Planet Innovation recognized for world leading product design

Ben DruceVice President, Strategic Design

On Friday May 27th, I sat with several Planet Innovation clients as their products picked up four trophies at the Good Design Awards night in Sydney. This was icing on the cake for some truly industry-changing products that are in-market and selling; in some cases, faster than they can be produced. Planet Innovation is proud to have contributed Design, Engineering and Commercial expertise to Genea Biomedx, Minelab and Cycliq, and we congratulate them on their success.
