iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2020

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2020

Even as we look towards the post-Covid era, it is clear that online modes of education are here to stay. However, this has opened up a new form of inequity, the 'digital divide', as students from homes with adequate access to information technology gain an advantage over classmates who lack such access. This innovative solution is designed to bridge that gap. Cellular is an interactive service that allows socially disadvantaged students to quickly and wirelessly download educational data onto a mobile device.

This interactive data-sharing station is an expression of social responsibility, providing donated data to disadvantaged students to help them keep up with the rapid transition to digital and online modes of learning. The station could be better in terms of design, but the idea is highly innovative and addresses the 1st, 4th, and 7th of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Jury Statement
I’m so happy that ‘Cellular’ has won an iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD. I hope that this idea will contribute to a society struggling with Covid-19, and inspire fellow designers. Thank you.
