About us

Design is about improving people’s lives. We believe that human-centered design can create positive change, as it helps us to understand the real aims, wishes and emotions of real people – and by doing so enables us to create meaningful solutions for actual needs.

With the UX Design Awards, IDZ honors the huge impact of user experience design on shaping a positive living environment for all.

Originating in 2008 as a show for good usability, we established the Awards in 2015. Ever since, the UX Design Awards have been honoring great user experiences in a class of their own. The annual competition is open for products, services, environments, prototypes and concepts as well as for future-oriented visions.
