Last month, we were excited to announce that that Calm Harm had been shortlisted at this year’s UXUK Awards… and we’re delighted to say that we beat off some stiff competition to win not only the Best Not-For-Profit category, but also the overall Best User Experience award!
The Awards ceremony took place last Thursday in London at Crypt on the Green – and what a night it was! There were some prestigious names in the Best Not-For-Profit category from the likes of Cancer Research UK and The British Heart Foundation who entered some amazing projects.
The big award of the night though was for the overall Best User Experience across all categories – this was for the very best of the best, the most inspiring user focused site, app or service. With over 150 entries and 62 shortlisted, there were some big projects in the running from the likes of the BBC, Sainsburys, and Debenhams to name a few so it was quite a shock for HMA to not only be in the running but to beat all these organisations too!
Calm Harm, which has currently been downloaded over 800,000 times and is featured on the NHS app library, is an app to help from teenage mental health charity stem4 to help teenagers resist or manage the urge to self-harm. As stem4’s design and development partner, we worked with them to design the user interface (UI) and personalise the user experience (UX) on the Calm Harm app.
You can see the full list of winners on the UKUX awards website.
What a fantastic early Christmas present!
