NPR's "All Things Considered" explores the fascinating social life of Leafcutter Ants with world-renowned biologist E.O. Wilson. Wilson, a Harvard Professor Emeritus and two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize, has authored dozens of papers and books. Wilson's study of these complex and socially sophisticated organisms has lead to a new realm of study within the biology field called sociobiology. Wilson, the so called "King of Ants," believes that the study of sociobiology (and in this case the social structure of ants) can help us better understand "who we are" and thus attempt to answer "where are we going."
Malcolm Grear Designers was honored to be asked to create the visual identity program for the E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation. The mission of the Foundation is "to preserve biological diversity in the living environment by inventing and implementing business and educational strategies in the service of conservation."
