During this one hour webinar Re-nourish co-founder Yvette Perullo will present how practicing communication designers can make positive, greener and pragmatic design decisions and how your communication design practice can apply to the Re-nourish Sustainable Standards for inclusion in their directory. She will share with you the tools she has developed at Re-nourish that will empower you to implement sustainable design into your everyday practice. Special guest Gage Mitchell, Creative Director of the sustainable design studio Modern Species will also be joining the discussion. Finally, there will be an open Q&A during which you will be invited to ask questions of Yvette and Gage.
