A good way to end the week for the reading set, we think. The good fellas at Ideas on Ideas dropped us a line to let us know that they’ve got a new essay up and, if you’re a regular reader, you’ll recall that we really dig their stuff. This time around, it’s big announcement time, as they’ve just launched Design Can Change, a website encouraging designers to use their gifts to promote sustainability and become more responsible in that regard themselves. The post on Ideas talks about how they’ve spent the last ten months prepping the project and talking about why they decided to do it in the first place. It’s a worthwhile cause and we wish them all the best. Here’s a little about the new site:
Design Can Change encourages graphic designers to pool their influence and impact climate change. In some respects it is a starting point for designers who wish to embrace sustainable practices. It is a resource that contains project samples, reading lists and tools. Additionally, it is a directory that allows conscientious buyers of creative services to connect with like-minded designers. It is a framework that helps enable a sustainable mindset in a designers work. It is a pledge to do our best as professionals who have a responsibility to future generations.
