Fast Company's 2019 Innovation by Design Awards


We are thrilled to share the good news! Fast Company has named us a finalist in the Health Category and given us honorable mention in the North America Category for their 2019 Innovation by Design Awards.

The 2019 Innovation by Design Awards honor the designers and businesses solving the problems of today and tomorrow. The competition, now in its eighth year, has featured a cross section of blue-chip companies, scruffy startups, and hungry young talents. It is one of the most sought-after design awards in the industry. There are 21 categories …, and the judges include renowned designers from a variety of disciplines, business leaders from some of the most innovative companies in the world, and Fast Company’s own editors. Entries are judged on the key ingredients of innovation: functionality, originality, beauty, sustainability, depth of user insight, cultural impact, and business impact.

Fast Company’s Innovation By Design Awards celebrate trailblazing design in business. This year, our expert judges selected standouts from more than 2,800 submissions across 16 categories. That includes our first-ever Design Company of the Year Award, recognizing high-quality, ambitious design work throughout an organization. All the honorees share one thing: a commitment to solving problems, no matter how big or small, as simply and as beautifully as possible.

We are so pleased to know that this recognition will help more people discover Wheel Pad, so more families can stay at home, together.
