Sustainable graphic design

For her final research project designer Sarah Schrauwen has produced a useful guide exploring issues of sustainability in graphic design.

In the report she asks: How can we design and produce more sustainable products? How can we create a green working environment? How can we change the community, so that the next generation of designers will follow in our footsteps?

Sarah also offers solutions including 5 Tips for More Sustainable Design Work, and 10 Tips for a More Sustainable Studio.
 

There are interviews with industry experts, including Thomas Matthews, Beam, and Calverts.
 

Two hard copies of the report were printed in-house by Calverts on our KM 8000 digital press using 300gsm (FSC certifed) Loop Antique Vellum Jute for the cover and 90gsm (100% recycled) Cyclus Offset for the text, both papers from Paperback.
 

Envelopes and belly bands were made from the used paper wrappers.
 

Further detail at Sarah's website, where you can drop her an email to request a PDF copy of the report.
