Kitchenware brand Culinaire is launching 12 products this week, created by Rodd Industrial Design. The consultancy completed the 3D rebrand of the kitchen utensils range to improve the ergonomics of the range. Rodd’s work will introduce design features to improve ease of use and to make the products easier to clean. Products include a twin wheel pizza slicer (above right), a garlic crush, a corkscrew, a safety and swivel peeler (above left), a cheese slice, a lemon zester, and a strawberry huller. Rodd was appointed by Andrew Thornton, head of design and product development at brand owner William Levene, following a competitive creative pitch last September.
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”.
