Gabriel White announced as 2022 Interaction Awards Jury Chair

Every year the Interaction Awards Co-Chairs choose the Jury Chair. The Jury Chair is one of the most vital roles for the Interaction Awards to fill each year – helping curate and lead the jury, while ensuring the very best work is recognized. This person also takes on the responsibility of accounting for diversity, and responding to submissions ethically in a way that reflects the global community.

After much deliberation and many well-qualified candidates, this year’s Co-Chairs, Kadambari Sahu and Sreyan Ghosh, are thrilled to announce that Gabriel White will be leading the judging process as the 2022 Interaction Awards Jury Chair!

Gabriel is the founder and principal consultant at Small Surfaces, an international human-centred design consultancy focused on social impact projects in developing countries. Gabriel works on projects that seek to improve education, healthcare and access to financial services for low-income people across Africa, Asia and the Pacific. He also has a degree in Philosophy.


In their words,

“It’s a real honor to chair this year’s jury. It’s important to me that the work of this year’s jury recognises excellence in design both as a craft, as well as an agent of change. Great design succeeds in addressing both these basic dimensions.

In that context, I’ve brought together a jury that represents design as truly global practice. I hope that the jury members’ diverse perspectives and experiences will bring a unique viewpoint on what it means to achieve excellence in design today.”


The Interaction Awards are an initiative of the Interaction Design Association (IxDA), a global community of more than 120,000 individuals worldwide dedicated to the professional practice of Interaction Design. Find out how to join your local group and get involved at
