Design by Nature: Resource for the Graphics Industry


If you are a graphic designer working towards more environmentally sustainable practices, then this new Australian resource might be of intrigue. "It is not an elite forum, nor about preaching to the converted. It is where all are encouraged to join the dialogue and the debate, graphic designers, clients, students and all people with an interest and stake in the graphic design process. But it is also about creating an informed community of designers and clients - people who can directly and immediately affect more sustainable practices by harnessing their creativity and reassessing the way they interpret briefs and communicate messages." You'll find a gallery of case studies, a guide to ecodesign, paper, printing and packaging plus a discussion forum. Some elements of the site are by paid subscription, begining at $15 AUD, which seems fair. While the content might be useful the Flash style of navigation is somewhat ponderous. ::Design by Nature
