Finalists for the Interaction Awards

We are thrilled that our work with the National Pro Grid League was selected as a Finalist for the Interaction Awards in the category of “Engaging”.

The NPGL is a startup sports league that connected with Cooper in the Spring of 2014 with the goal of building their league with design and technology at its core and envisioning how fans engage with athletes, teams, and “smart” sports leagues.

You can take a peek behind the Cooper curtain and see how we approached this awesome service design challenge in these blog posts about the design challenge and our takeaways.

Now we're just keeping our fingers crossed for the Interaction15 Conference in San Francisco!

Inside the IxDA 2014 Student Design Challenge

As co-chair of the 2014 IxDA Student Design Challenge with Dianna Miller, I recently had the pleasure of announcing this year's theme, “Information for Life,” sponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Now in its fifth year, the IxDA Student Design Challenge (SDC) will run during the Interaction14 conference in Amsterdam, February 5-8, 2014. The competition brings together exceptional undergraduate and graduate students for both critical thinking and hands-on experiences over the course of the conference. Here, students have the opportunity to present their work in a way that shows, rather than tells, and it’s also a terrific venue for students to connect with colleagues, potential employers, funders, or new networks.

And I speak from experience -- this competition holds a special place in my heart as I was a participant myself just a few years ago, in 2011.

Cooper wins Best in Category, Optimizing at IxDA's Interaction Awards

Cooper is honored and delighted to receive the award for “Best in Category, Optimizing”. We are proud to be in the company of some of the most creative and innovative designers and grateful to the Interaction Awards Jury for their consideration.

Over a year ago, Cooper teamed up with Practice Fusion to design an app that revolved around how medical professionals think. Instead of asking them to learn a new way of organizing information, this EMR for iPad app leveraged their natural mental model of treating and working with people. This app significantly simplified and reduced the work of using an EMR by eliminating complex navigation and abstract categories. Now doctors can clearly view and capture details about their patients, without being chained behind a desktop.

IDEA Bronze award for litl interactive experience

Congratulations to the litl team for a great showing at the International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA), taking home awards in packaging, hardware and software, the latter of which we're proud to have contributed to. We're thrilled to have been part of such an amazing team and grateful for the recognition from the IDEA panel and litl.

Here's what the judges had to say about the litl user interface:

Designed to remove the barriers between you and web content, it is extremely simple to use and eliminates the clutter and distractions of traditional computer interfaces.

Congratulations to litl

We're excited to announce the release of the litl, a simple, and quite frankly, very cool, computer for the home.

We're proud to say that we helped design the litl. We worked for a year alongside the amazing folks at litl, as well as a number of other partners including fuseproject, Fort Franklin and Pentagram to make the vision a reality.

litl webbook

The litl can be used in both laptop and easel modes (to support lean-forward and lean-back interactions), and does away with a lot of the unseemly artifacts of more traditional desktop idioms like folders and menus. It's closely integrated with the social Web and designed around family life.

We'll get a case study about our efforts up on our site as soon as we can. In the interim, check out the litl site for more about the computer and the company.

Stratus Air: A Cooper concept project

When we saw the topic of this year's I.D. Magazine Annual Design Review concept category, we thought it would be fun to put together an entry. As frequent travelers, we were particularly inspired by the brief: design a graphic, object, or environment that would improve the experience of air travel.

We thought our approach was a good mix of practicality and inspiration; a premium loyalty service enabled by helpful bits of technology that would ease the pain and smooth the turbulence of business travel. Did we expect to win? Absolutely. Even though the judges didn’t share our enthusiasm, we’re happy with what we came up with, and we wanted to share it with you.

We present Stratus Air.
