The College Football Playoff National Championship trophy is the ultimate goal of college football teams across the United States. Awarded to the winner of the College Football Playoff National Championship Game, the trophy represents the highest level of team achievement in the Division 1 NCAA sport.
Pentagram’s Michael Gericke and his team have created a dynamic and contemporary design for the trophy. Commissioned for the new era of the College Football Playoff, the trophy will be presented on-field to the winner of the Championship Game on January 12, 2015.
The new trophy is designed to be raised in celebration by the winning team. An ascending virtual football, the trophy’s handcrafted gold brackets surround a hardened steel core. The design features a focused football at the center of the base that rises within the trophy to form an actual-size ball. Standing at a total height of three feet, the trophy and base are two integral but separate pieces, so the trophy may be lifted up independently when it is awarded at the championship game.
Marina Willer and her team have created the identity for a new DVD and album by London Bossa, a Collective lead by the talented Brazilian jazz artist Mônica Vasconscelos.
The design is inspired by Brazilian modernism and infused with the spirit of Bossa Nova, a genre which was born out of Rio de Janeiro’s South Zone in the late 1950s. The identity is formed around a geometric structure coloured by handmade textures that express the contrast of jazz, Bossa Nova and Monica’s irresistible rhythms.

When Mothercare approached Daniel Weil for help with a new feeding range, he proposed an unusual solution. In a category dominated by engineering advances, Weil began the project with a study of parenting across the last four decades to find a human context. His research led to discovery, invention and ultimately a new baby bottle design.
