Sustainable Graphic Design: Tools, Systems and Strategies for Innovative Print Design
An extensive compilation (over 500 pages!) Sustainable Graphic Design contains eco-conscious discourse, design, case studies and resources. Contributing Editor Wendy Jedlicka gathered a wide range of content from sustainable design pioneers and practitioners–including graphic designers, creative managers, marketing consultants, environmentalists, researchers, and psychologists. Published by global publisher Wiley, the book provides thought provoking information regarding leading edge materials and processes, sustainable design thinking, green workflows, and sustainable business practices.
Contributing Author Dion Zuess (of ecoLingo) wrote several sections of the book, including Chapters 5 & 6.
Note: Chapter 6 titled "Working Smarter" by Dion Zuess of ecoLingo helps readers find ways to green their work and to grow their business in new ways, "making a difference step by step, but with a smaller eco-footprint than ever before."
