To reduce costs, these bells are often cheap, ineffective and undesirable, causing many users to remove them reducing the safety of the riders. The Oi Bell offers bike owners a beautifully designed and highly desirable object that is a delight to use.
The Oi Bell has already gained incredible market success with more than 37, bells sold in over 93 countries since being launched in March Best in Category Winners Designed by: The severe limitations of a tiny, triangular site and the demanding heritage context have resulted in a pointy 'wedge house' that is designed to exploit its 'problem site'.
This project demonstrates the possibility of achieving quality family housing in a compact but highly liveable form within extremely constrained sites.
Acute House highlights the role of good design in tackling a site conventionally dismissed as 'too small' or 'too weird' to be viable. With a limited advertising budget they decided to redesign their packaging as an alternative strategy.
After testing and comparing the absorbency of the towels to other products on the market, the design team found that they could soak up almost twice as much water compared to market alternatives - an incredible 2 litres of water.
To reinforce this unique selling point, the towels were packaged in 2 litre plastic bottles and displayed in refrigerators in-store. The new packaging provided a simple and effective way to reframe what shoppers should value most when purchasing a towel: This approach embeds a collaborative environment that seeks to break down the typical silos of design to infuse a holistic design strategy.

Through live data, the wall changes according to the sun's position. Weather data means that when it rains outside, virtual rain drops appear and four key seasons change the foliage appearance throughout the year. The wall is rendered dynamically in a 3D game engine, allowing customers to request a variety of creatures and objects to appear on the wall and adjust their colour and intensity - a celebration of ANZ's brand philosophy of "Your World.
