Top Ideas


We’re thrilled to share five Top Ideas that we believe have the greatest potential to push forward the visual language of cybersecurity. Join us in celebrating these five designers: Abraham, Afsal, Claudio, Ivana, and Mariah! Browse their submissions below.

We’d also like to congratulate the other 18 shortlisted finalists, whom you can also learn more about in this Finalist Catalog. We were impressed by all of the final portfolios submitted, are deeply grateful for every applicant's effort, and are amazed by the caliber of this collective community.

This Challenge would not have been possible without the support, commitment, and time from the evaluation teams, mentor cohort, and other partners. Join us in thanking the final evaluation panel:

  • Herb Lin, Stanford University 
  • Jim Baker, R Street Institute
  • Monica M. Ruiz, Hewlett Foundation 
  • Renee DiResta, Mozilla Fellow
  • Scott Rosenberg, Axios
  • Stephanie Sizemore, OpenIDEO


We also invite you to hear directly from Challenge participants and IDEO designers in IDEO's latest blog post8 Designers’ Tips for Better Visual Storytelling—where they shared their favorite ways to design with visual language.
