The traditional and non-PC seaside resort icons Punch and Judy are to appear on a set of Royal Mail stamps from 4 September. A strip of six first-class stamps features Punch, along with fellow puppets the Policeman, Crocodile, Clown, Beadle and Punch’s wife Judy. Photographer Keith Bernstein has given the puppets an animated look by highlighting their cartoonish qualities. The presentation pack, which opens into a miniature Punch and Judy booth, as well as the cover, have been designed by Howard Brown. For the project Royal Mail used puppets created by Punch and Judy professor Bryan Clarke.
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”.
