Koombea’s Team and its client LINCSPRING have been honored with two Indigo Design Awards. Both teams worked together and delivered outstanding results, showing a total commitment towards a great design experience. The two awards received are Gold in Website Building Software 2020, and Silver in UX, Interface & Navigation 2020.
The Koombea Team would like to thank the Indigo Design Awards committee for this recognition. The Indigo Design Awards is one of the most important prizes within the design world. Its jury is made up of some of the brightest design minds from all nationalities. Having this recognition is a great honor, especially when considering the number of talented contenders who also participated in the competition.
This gratefulness is extended to the team members at Koombea who participated in the project. This wouldn’t have been possible without them.
Koombea interviewed LINCSPRING’s co-founders, Tiffany Wycoff and Jaime Pales, after winning this recognition:
Koombea: What does it mean to LINCSPRING to receive this type of recognition?
Tiffany Wycoff: Overall, it validates that our product is engaging, supportive, and helpful. It shows us that our vision is right when we portray users as being excited to use it. It confirms just how important UX is.
Jaime Pales: I agree, and I would like to add that, besides recognizing the team’s efforts, it also validates us as being a learner center organization. It shows how passionate we are about delivering each individual a great learning experience.
Koombea: What do you think the critical success factors were for your project?
Tiffany Wycoff: Personalization is definitely an important factor. We wanted our platform to be friendly to users, but also, we wanted to feel that, as a team, we were creating something unique. This recognition confirms that we are on the right track.
Jaime Pales: The possibility to personalize our product makes interaction more fun for each individual user. It brings excitement upfront. Another key element is being able to help users solve their issues when using the platform by giving them the support they need.
Koombea: What type of feedback have you received about your app’s interface?
Tiffany Wycoff: We’ve had some casual user messages congratulating us. That inspires us a lot to keep the effort going. We’ve also had some recognitions on behalf of some important education-related institutions.
Jaime Pales: In the joint research project from EdSurge, TLA, and CZI, “In the Driver’s Seat: Online Professional Learning Design Features in Action,” studying nearly 85 online platforms, LINCSPRING is one of few platforms prominently featured as leading in multiple categories.
Koombea: How has Koombea helped you achieve this success?
Tiffany Wycoff: An important part of our success comes from our partnership with Koombea. They helped us understand and question our value proposition. It was a fun process where both teams actively participated. Koombea’s team was very creative and responsive to our needs. They were able to adapt to our company’s realities and were always willing to learn.
Jaime Pales: Developing our product is analogous to going to the mechanic. You might not know how the car works, but you need it running. This requires confidence and trust, otherwise, you are not going to feel in good hands. Koombea gave us that and much more.
