QUT Design Lab project “Agency and Access: Re-Designing the Prison Health Request Process” has been awarded a prestigious global design accolade, as a named finalist at the 2022 SEGD Global Design Awards in Portland, USA (June, 16-18). The organizational mission of SEGD – the Society for Experiential Graphic Design – is to “Educate, Connect and Inspire”, and we are delighted that our Australian project to re-design the prison request form and process was shortlisted! The awards celebrate design that inspires and improves the human experience for individuals of all backgrounds and abilities – and you can see our project, with the other finalists and award winners, at the SEGD Project Gallery: segd.org.
Thank you to the broader project team – especially the prisoners and healthcare staff, and our partners: Queensland Health’s Office for Prisoner Health and Wellbeing (Graham Kraak), Capricornia Correctional Centre (Darren Holzberger), Health Consumers Queensland (Anne Curtis) and Clinical Excellence Queensland (Linda McCormack).
And congratulations to the QUT Design Lab team which included Professor Evonne Miller – Director of the QUT Design Lab, Professor Lisa Scharoun – Head of QUT School of Design, Dr Ruari Elkington – Lecturer in Creative Industries, and Dr Shane Pike – Lecturer in Drama
