With all this ensuing chaos, you begin to see the world for what it is: a fragile system of intermingled, hardworking, soul-filled structures. One link breaks, we’re all susceptible to decay.

Gallantly, Mate, Gerald, and their stellar teams symbolize global connectivity using the simplest ingredients: rice, and ink. The result is a visually compelling, clear message: we’re in it together, and we’re going to be OK.
