Graphic design of two large info-graphic panels for the foyer of the Cairns Institute. A detailed physical world map showing all capital and major cities that are located in the Tropics world-wide and a selection of faces of people all ages, genders and races living in the tropical zone.

More than 40% of the world’s population lives in the Tropics. The Cairns Institute carries out advanced research into the opportunities and challenges faced by societies in the tropics. Focus areas include:

• Sustainable economic development
• Language and culture
• Governance and social justice
• Law and legal systems
• Education for sustainability
• Indigenous futures
• Urban design and livelihoods
• Resource management

With experts in more than 20 academic disciplines, the Institute also serves as a consulting and training hub for northern Australia and the tropics worldwide. The Institute was established in 2009 with a grant from the Australian Government.

`Leo’s design work for The Cairns Institute has been genuinely outstanding. On the strength of Leo’s contributions to our building interiors we commissioned additional work on our promotional material and a complete re-design of our website. The results are as practical as they are beautiful.’

Director, The Cairns Institute
