"The genius of the work that Trollbäck did was to create for the Sustainable Development Goals a visual language which communicates with the greatest simplicity the plan for the planet. The beauty of the design belies the brilliance of the intelligence behind every choice of favellas, catwalks to conference rooms." Corinne Woods, Director of Communications at World Food Programme
"Trollbäck took the epic, technical, impersonal detailed complexity of the Sustainable Development Goals and made them clear, passionate & accessible. A crucial, life-saving, game-changing, history-making piece of work. You can’t fight for your fights if you don’t understand." Richard Curtis, Screenwriter, film director and philanthropist
