"You see people laid bare psychologically," a British submarine officer who passed the Perisher told Insider.The person hearing those words has spent more than a decade of their life on a submarine and has passed a notorious, months-long command course known as Perisher.
The seal was awarded to major multinational conglomerates including Amazon, Unilever, AstraZeneca, Bank of America, and more "in recognition of their commitment to, and momentum towards, the creation of genuinely sustainable markets."
The seal is rendered in a green circle covered in weaving ivy, flowers, and insects. It was designed by British creative collective LoveFrom.
"Working closely with HRH The Prince of Wales, the design was based upon sacred forms that establish the underlying organisation and structure of the design," the design team, led by Sir Jony Ive, wrote. "Natural references include oak leaves, fern, magnolia, honeybees, swallows and the monarch butterfly, entwined with the typography. These elements reinforce the sense of harmony and fertility, allowing flora and fauna to gently take control in a vibrant celebration of nature."
