BRISBANE, Calif. - The 2023 NY Product Design Awards has unveiled its full list of winners for the second competitive season of 2023, marking another year of groundbreaking innovations and design excellence. The awards program, dedicated to recognizing and celebrating outstanding product design across various industries, brought together designers, innovators, and industry leaders from around the world.

Organized by the International Awards Associate (IAA), the NY Product Design Awards was established to recognize and empower designers who make the world better through their creations. The competition, receiving more than 1,500 entries in the year 2023, attracted a diverse range of entries, representing a wide array of industries, from consumer electronics and fashion to home goods and sustainable design.

Among a multitude of aspiring participants, Avive Solutions secured victory, earning a prestigious Silver award within the Medical Devices & Technology – Medical Devices category for the Avive Connect AED.

“We are thrilled to be a Silver Winner for the 2023 NY Product Design Awards. Avive was created to make a real impact on the dismal survival rates of sudden cardiac arrest in the U.S. By rethinking the design of an automated external defibrillator (AED), the Avive Connect AED increases accessibility, usability and portability. The Avive Connect AED is an integral piece as we revolutionize the system of response to ultimately save many more lives,” said Rory Beyer, Co-Founder and COO of Avive

“The competition is thrilled to extend its heartfelt congratulations to every winner, applauding them for their remarkable contributions that illuminate the path forward in the realm of modern product design,” commented Thomas Brandt, spokesperson of the International Awards Associate (IAA). “Their design philosophy, focused on user-friendliness and tangible advantages, serves as an inspiring example for all.”

IAA enlisted a panel of industry experts to serve as jurors, aiming to ensure impartiality and maintain rigorous evaluation standards. This jury had the responsibility of identifying exceptional submissions and bestowing awards and recognition upon them, with the aspiration of raising the industry’s standards of excellence. Additionally, IAA received nominations from esteemed professionals to be considered as potential jurors.

Grand Jury Panel & Evaluation Process The awards were committed to ensuring fairness in their judging process, and one strategy employed to achieve this was to incorporate a diverse range of perspectives. To accomplish this, a panel of 12 jurors representing 11 different countries was assembled. These jurors are esteemed experts in their respective fields and are affiliated with renowned companies, including Creative Art Director of Ogilvy Australia – Alexandre de Mello Collares, Managing Director/Co-Founder of LR Seoul – Joon Kwon, Associate Creative Director at MullenLowe – Renato Barreto, Industrial Designer at Arena Design Studio – Elham Mirzapour, and Executive Director of Design at Futuredge Design Studio – Arvin Maleki, to name a few.

To enhance fairness, the competition utilized a blind judging approach. This method entailed evaluating each entry in isolation, shielded from the influence of other submissions, allowing the jurors to form unbiased opinions. This approach ensured that winners were determined solely based on their individual merits. The evaluation process was also conducted in alignment with cutting-edge industry benchmarks, establishing a dynamic and progressive tone for the entire competition.

Among the participants, there were also entrants who crafted works for famous companies that were part of the competition. These entrants showcased their talents while working with household names such as SieMatic, Sichuan University Museum, MITSUBISHI ESTATE RESIDENCE CO., LTD., Western Downs Regional Council, Taitung County Government, BainUltra, Taiwan Shin Kong Commercial Bank Co., Ltd., and EverGrain.

From the multitude of competitors, each bearing company affiliations with their entries, Avive Solutions stood out as the triumphant contender, captivating the jury’s admiration with their submission.
“Once again, the NY Product Design Awards takes pride in serving as a stage to celebrate and recognize outstanding designers and their contributions, exemplified by Avive Solutions,” Thomas remarked. “As the design industry continually evolves and the competition reaches new heights annually, we eagerly anticipate witnessing the influx of exceptional works in the years to come.”
