London product consultancy Frazer Designers has designed this new test meter, the Megger CM300, which is being launched on to the European market. Created for Avo International, the manufacturer of electrical instruments, the integrated unit for testing electrical installments replaces four separate meters and features the new corporate colour of dark navy. According to Frazer senior designer Damian Mycroft, ‘we were looking for an ergonomic format which can be used hands-free’, as the Megger has to be used on-site, down manholes and up ladders. The project is part of an ongoing programme to reposition Avo International products with new corporate colour and graphics.
The visual system created by SomeOne is based on movement patterns of birds gliding on thermal columns, which allow them to travel long distances with ease.
