Sesh Carbon Five Communicator Awards

Sesh Mobile App Wins Two Communicator Awards

Nancy Samahito ·

We’re excited to be celebrating two additional award wins with Sesh, a mental healthcare service and Carbon Five client. The 27th annual Communicator Awards has recognized the Sesh and Carbon Five team for excellence in “Mobile Apps – Health and Fitness” and “Best User Interface” categories. 

The Communicator Awards is an annual competition honoring the best digital, mobile, audio, video, and social content the industry has to offer. It is judged and curated by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA), an assembly of leading professionals from various disciplines of the visual arts dedicated to embracing progress and the evolving nature of traditional and interactive media.

The Sesh app is a mobile mental healthcare tool that connects users with peers and licensed therapists for video-enabled group support sessions. Sesh co-founders Vittoria Bergeron and Alyssa Musket partnered with Carbon Five to design and develop the Sesh native mobile app for Android and iOS. In 10 weeks, the team worked together to build a mobile platform focused on performance, security, and user experience. 



“We ran remote design sprints where we could test multiple concepts and uncover the best way for users to discover and uncover sessions that would be most relevant to them,” said Mandy Valladares, Senior Product Designer at Carbon Five. “This method allowed us to quickly identify patterns driving the key action we wanted users to take — explore the diversity of sessions available.”

Congratulations to Sesh and the following team members for delivering this award-winning mobile application: 

Vittoria Bergeron, co-founder, Sesh
