Wiltshire-based Origin has nothing if not chutzpah. After seeing illustrator Lo Cole’s 12 interpretations of Olympian gods, the group just had to turn them into a calendar, but couldn’t afford top quality presentation. ‘I got all the equipment free, from printing to paper,’ says a jubilant Amanda Williams, Origin’s project manager, admitting to ‘bullying the companies’. Williams shares Cole’s obsession with Greek gods. ‘They ruled so strongly and weren’t distant gods,’ she says. The calendar is designed by Origin’s Nick Belson.
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”.
