Sustainable Graphic Design

There is little appreciation for what happens to graphic design artifacts after their useful life has ended. Sustainable Graphic Design outlines graphic design's relationship to production and consumption, demonstrating how designers can contribute solution-oriented responses to consumption, through tools and methodologies applicable to both education and practice. The book provides an overview of sustainable graphic design, based on global engagement with design's relationship to consumption, and features highly creative work inspired by complex issues and including studies of a variety of visual artifacts, the larger built environment and the very ordinary products of consumption. Presenting cutting-edge work in graphic design from practitioners, educators and students from North America, Northern Europe, Australia and the Far East, the book helps students visualize their future roles engaging with the field in response to ecological concerns, social justice and present systems of design by using extensive case studies of student work with step-by step instructions adapted for use by instructors.

About the Author

Peter Claver Fine is an Assistant Professor of Art and Graphic Design at the University of Wyoming, USA.


This powerful book reawakens the social and ecological purpose of graphic design; reinvigorating the lost critique of graphic design as a radical and sophisticated tool for transformation. * Jonathan Chapman, Professor of Sustainable Design, University of Brighton * Fine's book is reminiscent of the thoughtful and historically important writings of Victor Papanek and Herbert Simon, but additionally infused with modern technology and lessons learned since Design for the Real World. Fine's insights and case studies are vital for the graphic design educator and student hopeful to positively impact the future. * Eric Benson, Associate Professor of Graphic Design, University of Illinois *
