    The Future Tech Awards honors Signify’s David Oldenburger


    February 06, 2020

     

    User Experience Lead at Philips Hue has been announced as a winner of the Future Tech Awards during CES 2020 in Las Vegas

     

    As legendary Hollywood graphic designer Saul Bass once said, “Design is thinking made visual”. For Bass the process of visualizing thinking resulted in iconic movie posters and title sequences, including GoodFellas, Psycho and The Shining.
     

    For Signify’s David Oldenburger, UX Lead for Philips Hue, the design process results in smart lighting products that transform the home. Actually, we should say “award-winning design process”, as David received a prestigious Bulldog at the Future Tech Awards in the category Future 50.
     

    The awards, presented annually at CES in Las Vegas, recognize outstanding achievement in tech and design.

    This win is recognition of the whole Design team, and the impact we’ve had on the Hue ecosystem"
