Do we really want to see the stuff of nightmares on the page? Artist JK Potter has a no holds barred approach to the most tortuous curlicues of our psyche, as we can see in his new book Neurotica, Images of the Bizarre. One skim will make you reluctant to trust surface normality. Take Mouth of the Maw Shark, which Potter sketched immediately on waking from the depths of a nightmare. Even his friends don’t escape; the faces of his ‘three closest cronies’ are ‘warped and mutilated’ in an ‘affectionate portrait’. It’s probably safer to be his enemy. Neurotica is published by Paper Tiger and costs 12.99.
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”.
