OpenArc is pleased to announce that it has won the award for Data + Apps Project of the Year at the 2016 CREATE Festival for its work on Kindworks, a mobile app which allows users to share acts of kindness across the globe.

OpenArc designed and built Kindworks, a mobile application platform that encourages people to participate in daily acts of kindness - taking inspiration from the knowledge that others are committing such acts all around them. The client, humanitarian and entrepreneur George Blobe, was inspired by a random act of kindness to create an opportunity and a community space for others to experience the value and reach of the simplest deeds - and for them to participate themselves. He engaged No Typical Moments, a digital marketing and technology consultancy dedicated to solutions that positively impact humans and the planet, to assist with ideation and evangelization of the end product. Blobe and NTM then approached OpenArc to drive the design and technical build.

“Projects like Kindworks are a joy to work on. To be able to combine the unique technical challenges of the project with the bighearted inspiration behind it is a rare treat, and we are extremely proud of the result,” says David Palmer, OpenArc Chief Marketing Officer.
