The creative inspiration for the design of the awards site was Seeds: Time Capsules of Life by Rob Kesseler and Wolfgang Stuppy. This book reveals a hidden world lying beyond the scope of the human eye. Using an electron microscope to photograph seeds spluttered with a fine coating of gold, the authors reveal the fascinating anatomy of the seed and how each travels through time and space until it reaches the right place at the right moment to create a new plant.

Look closer.
