In all our work we hope to create something that will be a catalyst for positive change.
From the start of a ‘design for print’ project, we consider the following criteria in order to promote environmental and social responsibility:
Size matters. By reducing the physical size of a piece of print – from A4 to B5, for example – we can cut both the financial and the environmental costs of paper and print. Likewise with imposition – the way we plan pages on a larger printed sheet – which we can use creatively to maximise the overall printed space on a press sheet.
When designing for print we are committed to using recycled or certifiably sustainably sourced paper. We are FSC© certified and ISO 14001 registered.
We will use renewable energy, specify vegetable oil based inks for (litho) printing and choose processes and materials which minimise the emission of carbon and volatile organic compounds.
We are committed to improving resource efficiency and consider the life cycle of a printed piece to be an important part of the design brief. Our aim is to produce print materials which can be reused or recycled easily.
