After countless Tweets, Facebook posts, and who knows what else to promote the honored projects, the final votes for the 2016 Community Choice Prize have been tallied and all 15 Winners - 1 Grand Prize Winner and 14 Category Winners - have been set.
Before the big reveal, keep in mind that our Grand Prize Winner not only gets to bask in the glow of being the top overall vote getter - they also receive a free ticket, round trip airfare, and two nights accommodation to attend the 2016 Core77 Conference in Los Angeles, CA from September 29-30! Each Category Winner will receive one free ticket to the conference as well.
The 2016 Core77 Conference, Designing Here/Now, is a two day exploration and celebration of the technologies, ideas, and forces shaping contemporary design. Throughout the first day, attendees will engage with panels and enjoy provocative presentations by industry leading designers, scientists, entrepreneurs, and business leaders. The second day offers six professionally led design workshops, as well as four exclusive tours through downtown LA's most innovative design studios and public projects. Catered meals will be provided throughout both days, and each night will end with fabulous evening receptions. We hope to see all 15 Community Choice Prize Winners there!
miku - a breast pump system to empower the working mom by Sabina Pareja
This effective, convenient, and intuitive and breast pump system, designed by Sabina Pareja, received the most votes of any project honored in the 2016 Core77 Design Awards. Comprising a breast pump, milk bags, and a photo recognition app, miku "aims to fulfill modern mom's needs" by reducing the time and invasiveness of the pumping and storage process.
This Community Choice Grand Prize is Sabina's third (!) honor in the 2016 Core77 Design Awards, coming in alongside a Notable honor in both the Consumer Product and Strategy & Research categories. Congratulations Sabina!
