I was lucky enough to attend the inaugural UX UK awards (http://uxukawards.com) the awards celebrate great user experiences both online and offline, because good user experience goes beyond wireframes and pixels it impacts lives.
My favourite example of this came from the winners of the best innovation category - Barclays bank.
Their project was all about improving UX for Blind and Partially Sighted People, a subject that really interests me. They created high contrast cash cards and provided audio for transactions… Such good and intuitive ideas basically take the experience of using cash machines (ATM’s) from being unbearable to a more intuitive and bearable experience.
The night was brilliant and really inspiring, I love seeing what other people are working on. I only wish that during the awards there was a little showcase of all the nominees.
For all the winners
