Re-nourish is a web resource dedicated to sustainability in Graphic Design. For a few years now, Professor Benson has been hard at work communicating the importance of the proper sourcing of paper, inks and other design related materials for the betterment of our environment.

It is great as both a primer to get up to speed on the issues at hand, and as a resource to refer to whenever you need to think about sustainability in the design process.

    2. Wow, I'm a little blown away by all the comments! Some additional details if anyone is interested:

      Our goal is to provide the graphic design industry with free, reliable, practical, and above all useful tools and information about sustainable design. The three of us are all working designers, and believe our industry is changing rapidly. Until now, there really hasn't been any single resource designers can use in their day-to-day studio practice - a lot of people have been talking about it, but there's been very little tangible action - so we figured we should build one.

      If you check out the site, be sure to explore it deeply: there's a great collection of case studies for inspiration, primers on greener print, digital and package design, and of course the searchable paper and printer databases, and the Project Calculator.

      The site is constantly growing and improving, so please don't hesitate to share your thoughts, either here or through the site.

      Thanks for the love!
