Have a Cool Sustainable Design Project? Renourish Wants to Know
Posted by Rebecca Blake on February 20, 2015
Eric Benson and Yvette Perullo of Renourish, the initiative to promote sustainability in communication design, are working on a book for graphic designers who “want to integrate a sustainable ethos into their workflow.” The book, Design to Renourish: Sustainable Graphic Design in Practice, seeks to teach real-world solutions to successfully collaborating with clients on creating sustainable work – projects which meet ethical and environmental standards. The authors would like to incorporate case studies of client projects, with in-depth interviews of the designers.
Designers are encouraged to submit comprehensive campaigns that meet one of Renourish’s print or digital minimum standards for sustainability. Projects can include print, digital, environmental graphic design, and packaging design. Projects must have been completed in the past five years. Student, self-promotion, and speculative works will not be considered. Projects must be submitted online by March 2.
Designers wishing to learn more about how they can make more sustainable choices in their professions can view our archived webinar with Yvette Perullo. In “Renourish: Qualify as a Sustainable Communication Design Practice,” she and guest Gage Mitchell review how designers can utilize the resources Renourish has developed to make greener and more ethical choices in running their practices. The archived webinar can be viewed for free by Guild members, or is available for purchase for $35 by non-members. Other Guild webinars on sustainable practices include “Designing for Social Value: Following Your Heart to Commercial Success” with Doug Powell and “The Truth About Paper: Positioning your Design Practice as ‘Green’” with Laura Shore of Mohawk Paper.
