8. The Meaning of Winning an Interaction Award

In this episode, our host Diego Pulido sits down with the current co-chair of the Interaction Awards, Angel Anderson.

Angel shares stories from her long history with the Interaction Design Association; what motivated her to get involved with the planning committee of the Interaction Awards for 2021; her experience being selected (and winning) an Interaction Award, as well as the impact this recognition has had in her professional and personal life. She also gives listeners a sneak preview of what can be expected from this unprecedented version of the Awards.

Finally, Angel recalls how her idea of “dressing up in style for the biggest celebration in our industry” came to be, and even takes some time to recall memorable moments from previous Interaction conference closing parties --full of dancing and plenty of karaoke.
