Clipsal by Schneider Electric’s ‘Clipspec’ Design Application – built by Luminary – has been honoured for excellence in design and innovation in the coveted Good Design Awards. The winners were announced during the 2021 Good Design Awards Week, with Clipspec receiving the accolade in the Digital Design category. 

Clipspec is used by Clipsal’s consultants to help consumers who are building or renovating their home to bring their electrical vision to life and create an electrical design plan. 

The Good Design Awards celebrate design and innovation in the Australian and international market across 12 design disciplines and 30 subcategories, including digital and communication design, architectural design, precinct design, engineering and fashion. The Awards also recognise new and emerging areas of design, encompassing design strategy, social impact design, design research and up-and-coming design talent.  

The 2021 Good Design Awards attracted a record number of submissions with 933 design projects evaluated by more than 70 Australian and international jurors, including designers, engineers, architects and thought leaders. Each entry was evaluated according to a strict set of design evaluation criteria which includes good design, design innovation and design impact.

In assessing the Clipspec app, the Good Design Awards jury commented: “A really terrific job in simplifying what was likely an incredibly complex set of interactions. It's not easy to do that and deliver a great looking UI, particularly with industrial/technical subject matter. This is a solid clean design that has proven to deliver fiscal benefits as well as improve usability and ease of use for consultants and clients.”

Dr Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia said: “Projects recognised with an Australian Good Design Award demonstrate excellence in professional design and highlight the impact a design-led approach has on business success and social and environmental outcomes. Receiving an Australian Good Design Award is testament to embedding design excellence at the heart of a product, service, place or experience. 

“Although 2021 continues to be another challenging year, it is incredibly inspiring to see designers and businesses working together to find innovative, customer-centric design solutions to local and global challenges and to see them recognised and rewarded for their efforts through these prestigious Awards,” Dr Gien went on to say.

“The importance of embracing good design principles is now more important than ever as many businesses around the world have had to completely rethink their business strategies to remain competitive. The standard of design excellence represented in this year’s Awards is the best I’ve ever seen in my 25 years of running these Awards, an encouraging sign that the design sector is flourishing.”
