Design 1st is an annual sponsor of ACIDO’s ‘Rocket’ Industrial Design Competition.
The event features the work of Ontario’s top industrial design graduates and is a good way to get a pulse on how new technology is impacting hardware.
For 2020, Design 1st sponsored the ACIDO “Market Research Award” recognizing the top project that uncovered user needs, behaviors, and feedback through primary and secondary research.
This year's award was won by SingYu Lam from OCAD for his work on FRAME: Encouraging Death Reflection Through a Digital And Physical Experience. Project video below:
