We were tasked with the job of illustrating The Ford Foundation’s mission to equip individuals in developing countries with the tools they need to solve some of the most basic human problems facing the world today. The International Fellowships Program offers local leaders in marginalized communities the opportunity to receive advanced graduate degrees at international universities, and gave us the opportunity to do some animating for a great cause.
