In 2015, Native and Coloplast's Design DNA won a Gold and Best in Show in IDSA's International Design Excellence Awards. "Being the first United Kingdom design company to win both Gold and Best in Show at IDEA was a real honor for everyone at our London and San Francisco studios,” says Warren, a nearly 20-year international member of IDSA. “The insights and empathetic design work we did for Coloplast in the past six years has helped transform their fortunes and the intimacy health care industry for the better. Having this work recognized internationally by IDSA has been very well received by our clients and prospective new clients. Many of them had known about this healthcare work—but had not fully appreciated it was by us at Native, until the award came out.”
