Gavin Thomson Design has created a seating product called Benchmarque, which has been pioneered using a new laser-cutting process that enables one-off designs to be cut into metal. GTD founder Gavin Thomson says he not only hopes to exploit the various opportunities in corporate branding afforded by the product, but also to roll it out with councils and local authorities. ‘We are in conversation with the Mayor’s Office in Venice right now – the concept is gathering interest from all areas,’ he says.
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”.
