Domus Academy is delighted to announce that its former student Noel Braganza won the prestigious Red Dot Award. Graduated in the Master’s in Interaction Design in 2013, Noel is today the co-founder and Head of product of MuchSkills, the company that has been recognized with this award in Brands & Communication Design 2020 in the category of User Experience and Interface Design.
MuchSkills is a technology startup founded in 2019 by Up Strategy Lab, a design and strategy consulting firm based out of Gothenburg, Sweden, with clients located across the globe. The product, launched in May 2020, is a modern skills visualization software designed to enable employees and organizations to better communicate and manage their strengths and skills and skill sets. Since its launch, MuchSkills has seen steady and organic growth with its users touching close to 1,000 in a little over two months. MuchSkills is the future team skills database and an individual’s personal strengths growth tracker.
The Red Dot Award is an acclaimed international design competition for product design, communication design and design concepts, considered to be the seal of quality for good design. With more than 18,000 entries, it is one of the world’s largest and most prestigious design competitions. In 2020, over 6,900 designers and companies submitted their designs online and were evaluated by a jury composed of international experts across industries.
Noel Braganza said: “We submitted MuchSkills not only because of its thoughtful design but also because of its intuitive user experience that makes otherwise complex data accessible to everyone. While platforms like LinkedIn and CVs focus on an individual’s employment history, MuchSkills allows people to visually communicate their current strengths and also their future skills goals.”
Congratulations Noel, Domus Academy is really proud of you.
