2023 SID Awards

The School of Industrial Design's 2023 end-of-year awards acknowledged exceptional student leadership, superlative design innovation, instructional excellence, and noteworthy student support. This momentous gathering was scheduled prior to the School's customary end-of-semester student exhibition, Launchpad, bringing together students, faculty, families, and the Atlanta design community. We celebrate and recognize the instrumental role of those who amplify the unique identity of the School of Industrial Design and contribute to its continuous evolution, expansion, and ascension.

2023 Bredendieck Awards

The Bredendieck Awards recognize the contributions of Hin Bredendieck to the School of Industrial Design and underscore the direct connections between the industrial design program at the Bauhaus and our program here at Georgia Tech. The Bauhaus introduced a revolutionary approach to design with a central focus on user context and iterative design development, including experimentation and prototyping with an extensive array of materials.

2023 Humanitarian Design Award

The School of Industrial Design also presents the Richard John Livingstone Martin and Barbara Rose Humanitarian Design Award, which supports excellence in humanitarian design for undergraduates. The award honors the memory of Richard Martin, a professor of industrial design, and founder of the Center for Rehabilitation Technology which was later transformed into the Center for Assistive Technology and Environmental Access (CATEA). Martin was a beloved professor, dedicated to humanitarian design’s important role in society. He was well-regarded for his research and outreach to the community, but his focus and dedication was to his students.

The award, which champions hands-on learning, particularly acknowledges products demonstrating innovation, manufacturability, and marketability.
