News: Helping Sound Agriculture Unleash the Natural Power of Plants

Sound Agriculture uses groundbreaking science and chemistry to create on-demand crop solutions—leading to more sustainable, healthier, and tastier food. What’s even more impressive: they care deeply about scientific excellence and their connection to the grower community.

Following an introduction from our friends at S2G Ventures, we sat down with the Sound team to learn how they plan to create a more sustainable and resilient agricultural system.

COGRID-19 is a series of risograph prints created to raise money for those most affected by the pandemic.

This project brings together 19 Chicago-based artists—including Associate Creative Director Alyssa Low and Designer Erick Morales of One Design—each contributing to a shared grid that comments on the public health crisis and the racial, political and environmental issues that have overtaken the year 2020. Every penny raised from the sales of the Chicago grid will be donated to Arts for Illinois.
