London consultancy Aboud-Sodano has designed Paul Smith’s new Spring/ Summer catalogue. Using the poolside as its setting, the glossy brochure reflects the kitsch, colourful nature of Smith’s latest male and female clothing collection, which features outsize flower prints, garish checks, micro-bikinis and 1970s-inspired scarves. The new book features photography by Miles Aldridge, including Scottie dogs sipping from multi-coloured cocktails and identical red-haired boy twins. Designed by creative director Alan Aboud, the catalogue launches this week.
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”.
