platFORM awarded a notable from Core77 Design Awards
platFORM has been awarded a Professional Notable from the 2015 Core77 Design Awards for Design Education Initiatives.
platFORM is a collaborative product development class for design and business students from Emily Carr and SFU. The students work in trans-disciplinary teams to develop products, services, and systems that address contemporary social, economic, and environmental issues. The project was developed by Andreas Eiken (MDes ’15) and MDes Candidate, Maia Rowan, in collaboration with Lisa Papania and Sarah Lubik from SFU Beedie.
platFORM is a collaboration between the Faculty of Design and Dynamic Media, the Social + Interactive Media (SIM) Centre at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, and the Beedie School of Business at Simon Fraser University. It is also a partner course at CityStudio, supported by Leslie Ng from the City of Vancouver.
