Master in Interaction Design Students Shortlisted for RSA Student Design Awards 2017–18
Two students in Domus Academy’s Master in Interaction Design program have been shortlisted for the 2017–18 RSA Student Design Awards. Andrea Bottia and Shreepriya answered the brief for a project called “Fair Finance for All” a category within the RSA Student Design Awards that was sponsored by the UK bank NatWest. Thanks to their excellent work, the students will have the opportunity to participate in a Skype interview with the selection committee.
Students were challenged to design or redesign a way for people who are financially excluded to be better served by banks and other money management services. Andrea and Shreepriya designed the Well Income Service, a service that would offer digital financial education and access to refugees in Europe throughout various stages of their journey, according to their changing needs.
The RSA Student Design Awards is a global curriculum and annual competition for higher education students and recent graduates run by the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce).
Each year, the Awards challenge emerging designers to tackle a range of design briefs focused on pressing social, environmental and economic issues. Winners are rewarded with cash prizes, paid industry placements, RSA fellowships, and a range of other benefits to kick-start their careers.
Good luck guys!
