BDES Student Wins First Place at the Boundless 2019 Competition
Thu, June 13, 2019
Anushka Jadwani, a student the Bachelor of Design, has won first place in the Boundless 2019 Competition, the 7th annual Enabling Change competition.
For this year's competition, DX invited students studying in all design disciplines to submit proposals that develop creative solutions focussed on the accessible navigation of public spaces. Anushka's winning project was called “Connexus”, and the concept was a set of wearable bracelets for young children or older adults with cognitive impairments. The bracelets helped ensure caregivers were able to monitor the safety and location of their ward and help provide directional support and a feeling of security for the wearer.
Anushka and her team came up with the initial concept during a class project earlier this term, where BDES students hosted an ideation session with Fontys students in March. Anushka then refined this concept as part of her class project, submitted it to the competition and won! She was awarded $1500, and her work will be on display at the Design Exchange.
Congratulations, Anushka, on this stellar achievement.
