Total Design wins 3 IDA awards!

We’re kicking the new year off with amazing news, as we won three International Design Awards. The professional jury of the International Design Awards (IDA) has awarded the Hermitage’s Grand Art Game and the EpilepsieNL website with three awards. Silver and bronze for the Hermitage in the category Multimedia / Mobile / Web Application Design and Multimedia / Interactive Media, and bronze for EpilepsieNL in the category Multimedia / Mobile / Web Application Design.

EpilepsieNL – Bronze
Het Koninklijk Epilepsiefonds and the Epilepsie Vereniging Nederland joined forces last year. They changed their name to EpilepsieNL, resulting in a new logo and visual identity, a new website, a new communication strategy, social branding, and an online campaign. Henriette Verkerk, Head of Branding: “With an epileptic seizure, life is abruptly disrupted. By translating this disruption to the stretch effect, everyone can feel what happens when having an epileptic seizure. The world around you moves on, but life comes to a standstill during an attack. The new identity of EpilepsieNL has been tested by doctors and patients and matches how epilepsy feels to them. The fact that we are awarded for the website design is a great honor, but also necessary to increase awareness of Epilepsy in the Netherlands.”

Hermitage – Silver and Bronze
Paul Wolfs, Senior Designer: “Is there anything better than making culture accessible to everyone? Especially during these times, as the culture sector is under so much pressure. But how to get millennials to go to a museum? They sometimes visit the Van Gogh museum or the Rijksmuseum. But visiting a museum that falls off the beaten track with a changing collection? Winning two awards for the Grand Art Game is a great, pleasant surprise. We are as proud as a Tsar!”
