I’m a huge supporter of GOOD. The topics they cover and their approach to design is an inspiration. A recent article, Can Designers Save the World Without Creating More Stuff? touches on a topic that’s always troubled me. As designers, we typically tend to create the new without much regard for what already exists. While sustainable design is something we should strive for, it’s not necessarily something we always do strive for.
One of our professors at IU, Eli Blevis focuses on sustainability in design. It’s something I’ve always admired but not necessarily something that’s always been on the top of my mind. My goal this year is to consider it more closely in my designs. Because really, this is a huge problem.
