B!G Winners

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

Winners of the highest calibre! This week our main lady, our head honcho, the woman behind the phenomena that is The B!G Idea was undeniably proud to collect the trophy of all trophies, the Grand Prix IDI Design Award. The Grand Prix is the ultimate prize for the best overall design of all 37 categories. It is a very special one to win as it truly clinches the concept that The B!G Idea is worthy, not only to us working on it, but to all the movers and shakers in the design industry aswell.

“An outstanding initiative, superbly branded to engage its audience, backed by a visionary and dedicated team of design professionals and educators. ”

Judges Thoughts

Despite the challenges of another Covid-impacted year, the creativity and quality at this year’s awards were of the highest calibre.

The B!G Idea not only scooped the overall B!G award but we also managed to get our hands on the Design Education and Research Award. This category recognises the role that design plays in our changed world and recognises that design alone isn’t just a remedy for current and future situations but that it is actually instrumental in shaping a better future for us all. The judges were looking for entries that encourage engagement with the real world, demonstrating collaboration and outreach with industry, culture and society, raising awareness of the value of design.
I mean really! This category was simply made for The B!G Idea. We tick every single box and are so proud to do so.

Creative Thinking is the future. It is the answer to Climate Change, Racism, Ageing Population, Housing Crisis, Pandemics, Mental Health, Poverty, Inequality, pretty much every challenge the world is facing right now.
It is the ethos of our beliefs and it is incredible that after just one year in operation, we have so many other believers aswell.

Winning at the IDI Awards was very special. We are incredibly grateful to the judges, mentors, teachers, partners and, of course, students for believing in The B!G Idea and for helping us to push this incredible creative motion forward. Want to get involved here is your invitation!
