STBY shortlisted for the European Rail Awards 2014

STBY’s project “Service Innovation for train travellers” conducted for the Dutch Railways (NS and ProRail) has been shortlisted for the European Rail Awards 2014 in two categories:
– Most Innovative Rail Project of the Year
– Excellence in Travel Information & Marketing

The European Rail Awards aim to disseminate the very best practice throughout Europe. The awards are part of the European Rail Congress that brings together the European railway industry to discuss and debate important developments that will determine the future of the European rail sector.

The winners of the European Rail Awards will be announced on November 11th 2014 in London. We’ll keep you posted and until that time let’s keep our fingers crossed as we hope to add this prize to our ‘collection’, next to the Rotterdam Design Public Prize, Sign Design Award and the D&AD black pencil.
