‘We feel that the only way for design and designers to progress in this rapidly changing world of graphic design is to discuss and debate design issues.’ So say Ricky Sampson and Scott Denton-Cardew in the first issue of a new magazine, Shift, which they designed and edited. Both graduate from Ravensbourne College of Design & Communication this month and vow to continue publishing further issues of Shift. Sampson, whose father is MPL chairman Peter Sampson, says some bookshops are considering stocking the magazine. Copies can be obtained by contacting Ricky Sampson at 288a Court Road, Mottingham, London SE9 4TU.
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”.
