The finalists for Fast Company’s prestigious Innovation By Design Awards were announced on Monday, live on FastCoDesign.com. TransitScreen was selected as one of the 5 finalists in the 'Experience' category, along with McDonald's, Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, PillPack and Chipotle & Creative Artists Agency.
"We are thrilled to be joining such an all-star cast of innovators as finalists in the Fast Company Innovation by Design awards. This recognition is a testament to the creativity of our team and the tremendous potential we see in SmartWalk technology," TransitScreen cofounder Ryan Croft said in a statement.
The Innovation by Design Awards, now in their third year, honor the most innovative and disruptive design solutions to today’s business problems. This year’s judging panel, which was once again comprised of the world’s best design minds, selected the finalists from among 1,587 international submissions across ten categories. Honorees include big-name brands like Nike and Google, and design firms like fuseproject and Sagmeister & Walsh.
The winners will be announced on October 15th at a celebration in New York, as part of Fast Company’s Innovation by Design Conference where design leaders from Nest, IDEO, Etsy, Cooper Hewitt and others will present. More information on the awards and conference can be found here.
All 53 finalists are highlighted in the October issue of the print magazine, which hits newsstands September 16.
