We at Experientia have always admired the work of Jake Barton and his company Local Projects, for the way that they have deeply woven people’s narration and storytelling into the design of interactive installations and museums.
Now Jake has won the 2013 National Award for Interaction Design, which shall be handed to him by Michelle Obama during a luncheon ceremony at the White House. Congratulations!
The National Design Awards – which cover a range of design categories – were conceived by the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum to honor lasting achievement in American design. The Awards are bestowed in recognition of excellence, innovation, and enhancement of the quality of life.
