2017- Cobalt's Year in Review

2017 has been a big year, full of laughter, tears, and a brand new version of Photoshop which our design team is all over right now. Here at Cobalt, it’s been a big year for us too- we’ve grown, taken on more projects than ever and finalized projects that have been years in the making. Like the end of every design project, it’s always good to take a look back on the year that happened and evaluate your progress.

This year alone we’ve taken on 62 new projects, ranging from long-term partnerships to shorter workshops and even a pro-bono project for the Peter McCallum Cancer Centre. Alongside this, we’ve wrapped up 38 projects; finalising designs and shipping off prototypes ready for mass production. It’s safe to say that everyone from our design, engineering and admin teams has been busier than ever, and we have them to thank for this year’s grand success.

We’ve had the opportunity to work with so many amazing clients in the past year. We’ve reconvened with returning clients like HeartSine Technologies and V-Core, working on improving existing projects or starting new ventures together. Alongside these returning faces, we’ve made so many more connections with brand new clients like MOG laboratories, the Gentle Roller Company and Drue Vickery, paving the way for new projects and inspiring brand new creations.

In 2017 the Cobalt family has grown, welcoming Kate Bednarz as Project Leader, who joins to the Design team having worked in a manufacturing company for the last 8 years. Ethan Catt also joins us as a Media and Communications intern, ready to manage Cobalt’s social media, website and socially responsible design blog ‘Less by Design.’ This article you’re reading right now? I- uh, I mean “He,” wrote it. You’re welcome.

So thank you to all our wonderful clients, suppliers, contractors and staff for working with us this year. And here’s to an even brighter 2018 for all.

This year, we at Cobalt are feeling humble and reflective. We’d like to take a moment to thank all of our wonderful clients for giving us one of our most successful years, and we’d like to thank all of our wonderful designers, engineers and admin team for making all this success possible.

Happy holidays!
