Sustainability posters

A series of posters I designer about a year ago for Sustainability course, MA in Design&Environment.

Questioning sustainability-related matters I have created posters for existing initiatives and projects. The posters then  were emailed to these organisations and offered them for free to use.greendrinks food sust-mean busy

MA Studio banned words list

In our MA Design studio kitchen last year students painted one wall black but no one was really using it as a blackboard.

To alleviate stress and add more fun I decided to start a list of these annoying buzzwords which we hear all the time in design theory. I wrote first few words and then asked other MA Design students to contribute. The result reflects the array of themes we are bombarded in our courses as well as just chatting. Perfect internal joke.

Books are not waste

Ever increasing amount of information, digitalisation of knowledge and inability of traditional containers of information – books to cope with modern speed of distribution of information turned my attention to the materiality of a book. What is it made from? And where do all the discarded books go? Is book recycling the best solution?I have found that thousands of books are being discarded every day and we need to find a solution to deal with that. The idea is to give books a new life books which can be recirculated can find new readers, books which are for some reason not going to be read should be repurposed. The rest of discarded books are safely returned to nature.The proposed system is aimed to connect existing bookcrossing and repurposing schemes  and promote creativity in finding solutions to deal with changing role of books.
