Cultural Evolution Society graphic identity, web design and grant portal

We’ve been working with colleagues at the Cultural Evolution Society and the Anthropology Department at Durham University to specify and design the experience of applying for funding including an introductory website, an online application and review process, and an interactive form to make the process easy and intuitive.

The Cultural Evolution Society’s Transformation Fund is now live and the team are in the process of selecting research applications to ‘transform the field of cultural evolution and its application to global human futures’


As part of our wider work with the society we also designed a new logo that helps to explain how culture evolves and entwines over time. Is cultural evolution something that can be controlled and supported through education, cross-pollination of ideas and rigorous analysis? 
If this is something that you are interested in do read more here.

Representation of biological evolution (a) versus cultural evolution (b), after Kroeber (1948:216; redrafted by Dean R. Snow) – read more about cultural evolution.


We are now developing the society’s new online presence, building on the structure that we used for the funding portal but with the ambition to help more people learn about the significance of cultural evolution as an academic discipline and helping leaders in the field create real world impact not just in the field of cultural studies but in wider social, environmental and political spheres.
