This year’s crop of IxD projects pushes the boundaries of IxD: they approach contemporary societal issues way beyond the meeting point of technology and users. They all focus on people, complex interpersonal situations and sensitive topics, not on trivial interfaces, pixel arrangements or superficial technolust. These designers are very talented and articulate, I’m very confident each of them will have a bright professional future. UID and Umeå will miss you. I will miss you.

Congratulations again, and enjoy a well deserved relaxing summer.
