“Feedback is a gift.. and our team loves gifts!”



Yrgo School of Architectural Visualization - Sweden

Team Yrgo first met in school, Yrgo, higher vocational education Gothenburg, where they study UX Design, and bonded over their shared love of music quizzes, equality and human rights, wearing black caps and their interest in service design. Staying true to their Swedish roots, they prefer to point out the collective instead of individual efforts and focus on their strengths as a team. Coming from different backgrounds, they all undertook different roles throughout the competition and helped and pushed each other to be the best they could. Teamwork makes the dream work!


Team members - Josefine Moos (Sweden), Samuel Isaksson (Sweden), Sara Norén (Sweden), Philip Gates (Sweden)

“It's been my absolute pleasure to coach team Yrgo. It was fun and insightful to think with the team on different ways to do their research and to brainstorm during COVID times where it was impossible to come together in person to do these (normally) face to face activities.”

Assessment coach, Merel van Dijke, IBM Studios Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Service concept

Rehub - a game platform adapted for cognitive disabilities. Rehub is an application service offering games and exercises to stroke patients designed with an understanding of brain fatigue. It is also a community platform where users play together as part of their cognitive rehabilitation and find support from other users. Physical visits to rehabilitation centres are cut to a minimum saving the healthcare system extra costs. The service aims to empower users, generate social impact and lead to better mental health.


Other teams


Initiated and powered by Philips Experience Design
and co-organized with SERVICE DESIGN COLLEGE, in
collaboration with IBM and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
