Idean wins multiple Grand One awards for MyHelsinki.fi

April 5, 2018

Wins in the Best Web Service and Best Service Design categories

Idean celebrated at the Grand One Awards–the leading advertising and design competition in the Nordics. The team at Finland Studio won two awards and received an Honorary Mention for designing My Helsinki, a digital city guide.

The first win was the Best Web Service Award for the UX design of myhelsinki.fi. The award was delivered with the following message from the jury:

“The content is the king. It serves the locals and the tourists alike: the familiar faces who are Helsinki residents take you along a journey to their favorite spots within the city, and unveil fascinating and surprising sides of Helsinki.”Grand One Jury Executive Member, Juuso Myllyrinne

The second award came in the Best Service Design category, also for myhelsinki.fi. With service design we were able to get to the roots of what truly satisfies the end user—which is one of the many reasons why My Helsinki is such a successful platform.

The jury went on to say: “The service is topical and functional–for both new and past visitors–and it shows a sense of character while also highlighting its trendiness.”

To help familiarize our colleagues with service design, we recently released a new guide that describes the principles behind our My Helsinki project. You can download Idean’s Service Design Guide here.
