Sustain Green Salon: Tania KacWest Des Moines Public Library, 4000 Mills Civic Pkwy, West Des Moines, IA, 50265
Design with the future in mind! Sustain, an AIGA Iowa Green Salon, is an introduction to ways that creative minds can implement sustainable practices.
Designarchy is a sustainable micro studio that provides graphic design services with a small ecological footprint. Why does it matter as designers, we not only have the responsibility to learn about sustainable practices and incorporate them into our lives, we also have a role in educating our clients. So many designers look at the client for leadership in sustainability when we should be offering clients the option of using recycled paper, soy inks, clean printing, and so forth. Tania Kac believes understanding the impact of design and production choices throughout the creative process is not only imperative in ensuring a more sound and sensitive end product, but in creating alliances with your own clients who are also sustainably-motivated.
