CBD_Logo_Full CBD_Logo_FullThe DE team has won the logo design for the United Nations 2016 Inter­na­tional Day of Bio­di­ver­sity. The DE design was selected from over 40 sub­mis­sions and has been praised for how it cap­tures the theme of: Main­stream­ing of Bio­di­ver­sity – Sus­tain­ing Peo­ple and their Liveli­hoods (https://www.cbd.int/idb/2016/logo.shtml).

We strived to sim­plify and cap­ture the com­plex­ity of human-nature inter­ac­tions and the con­nec­tion between sus­tain­able liveli­hoods and the need for bio­di­ver­sity con­ser­va­tion. We are happy that we hit the mark for the UN. It’s a plea­sure to work with such tal­ented and com­pas­sion­ate peo­ple on this very impor­tant global issue” said Matthias Tschan­nett, DE Cre­ative Director.

The IBD is an impor­tant ini­tia­tive of the United Nations to increase under­stand­ing and aware­ness of bio­di­ver­sity issues. It is held every May 22nd, to com­mem­o­rate the adop­tion of the text of the UN CBD. There are alarm­ing threats to species and ecosys­tems with a rate of human-caused species extinc­tion that con­tin­ues to rapidly increase. A shift to sus­tain­abil­ity is needed in order to pre­serve our nat­ural her­itage and valu­able eco­log­i­cal assets for present and future generations.
