Sony Ericsson’s first retail store opened last night on Kensington High Street in London. The 360m2 store, designed by Checkland Kindleysides, includes plasma screen window displays with a changing facia. It also features an ‘infinity’ bar – a sculpted bar running the length of the store – and a lounge area, with a curved black wall made from veneered panelling and hidden ceiling lighting. Around the store, large graphics show close-ups of products.
The start of a new year brought us an identity for a Covid-adapted restaurant, calligraphic coffee branding and a new series of lockdown posters.
Seals set up foundry Vocal Type – which takes inspiration from past protest movements – in the hope of celebrating creatives of colour.
It will be another month spent at home but you can still take in everything from utopian community building to overcoming creative barriers and more.
This year winning work will be given a bigger platform than ever before, we are assembling our biggest ever judging panel and categories have been tweaked for maximum relevance.
