Problem Solved, a book by Johnson Banks creative director Michael Johnson, will be published in October. The book analyses the issues and problems faced by designers when presented with a client’s brief. Each chapter looks at an individual problem in detail and uses case studies of designers who have solved issues in innovative ways. The cover, designed by Johnson, is based on the printers’ marque, an interrobang, which was researched by Harriet Devoy. The book will be published by Phaidon Press, priced £29.95.
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”.
