10,000ft Insights is a powerful collaboration tool for the design process.

Moto Display

Motorola’s Moto Display is a low-power way of seeing important notifications at a glance. Simply reaching for your device lights up a few app icons to show recent notifications. Tapping on those icons provides more information such as text message details; upcoming meeting location and time; and more—as defined by each app’s purpose. The feature boasts a 96 percent adoption rate among Moto phone owners and is often described as a feature they “can’t live without” for time management, attention-saving and efficiency benefits.

Citizen-Centric State Government Portal

Public information is often fragmented, hard to access and scattered across various government websites, making it difficult to find crucial information—such as a citizen looking for open and accessible food banks; a business owner looking for tax information; or a journalist seeking records. In this Digital Design entry, a state government partnered with SAP’s Design and Co-Innovation Center to help realize the vision of a more transparent and citizen-centric government. The government portal is redesigned to improve access to public information, increase transparency and regain citizen trust.

Oraya IRay Radiotherapy System

Advanced Wet Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a leading cause of vision loss for seniors worldwide, and an increasingly burdensome problem for physicians, practices and healthcare systems facing an extremely fast-growing, elderly patient population. Standard therapies require costly, often lifelong and near-monthly medical injections directly into the eye. These treatments are highly stressful for many elderly patients, and expensive for healthcare systems. The Oraya IRay System is the first device to use X-rays to treat wet AMD. A one-time, 20-minute, IRay treatment is delivered to outpatients in a clinic or hospital. No post-treatment recovery is required. By precisely controlling the dose, and targeting and delivering X-rays to the diseased area of the retina—the IRay System often reduces or eliminates the need for injections.
