About the award

In 2010 the daily board of the Design and Emotion society decided to install a new award, “the slow glow award”. This bi-annual award goes to:

  • someone who has made an excellent and long lasting contribution to the field of design and emotion;
  • someone whose theoretical, empirical or design work has made a profound impact to our understanding of ‘the experience of everyday things’;
  • someone who has consistently and authentically shown us how to design for a world that is very much worth living in.

    The first award was awarded to Jodi Forlizzi from Carnegie Mellon at the 7th international conference on Design & Emotion in Chicago, 2010.
