These characters formed the focus for the final identity. Whilst some creative license has been taken in bringing the characters to life we have looked to retain a sense of Mexican authenticity and personality. The other important aspect of the GYG identity was the white star shape that is seen to dissect the two faces. This has a few functions.
This outlook permeates most aspects of my life. Now is as good a time as ever to try new things, and I am a great believer that good things can be achieved through fast growth. On that note, innovation can also come in the form of improving existing products and services. Immediately my mind turns to Tesla, and how Elon Musk built on an existing product to make it more efficient.
While I welcome many of these innovative products and services, I do feel like there is a downside at times. Innovation still requires old-fashioned face-to-face communication. It requires constant work, and constant failures, in order to bring about the exciting developments that we welcome and question every day.
Nathan Spataro, co-founder and deputy leader of Flux Innovation is the process by which problems become the parents of solutions. It lends itself to the notion that nothing is ever perfect, and improvement is as constant as it is exciting.
To me innovation means self-liberation for the human race. It means looking optimistically into the future, and knowing that if a problem exists, it can surely be solved. The beauty of innovation today is that it does not ask for permission.
The front line of this trend lies with technology and its relationship to society, politics, economics and the environment, as new models replace the old, not by force or coercion, but by purely rendering them obsolete. A new idea, a new product, or in some cases, just a new way of tackling an old problem. I loved the idea of communities coming together to solve a common problem and I wanted to have a similar impact, reducing congestion on our streets and making day-to-day life easier for Aussies.
Dan Nolan, co-founder and engineering lead of Proxima Innovation is not unlike a platypus, but in no way would I describe a platypus as innovative. A platypus is inexplicable but immediately able to be understood. A platypus is fine, traditionally Australian, and yet completely confounding. Much like a platypus, innovation in Australia is equally odd. Startups and businesses exist to fill that knowledge gap and make money doing so.
We spend a lot of time looking at innovation as some kind of process we can apply to something when really it tends towards being a philosophy, not some pat rubric or lens you can view a problem through. To me, innovation is something simple, something like braille or epaulets or travelators, iterative and incremental improvements on existing systems or substantive rethinks of situations that aim to use every tool we have to provide a solution. This is the true meaning of innovation to Slingshot.
Fearless entrepreneurs, breaking rules, looking for problems to solve, and thinking global about their ambitions. At the core of innovation is people, not technology, not data, not higher broadband speeds or more investment. What will accelerate innovation is giving more of these innovators the skills and knowledge needed to express themselves. The entrepreneurial spirit needs to be embedded and encouraged in our schools and developed in a meaningful way in our tertiary institutions for long term benefit.

Chris Strode, founder of Invoice2go A lot of people get mixed up with thinking innovation is all about a big creative, groundbreaking idea. It actually loses your focus. The great thing about an innovative culture is that it is dynamic and always changing with the goal of making the most efficient use of existing resources to create more value.
