We are proud to announce that we awarded $50,000 to the Next Gen category winners of the 2019 Good Design Awards, Australia’s peak international design endorsement program.

The Next Gen category is open to young designers under the age of 30, and recognises innovation, sustainability, technology and design excellence across a range of design disciplines. RØDE Founder and Chairman Peter Freedman AM is a devoted supporter of the Good Design Awards and has been the principal sponsor of the Next Gen category for the past four years.

The prize money was awarded to the winners at RØDE’s HQ in Sydney during an event last Friday, August 30, which followed the official Good Design Awards ceremony in July. The three Gold winners were awarded $10,000 each, while the Best In Class winner received a cheque for $20,000.

“It was a real pleasure to present the Next Gen winners with their prizes,” says RØDE CEO Damien Wilson, “and to support Peter’s vision for fostering young creatives and innovators. Peter was very impressed by all of the winners, as were we all here at RØDE, and we hope their prize money helps them on their journeys ahead.”

The winning entries were Lettuce Eat, a series of plates made from dehydrated lettuce sourced from supermarket waste, designed by Maddison Ryder from Melbourne; Continuity, a non-invasive glucose responsive insulin, developed by Frédérique Sunstrüm from Sydney; Talu Tales, an interactive storytelling game that uses STEM education techniques to teach children, developed and designed by Annabel Blake and Deborah Ho from Little Literature Co. in Sydney; and finally the Best In Class winner, Gecko Traxx, a portable and affordable wheelchair accessory that enables off-road access for manual wheelchair users, designed by Ryan Tilley and Huy Nguyen from Melbourne.
