Proludic Flourishes at Good Design Awards
July 6, 2016

Outdoor playground equipment company Proludic has been recognised with the presentation of a Good Design Award for their Inclusive Play Areas Guide, a Good Design Selection award for their GymLudic® range, and a Good Design Finalist nomination for their Urbanix Fitness products.

Welcoming the recognition, Proludic Commercial Manager Madeleine Walding stated “we are particularly proud of our Good Design Award for our Inclusive Play Areas Guide, and the recognition of our approach of providing our clients with useful and easily accessible tools, and working with them in a collaborative way to achieve well designed playgrounds for children of all abilities.”

Details of the Awards:

Inclusive Play Areas Guide - Good Design Award in the category of Social Innovation
The main objective of the Social Innovation Awards category is to recognise the role of design in creating a better society. 

Good Design Australia defines Social Innovation as “the creation of something new or the improvement of existing solutions that meet pressing unmet social needs and improve people’s lives.”

Proludic’s award winning Inclusive Play Areas Guide was created to enhance understanding of the specific features and needs of disabled children in play areas, and measures that can be taken to compensate for difference and ensure accessibility for all children.

The Inclusive Play Areas Guide provides a comprehensive resource for the design community to see how inclusive playgrounds can be implemented for the enjoyment of all children and their families.
