Veryday honoured with iF DESIGN AWARD 2017
Published: 6 Feb 2017
We are proud to announce that Veryday is a winner of this year’s iF DESIGN AWARD in the Service Design category for our social innovation project for Singapore Government.
Together with the DesignSingapore Council (Dsg) and the National Council of Social Service (NCSS), our design team embarked on an intriguing and rewarding journey to innovate and reimagine social services in the Southeast Asian country – ultimately improving quality of life for people with disabilities. By using an inclusive design approach, we’ve gained crucial insights of how people with disabilities live, work and interact with the society and how they experience current social services.
I enjoyed the highly collaborative and design-driven process of working closely with Veryday and our government agency partner, NCSS. The team at Veryday was consultative, sensitive and empathetic in terms of approach to the complex and sensitive topic at hand.

The pioneering project convinced the 58-member jury of independent experts from all over the world. The competition was intense: over 5,500 entries were submitted from 59 countries in hopes of receiving the seal of quality.
It is a great honour for us to receive the iF DESIGN AWARD – one of the most prestigious design prizes in the world.
