Stephen Hall has been appointed global visual manager at the retailer Esprit. The former creative director of menswear retailer Burton starts the new position next week and will be tasked with ‘directing everything visual, including windows and store environments’, he says. He left Arcadia-owned Burton last year (DW 1 December 2005).
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”.
