Next month Glasgow plays host to more than 40 young designers who usually work in Scandinavia. ‘Young Nordic Design – The Generation X’ showcases the latest contemporary incarnations of a design style that is at once urban and close to nature. All five Nordic countries are represented. Work ranges from furniture pieces like Thomas Bernstrand’s threetier Wembley sofa to graphics like Kim HiorthÃ¸y’s album sleeves for Motorpsycho, and includes industrial, fashion and textile design. The exhibition runs from 14 September to 20 October at The Lighthouse in Mitchell Lane, Glasgow.
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”.
