If your staff spend much of their time gorging on the hi-tech world of multimedia, what better way to motivate them than to take them back to the Middle Ages. The whole throng at Rufus Leonard took part in its annual staff jaunt the other weekend (including MD Neil Svenson, pictured above hugging a knight) – this time to a themed event at Bishop’s Palace in Wells, Somerset. After dressing in weedes, much mead was drunken (see Susan Costello, head of IT, top) and banquet wittles supped upon. Back in the 20th century, marketing director Jane Jones admits it was ‘quite uncivilised’.
The Australian energy start-up Edify was founded in 2015 but needed an identity to match its “established success” and wider work network.
The platform has been developed in partnership with software developers and designers EPAM, and will be targeted at children and their families in Europe and Central Asia.
The visual identity — which includes a new golden logo — (almost) leaves out its famous kangeroo as Australia looks to tell other stories.
The funding is in partnership with UKRI, and will award up to £150,000 to projects which “trial ways to implement refill infrastructure”.
