A design competition initiated in 2018, The Singapore Creator Awards aims at spurring creativity, enhancing user-product interaction, and discovering breakthrough product or design solutions infused with Singapore culture. The Awards celebrate the unique characteristics of the Singapore lifestyle, culture or heritage.
Every city has devised a unique way to cope with disruptions arising from the pandemic. Good design not only lifts spirits but it also gives us access to convenience. Enhancing product quality and user experience by better design paves the way to the development of new products, and new markets.
Designers and creators based in Singapore are invited to submit purposeful and functional designs that will resonate locally and contribute to the community. It can be graphic, spatial designs, user experience designs, product designs or mobile apps that reflect the new normal amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
