The winners of international design awards ‘2022 Australian Good Design Awards’ were announced on Friday 16th September. The Good Design Awards are the highest honour for design and innovation in the country and reward projects across 11 design disciplines covering more than 30 categories and sub-categories.
Payapps received a prestigious Good Design Award Winner Accolade in the Digital Design category, in recognition of outstanding design and innovation.
With a proud history dating back to 1958, the annual Awards celebrate the best new products and services on the international market, excellence in architectural design, engineering, fashion, digital and communication design, and reward new and emerging areas of design including design strategy, social impact design, design research and up-and-coming design talent in the next-gen category.
The 2022 Good Design Awards attracted high-quality design projects from around the world. These innovative projects were evaluated by more than 70 international Jurors, including designers, engineers, architects and thought leaders. Each entry was evaluated according to a strictest of design evaluation criteria which includes Good Design, Design Innovation and Design Impact.
Projects recognised with an Australian Good Design Award demonstrate excellence in professional design and highlight the impact a design-led approach has on business success and social and environmental outcomes.
The Good Design Awards Jury commented: “A much needed edition to the construction industry that makes everybody’s lives hassle free. A streamlined approach to the submission and approval of payment between builders and subcontractors. An intuitive solution to a commonly loathed issue. Well done to everybody involved with the design and execution of this project.”
“It’s an honour for Payapps to be recognised against a number of high-calibre entrants for this year’s awards”, says Tony Simonsen, COO of Payapps.
“The Digital Design Jury were looking for solutions where a holistic design approach had been considered as well as projects that improve the quality of life for people and contribute to better economic, social, and environmental outcomes. I’m hugely proud that Payapps has been recognised for doing just that! We’re helping an increasing number of companies improve their back-office efficiencies and productivity, making it easier for them to better manage time-consuming and costly payment claim processes across the construction sector where the timing of payments have arguably never been more important.”
Dr. Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia and Chair of the Australian Good Design Awards said: “To be recognised with an Australian Good Design Award is a significant achievement, given the incredibly high standard of projects submitted in this year’s Awards. The Good Design Award is a valuable independent endorsement of professional design quality. It tells the world this project not only represents design excellence, but it also surpasses the criteria for design innovation and design impact.”
“We know that good design, when used effectively, can improve our quality of life and make the world around us better, safer, more efficient and more beautiful. It is clear from this year’s winning projects that investment in professional design delivers real impact – be it at a commercial, environmental or societal level. As our world transitions to a less-carbon intensive future, a design-led approach to solving problems and delivering meaningful impact is going to become more critical,” Dr. Gien went on to say.
“The Good Design Awards recognise and celebrate the transformative power of design thinking to find innovative, customer-centric solutions to local and global challenges and this year’s Award-winning projects reflect just that. My sincere congratulations to all the designers, engineers, architects and innovators recognised in this year’s Awards – you deserve to be celebrated at the highest level,” Dr. Gien concluded.
