced for around $15 from a 3D printer, is not just giving children in war-torn countries access to low cost aid, but also a better quality of life. The single-form design enables children to walk more comfortably, while also reducing the risk of further disability.

international research communities Being part of Swinburne’s Centre for Design Innovation connects you with a global research network, growing around the world as developed economies look to the fresh approach that advanced design insight brings to tackle big challenges, or stimulate new impact opportunities. If you want to be part of the next generation of innovative designers, who challenge the unthinkable or tame the most wicked of issues, then join the research community of Swinburne’s Centre for Design Innovation.

Anchor’s LIGHTPROOF Milk Bottle Range Fonterra Pact Group Designed in New Zealand Fonterra’s Anchor brand, Inpact Innovation and Alto collaborated to design, test and manufacture Anchor’s revolutionary LIGHT PROOF™ bottle. The LIGHT PROOF™ bottle preserves the nutritional value, freshness and taste of milk. Research, prototypes and testing spanned many countries (South Africa, USA, Italy, Spain, Portugal, UK, Australia, NZ) and involved numerous experts and taste tests. The key to the innovation was to apply triple layer technology to Fresh Milk/Cream, ensuring the HDPE bottle was still light weight and recyclable. The inside and outside layers are opaque with the middle layer acting as the game changer to traditional milk packaging. The middle layer is black and blocks out 100% of light.

Silver Fern Farms Packaging Designworks Silver Fern Farms Designed in New Zealand In a typically bland meat category with no discernable difference between brands, we decided to re-invent the way beef is sold to consumers in the supermarket through new packaging formats that would break the category conventions and help communicate a new premium meat sector. The concept was ‘timeless heritage’, inspiring a modern imagining of a time when the butcher was the premiere provider of quality red meat. The company’s new eating quality standards system reinforced the brand’s claim to its own tier of quality. The language introduces a new confidence to the offering, with bold typography and punchy headers.
