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.
