Till Payments win Australia’s coveted Good Design Award for Design Excellence
The winners of Australia’s peak industry design awards – the highest honour for design and innovation in the country were announced at The Star on 11 July at the 61st annual Good Design Awards Ceremony.
Till Payments received a prestigious Good Design Award Winner Accolade in the Product Design category in recognition for outstanding design and innovation.
Shadi Haddad, Founder and CEO of Till Payments said: “Receiving this internationally recognised award is a testament to all the hard work over the last three years by the team.”
The annual Good Design Awards is Australia’s most prestigious international Awards for design and innovation with a proud history dating back to 1958. The Awards celebrate the best new products and services on the Australian market, excellence in architectural design, engineering, fashion, digital and communication design and reward emerging areas of design strategy, social impact and design entrepreneurship.
The Good Design Awards Jury spent several days evaluating each entry according to a strict set of design criteria which covers ‘good design’, ‘design innovation’ and ‘design impact’. Projects recognised with a Good Design Award must demonstrate excellence in all areas and convince the Jury they are worthy of recognition.
Dr. Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia said: “Receiving a Good Design Award at this level is a significant achievement given the very high calibre of entries received this year.”
“Australia’s Good Design Award is more than a symbol of design excellence, it represents the hard work and dedication towards an innovative outcome that will ultimately improve our quality of life. These projects showcase the brilliance of design and the potential it has to improve our world,” said Dr. Gien.
The Good Design Awards Jury praised Till Payments commenting: “The handling of multiple cash and payment systems integrated into a single product is very innovative. Use of the briefcase system is great, improving cash handling safety and confidence. The judges found the UX simple and intuitive. Transaction tracking was visible. The jury also liked the opportunity for brand activation on the physical product as identified with the Bingo logo. Well done!”
“From inception, we knew we had a mammoth task ahead to engineer a unified form-factor and design, that our clients could deploy into any store location or vehicle to accept both physical and electronic payments. We challenged the status quo, unifying cash and electronic payments acceptance into a single consumer driven system, that also streamlined and secured payments management for merchants,” said Mr. Haddad.
The Good Design Awards attracted a record number of submissions with close to 700 design projects evaluated in this year’s international design awards.
