Portland Design has paid tribute to its environmental graphic designer Jo Moore, who died earlier this month, aged 33, following an accident. After studying at Central St Martins College of Art and Design, she started her career at Fitch, before joining Portland in 2003. ‘Jo will be sadly missed by her colleagues. Her integrity, selfless nature and compassion contributed to her reputation. Clients including English Heritage and Land Management have paid tribute to an enchanting young lady, who was admired for her exceptional talent, commitment and kindness.’ Her family requests that any donations be made at www.uclh.nhs.uk/charities+at+UCLH/National+Hospital+Development+Foundation.
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”.
